Ivanka Trump Confirms She's Leaving the Trump Organization and Her Fashion Label

"The main thing with Jared", a transition official said, "is that he's got Trump's back and Trump knows it".

'As she and Jared move their family to D.C., Ivanka will focus on settling her children into their new homes and their new schools, ' Dillon said, using almost identical language to that used by Ivanka in her post.

Klem previously served as the chief brand officer of Ivanka Trump for a little over three years.

Leaders on the House Judiciary Committee wrote a letter calling on the Department of Justice and Office of Government Ethics to look into anti-nepotism laws that might limit what Kushner can and cannot do.

Having Ivanka simultaneously running the family business would have proved untenable.

Kushner will resign from his positions as chief executive of the Kushner Companies and as publisher of the New York Observer newspaper and divest from any interests in the New York Observer, Thrive Capital, the 666 Fifth Avenue office building in midtown Manhattan and any foreign investments.

Ivanka Trump is also stepping down from her role from her Ivanka Trump fashion brand.

Now, the question is how much pressure from Congress or the public Trump will continue to face over his potential conflicts of interest, and whether he will see fit to take any additional action. The "kitchen cabinet" are people who are unofficial advisors. "Thank you to those of you who've lent your voices and perspective".

Hulu Will Price Live TV Service at Under $40 a Month
Content is obviously a huge deal with these live streaming options, but perhaps the biggest selling point is going to be price. After CBS launched its own paid service "CBS All-Access" four months ago it seemed that other partnerships could be unlikely.

Richard Briffault, a government ethics expert at Columbia Law School, disagreed, saying: "Given the fact that the president is specifically mentioned, you would think that someone that is working for the president would be covered" by the anti-nepotism law.

An attorney for Kushner says there is no legal barrier to prevent him serving as a Trump advisor.

The withdrawal from professional work comes amid amid a short-term professional blow to Ivanka (whose father and husband are both billionaires).

Dillon argued that setting up a blind trust or selling the business weren't feasible options on Wednesday.

Trump has said federal conflict of interest statutes don't apply to the president, and that by handing over managerial control to his sons, he is going above and beyond what is required. President-elect Trump has said he will pass his own business interests over to his sons, Eric and Donald Trump Jr., though it is not clear whether he intends to fully divest himself.

Ivanka's Facebook post can be read in full below.

"I am eager to hear more from them as I determine the most impactful and appropriate ways for me to serve our country", Trump added.

Kushner, who married Trump's daughter Ivanka in 2009, is closer to Donald Trump than any other adviser, and has provided input on all of his father-in-law's hiring decisions.
