When it was announced by the White House that Ivanka Trump would have an office in the West Wing, along with security clearance, it raised ethical issues and dominated the headlines. In her new job as an assistant to the president, Ivanka Trump will join her husband, Jared Kushner, at work every day in the West Wing. Kushner is an influential senior adviser to the president.
Now, Ivanka has an ‘official’ job as an assistant to the president. Ivanka Trump will join her husband, Jared Kushner, at work every day in the West Wing. Kushner is an ‘influential senior adviser’ to the president.
Reporting that it was an “unpaid” job, it does make one wonder if this is similar to what her father claimed, who initially said he would not take a salary, but the White House later confirmed that he was collecting a monthly paycheck, and would donate the money to charity at the end of the year.
