Ivanka Trump has cast doubt on continuing in her advisory role in the administration if her father wins re-election next year.
Ivanka Trump, who is married to the wealthy property scion Jared Kushner, said on CBS’ Face the Nation that her decision to continue working in Donald Trump’s White House would be made with the interests of her three young children in mind.
“I am driven, first and foremost, by my kids and their happiness, so that is always going to be my top priority and my decisions will always be flexible enough to ensure that their needs are being considered,” Trump told the network. “They will really drive that answer for me.”
The 38-year-old former fashion designer said she was motivated by delivering “impact” in Washington, and offered a preference for “policy” over “politics” in areas such as criminal justice and childcare.
The first daughter has come under attack for acquiescing to her father’s most controversial policies, including family separation at the US-Mexico border.
In the interview, Trump was asked about her father’s impeachment. She said he was “angry at a process that is unjust”. Still, she said, the president was “energized, as are 63 million-plus voters who elected him to office”.
