A month before Donald Trump becomes president, chattering classes in New York and Washington are abuzz with signs that his daughter Ivanka will play an active role in his White House.
Ivanka, currently vice president in the family business, and her real estate developer and publisher husband have been a constant presence by the president-elect’s side since his November 8 election victory.
CNN reports that the 35-year-old mother of three is poised to play an active role as an adviser, assume some duties normally assigned to the first lady and get office space in the East Wing of the White House.
Ivanka and husband Jared Kushner, who has been credited with being the brains behind the scenes that helped get his father-in-law elected, have been reportedly house hunting in Washington for days.
While Trump’s third wife, Melania, is still expected to play a role, she is planning to live in New York with the couple’s young son at least until the end of the school year in 2017.
