Ivanka Trump Gets West Wing Office, Access To ‘Classified Information’

Despite holding no official title, President Trump’s 35-year-old daughter Ivanka is reportedly getting an office (and access to classified information and a government-issued phone) in the White House West Wing, stepping up her highly visible role in helping advise her father.

Reuters reports that a White House official on Monday confirmed reports that Trump’s daughter would be getting her own West Wing space, as well as access to classified information and a government-issued phone.

She is not expected to have an official title and will not be paid a salary.

 

Ivanka Trump will be joining her husband, Jared Kushner, who is a chief adviser to the president and is a regular presence at his father-in-law’s side.

 

When Kushner’s job was announced earlier this year, aides said Ivanka would not take on a role in her father’s White House but would focus on settling her family in Washington.

 

Since then, she has been a frequent behind-the-scenes adviser. Last Friday, she sat next to visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel when Merkel visited the White House.

We are sure this ‘access to classified information’ will become a brief media narrative (all eyes still on Gorsuch and Comey) as Democrats raise ‘conflict of interest’ concerns, even though Ivanka has divested her ‘Ivanka Trump’ brand into a trust.
