Ivanka Trump Gets White House Office, Access to Classified Information

Though Ivanka Trump lacks a formal White House job, the United States president's older daughter is moving into her own West Wing office, an administration spokesperson said - a move that increases her profile as an influential, though unofficial, adviser to her father.

Ivanka Trump's new role was given the all-clear by the White House counsel's office and any conflicts were "worked through" with the office of government ethics, her spokeswoman said.

Now that she will be a part of the team, Ivanka says that she will voluntarily adhere to the same rules that would apply if she were a government employee.

According to Politico, her role will be to serve as her father's "eyes and ears" and to provide advice, her attorney said.

Her office will be next door to Dina Powell, a member of the National Security Council. Her husband, Jared Kushner, a man whose parents probably bought his way into Harvard, is a senior advisor to the President, after all. However, Gorelick told Politico that Ivanka Trump has not completely eliminated her conflicts of interest.

Just earlier this week, it was announced that the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, is expected to oversee the Justice Department's civil division.

Authorities said the four of those hurt had to be hospitalized, mostly for head injuries, but all were expected to recover. Morelle said the explosion was "a reminder of how unsafe [and] unpredictable volcanoes can be".

The Seattle-based company made a statement that it would drop Donald Trump's daughter's line, claiming the decision was made on the grounds of sales.

The suit also takes exception to Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway seeming to endorse Ivanka's products during a February 9 interview with Fox News.

She was seated next to German Chancellor Angela Merkel last week at a White House meeting on trade attended by the CEOs of BMW and Siemens, despite her only relevant qualification being a degree in economics. While she divested of significant assets, she retains ownership of her fashion and jewelry brand, though she stepped down before Trump assumed office. But extracting the first daughter's likeness from her products may prove hard.

Modern Appealing Clothing's lawsuit has demanded that Ivanka Trump's brand immediately stop using her political position as a vehicle to increase profits.

And though the first daughter has appointed Abigail Klem to be president of her brand, Ivanka will still have veto power over any deals that are "unacceptable from an ethics perspective".

She had sat at the Oval Office desk and controversially posed for a picture with her father and Trudeau by her side.
