What Is Ivanka Trump’s Role in the White House?

The Atlantic - 01-14


Editor's Note: This article is one of 50 in a series about Trump's first two years as president. We’re halfway through, and Ivanka Trump remains as much of a mystery as ever. Like Hillary Clinton, she has a West Wing office, and like Nancy Reagan, she has a wondering, matchless fealty to the president. She would never snatch her hand away from his, like Melania did; she would never even roll her eyes, like the Obama girls did, when they had grown tired of the turkey pardon. To Ivanka, God help us, Donald Trump is the measure of a man.
