Some rumors have been flying about our nation’s First Daughter. Is it possible she will act as First Lady with Melania Trump not moving to the White House right away?
No, Ivanka Trump will not fill in for Melania as First Lady, saying such rumors are “inappropriate.” However, she is moving into the neighborhood.
The highly educated and successful 35-year-old would be an excellent First Lady, but she leaves that role to her father’s wife, Melania Trump.
When asked what she tells her children about their grandfather’s role as president, Ivanka said, “I tell them that their grandfather is going to Washington D.C. with the hope of helping as many people as he can.”
Ivanka does hope to help her father accomplish that goal, maintaining that her move to Washington will keep her in close reach of the White House where she plans to do everything she can to support her father.
To avoid conflicts of interest, Ivanka is removing herself from her business interests and focusing on advocating for the issues she has “cared about for [her] whole career,” as she puts it.
Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, will also be around to help out his father-in-law in the White House. Kushner has been named a senior adviser and is a very trusted confidant to President Trump.
Overall, Ivanka suggested that speculation about her potential to act as First Lady is “a bit sexist,” worrying that the rumors stems from some Americans’ inability to think of two strong women defining separate roles in the White House.
Not us, Ivanka! You have to respect the smarts, business skill, and generous character of both Melania and Ivanka as well as the rest of the Trump family! I don’t see both women as being in competition with one another. Instead, I think the more brilliant Trump family members we have on board working together, the better for the nation.
One thing is sure, Ivanka and Melania are both big steps up from Michelle Obama. These two actually have pride in our country!
