Ivanka is heading to Washington to be the most visible ‘First Daughter’ and Liberals are freaking out!
Ivanka and husband, Jared Kushner have made financial and career changes in order to comply with ethics regulations for the new roles they will fill in Washington. Jared has been asked to be a senior advisor to Donald Trump.
Though she hasn’t taken an official role, it is believed that Ivanka may be handling much of the role of First Lady while Melania stays in New York with Barron to finish the school year.
The 35-year-old has stepped down from her post as Executive Vice President of Development & Acquisitions as the Trump Organization after 11 years with the company while also resigning from her job running her eponymous line of clothing, shoes and jewelry.
Ivanka also sold off all her common stock in the Trump Organization so that she can no longer benefit from the company’s profits.
The decision of the married mother-of-three to step down from her jobs seems to confirm the long held belief that she will be performing some of the duties which are normally assigned to the first lady while her father is in office.
She will certainly be the most visible first daughter that has ever been in the White House, and a source close to the family tells DailyMail.com that she is taking that role ‘very seriously’ at this time.
‘She want to be respectful,’ added the source…
…Vanity Fair was the first to report that Ivanka had stepped down from her leadership and director positions at the two companies.
That move also means that Ivanka is officially in compliance with ethics laws and free to accept a job in her father Donald’s administration at a later date should she have a change of heart…
…Ivanka has also had to deal with a great deal of public criticism as a result of her close relationship and support for her father including protesters who picketed outside the Park Avenue apartment where she lives with Jared and their three children – Arabella, 5, Joseph, 3, and Theodore, who will turn one in March.
There was a movement that began in November calling for not only a boycott of Ivanka’s clothing, shoes, jewelry and fragrances, but also the companies that carry them in their stores.
That forced the staff at the company to release a statement addressing the concerns of he public, saying: ‘Our company’s message is not political – it never was and it never will be – however, Ivanka, personally, has an increased opportunity to advocate for woman and be a positive force for change.’
