WH Adviser to the President Ivanka Trump Doesn’t Do Politics

On a recent appearance on Fox & Friends, Ivanka Trump revealed that he role as “adviser to the president” doesn’t include dealing with politics.

Regarding what she advises her father on, Ivanka said: “I try to stay out of politics. His political instincts are phenomenal. He did something that no one could have imagined he’d be able to accomplish.”

Ivanka explained she isn’t “a political savant” and because of her inherent ingornace she is comfortable leaving “the politics to other people.”

However, Ivanka asserted that she does “adviser [Donald Trump] on a plethora of things.”

Exactly what Ivanka advises her father on is difficult to access considering she hasn’t vocally opposed Trump on anything.

For example, while attending the 2017 W20 Summit, Ivanka attempted in vain to white-wash her father’s very public apathy toward women. When asked what her role as First Daughter means, she said “she didn’t know… and was learning.”

Ivanka tried to paint the image of her father championing women’s rights and empowerment in an op-ed piece published prior to the W20 Summit, individual empowerment is not the same as “deconstructing any of the underlying conditions that have led to the economic inequality faced by women today.”

And yet within days of that statement and according to internal White House documents , the Let Girls Learn program, an initiative begun under the Obama administration giving girls in developing nations opportunities to receive an education, “will cease operation immediately.”

This action is yet another example of how the Trump administration is showing little concern for women’s empowerment.

Journalist Jill Filipovic points out that “there is close to zero evidence” that Melania Trump or Ivanka have ever championed women’s rights or feminism.

For all the talk about women first, Ivanka was accused by a former employee of not offering maternity leave.

Filipovic explains: “Melania and Ivanka provide good cover for Trump’s misogyny because they’re palatable, conventionally feminine women: They’re docile and poised, they don’t make demands of men, and they are above all conventionally beautiful — white and thin.”

Back in March and prior to her official role at the White House, Ivanka was given a “West Wing office, government issued communications devices and security clearance access to classified information.”

She was there alongside her father during a visit of Japanese PM Shinzo Abe to Trump Tower while her company was seeking to close a deal with a bank owned by the Japanese government.

Ivanka was present during a vocational training meeting involving Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel , and was present during discussions at the White House involving Prime Minister Justin Trudeau – caught on camera sitting next to the Canadian leader.

Later it was confirmed that Ivanka was taking an official role as adviser, even though Ivanka was (and currently still is) benefitting financially from her private corporation.

Journalist Rachel Abrams points out that while Ivanka “handed over day-to-day control of her company to her top executive, Abigail Klem, and transferred its assets to a new trust overseen by relatives of her husband”, the particulars of this agreement “have not been disclosed” which causes concerns over how much control Ivanka still has “over the brand that bears her name”.

Based on information provided by Ivanka’s attorney, she is “the sole beneficiary” of a trust she set up called the Ivanka M. Trump Business Trust.

In addition, Ivanka “will no longer appear in advertisements” for her company, and has “separated her business and personal social media accounts.”

And while this sounds like a clean break, Ivanka will continue to “receive regular financial reports on her company” and her husband, Jared Kushner, and her sister-in-law were both named as trustees so there is no separation of Ivanka from her company.
