Who is Ivanka ?
Ivana Marie “Ivanka” Trump is the daughter of US President Donald Trump by his first wife, former model Ivana Trump. Ivanka was born on October 30, 1981. She has established herself as an American television personality, fashion designer, author and businesswoman before she was appointed an advisor to the President of the United States, Donald Trump.
She is the fourth generation businessperson who has followed in the footsteps of her great-grandmother Elizabeth Christ Trump, who founded The Trump Organization. She had served as a boardroom judge on her father’s TV show The Apprentice.
Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, was appointed Senior Advisor to the President in January 2017. She began serving the administration of her father in late March 2017. Considered part of the president’s inner circle, Ivanka, was assigned the official, unpaid position after ethics concerns were raised about her access to material while not being held to the same restrictions as a federal employee.
Trump’s first book, The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life, was published in October of 2009. Her second book, Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success, was published in May 2017 with the help of a writer, a researcher, and a fact-checker.
In response to Ivanka leading the U.S. delegation to India, supporting women’s entrepreneurship globally, an Indian diplomat was quoted as stating: “We regard Ivanka Trump the way we do half-wit Saudi princess. It’s in our national interest to flatter them.”
