Before stepping into her role at the White House, working for her father, Ivanka Trump made a name for herself as the head of a company with clothing and handbag lines and a shoe collection. Now, in her role as a White House adviser, some people believe she has taken inspiration from longtime political powerhouse Hillary Clinton in her latest outfit: a classic pantsuit.

The first daughter visited Ohio on Friday promoting her father’s tax reform plan. She stepped out wearing a three-button gray pantsuit with a fitted jacket. The 36-year-old completed the look with a white crew neck shirt peeking out from underneath the jacket. The cropped length of the pants showed off her ankles and white pumps.

The mother of three shared a series of photos on her Instagram account of the town hall engagement and, of course, took selfies with supporters. The post at the event quickly racked up over 34,000 likes and 450 comments at the time of this story.

Many commenters couldn’t help but point out that pantsuits have become synonymous with Clinton. Clinton is famous for rocking monochromatic pantsuits throughout her career, especially during her presidential campaign of 2016.

One commenter wrote, “Hillary is the only pantsuit Queen, hands down.”

Another chimed in, commenting “tell that to the Queens of pantsuits, Hillary.”

One noted Trump’s history of being sued for stealing designs: “How does stealing designs qualify you to talk about tax reform when you don’t know a deficit from a donut?”

But another approved of Trump’s look, writing, “Finally, we get a blonde that looks amazing in a pantsuit.”

One was even more harsh, writing, “Mrs. Trump and Ivanka makes the pantsuit look good. Hillary wears them to hide cankles.”
