Ivanka Trump moved her husband and children from New York to Washington, D.C., because of her new role … in the White House. While her stepmother is the first lady, she is reported to still be staying at Trump Tower with her ten-year-old son Barron. However, Trump seems more than enthusiastic about the political opportunities awaiting in the wings of the White House.
“Ivanka appears poised to be an advisor, advocate and hostess all at once. Which could revolutionize the role – and make her the most powerful first lady ever,” an article relays. She’s already been an indubitable fixture of her father’s campaign, so why would she leave now? If the president’s unable to uphold his promises, then his daughter will pick up the slack.
Ivanka Trump's already made a name for herself
1. Environmental Issues
She plans on easing her father into the wading pool of environmentally sound policies, and she’s even met with eco-friendly pundits on the issue. She wants to help them save the planet. “She is intrigued by the potential to serve as an envoy from President Trump to skeptical blue America. She has already brokered meetings between her father and Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio, two of the country’s most visible environmental activists,” an article states.
2. LGBTQIA Rights
Trump’s rumored to be a voice for the LGBTQIA community. She and her husband have pushed for the men and women to work in safe places of employment. “Donald Trump promised to up- hold an executive order issued by President Obama that protects LGBTQ+ people from discrimination while working as federal contractors. Ivanka Trump and her husband played a big role in this,” an article relays.
3. Women’s Rights
Does Trump stand with women? Hopefully. She seems very adrenalized about women’s rights, in general. She wants to help working mothers and their children, in particular. “Look at how much Trump hires women, how much he does rely on women, how much he relies on his own daughter. I’m sort of amazed by her. She may pull him more into the middle. She’ll be a good voice for women,” an interviewee of the New York Times relays.
4. Tax Cuts
Trump is an integral part of the $500 billion proposal, a plan that will extinguish the burden of childcare costs. However, the tax cut will only help wealthy, white-collar workers. “The benefit would allow couples who make $500,000 or less and single parents earning $250,000 or less to fully deduct the cost of childcare from their taxes. Lower-income families who don’t have a tax liability would be eligible for up to $1,200 in Earned Income Tax Credit spending rebates. The plan stands to benefit middle-income families more than low-income ones,” an article relays.
5. Her Opinion
Whether people agree or agree to disagree Trump wants to help. She may only help men and women of her socioeconomic status, but she’s still helping individuals. Hopefully, the doyenne will aspire to aid more than just 5 percent of the country’s population, though. “I hope time will prove that I have done a good job, and much more importantly, that my father’s administration is the success that I know it will be,” she tells Gayle King.
