All of the pieces are being put in place for Ivanka Trump to become the de facto first lady of the United States. On Thursday morning, a close source to Donald Trump’s transition team revealed to the media that The Office of the First Lady of the United States would be changed to the Office of the First Family. The report confirms the rumors that have been going around since the billionaire won the election – his daughter, Ivanka Trump, will take center stage as his right hand, not his wife, Melania Trump.
The Slovene-born American former model will be staying in New York to raise ten-year-old Baron Trump. The 46-year-old businesswoman will remain in the Big Apple until the child finishes the school year. As the blonde beauty is busy being a mom, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, will help the real estate mogul rule the world.
Hours before the change of the office title leaked, Mr. Trump revealed that his son-in-law would be indeed be one of his top advisors. Mr. Kushner played a critical role during the election. He wrote important policy speeches and pushed the mogul to take certain stances on matters related to Israel.
The husband and wife duo have made significant changes to their lives to be close to the incoming president. They have sold their New York apartment and have moved to Washington with their three young children – 5-year-old Arabella, Joseph, 3, and Theodore, nine months.
Additionally, the young mother has taken steps to cut ties with her numerous business ventures not to have any conflict of interest.
On Facebook, she explained: “When my father takes office as the 45th President of the United States of America, I will take a formal leave of absence from The Trump Organization and my eponymous apparel and accessories brand. I will no longer be involved with the management or operations of either company.”
She added: “I have appointed Abigail Klem as president to lead my brand. She will work with a board of trustees to manage the strategic and day-to-day operations of the business; I am confident that under her leadership the company will continue creating smart, solution-oriented product and content. My brothers will oversee The Trump Organization, and I know that in their capable hands the business will thrive.”
The Transition team has declined to say if the first daughter will have a staff nor exactly which role she will play in her father’s administration. The name Trump is often associated with controversy; according to obtained documents, the same day she announced she was resigning from the company, she started working on a new line of lingerie, briefs, and shapewear.
