Ivanka Trump Taking Official Job In White House
Ivanka Trump will become an unpaid special assistant in her father’s White House, the Trump administration announced late Wednesday, ending months of speculation about whether the first daughter would have a formal role in the government.
“I will … serve as an unpaid employee in the White House office, subject to all of the same rules as other federal employees,” she said in a statement, stressing that she would abide by all necessary disclosure and ethics requirements.
Politicos were anticipating news about her place in the White House, after a story broke that she would be soon moving into a West Wing office. She and her husband Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to Trump, are seen as crucial behind-the-scenes players in crafting policies and managing crises.
