Acquiescing to criticism over ethics, Ivanka Trump will take unpaid federal job in White House

Category: Events 

First daughter Ivanka Trump will take on a federal job in the White House, Maggie Haberman and Rachel Abrams of The New York Times reported on Wednesday. Trump, like her husband Jared Kushner, will be an adviser to her father. She won’t draw a salary, but she will be an official federal employee, which will subject her to the same ethics rules every other federal worker must abide by. Her official title will be special assistant to the president.


Last week, news emerged that Trump had been given an office in the West Wing and was being allowed special security clearances, but that she would refrain from taking a role as an official employee. That move set off alarm bells with ethics experts who worried that all of her business entanglements presented too many possibilities for conflicts of interest. Trump’s shift to make her employment official is in direct response to those concerns.


“I have heard the concerns some have with my advising the president in my personal capacity while voluntarily complying with all ethics rules, and I will instead serve as an unpaid employee in the White House office, subject to all of the same rules as other federal employees,” Trump said in a statement.
