Ivanka Trump to become official White House employee

Ivanka Trump is officially joining her father's administration as an unpaid employee, after her plans to serve in a more informal capacity were questioned by ethics experts.

She has been an increasingly influential adviser to the president and her husband, Jared Kushner, is a powerful Trump adviser.

She added that she'd made the decision after "working closely and in good faith with the White House Counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role". However, ethics experts anxious that the setup allowed her to avoid guidelines that employees are forced to abide by. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., sent a letter to the Office of Government Ethics on Wednesday asking them to determine which ethics rules apply to Ivanka Trump. That would trigger transparency and ethical provisions, including a law prohibiting conflicts of interest.

"I don't think he would call it defeat", said Gwenda Blair, author of The Trumps: Three Generations of Builders and a President.

Former President Barack Obama repeatedly mocked Trump as he sat in the audience at the dinner in 2011, which many have speculated fuelled Trump's desire to enter the political arena.

In an indication that another wave of hostility may be on the way, the president's spokesman said Tuesday that no one employed at the White House would be present at the dinner. "Let's hope it doesn't turn out to be an isolated moment of sanity". And this isn't the first time Trump has faced defeat, nor is it the first time a president has faced defeat on this very issue. "She will file the financial disclosure forms required of federal employees and be bound by the same ethics rules that she had planned to comply with voluntarily".

She is relinquishing control of her lifestyle brand, but is retaining ownership.

"She will not be his only source of input and insight, obviously, but she may be able to provide insights into the concerns of people whom he might not meet as President", Gorelick told CNN via email last week. The business can not make deals with any foreign state, and the trustees will confer with Gorelick over any new agreements. She has always been a key trusted adviser to her father, through her young adulthood to her time as executive vice president of real estate development and acquisition at the Trump Organization, and, ultimately, to his 2016 presidential campaign.
