"Nepotism gone wild."
"Really, you shouldn't be sitting in that chair. It's reserved for the President of the United States. And I thought you were the smart one."
"With Trump and his smart beautiful daughter."Ivanka Trump is already a powerful first daughter, especially given the fact that not only is her father the President of the United States, but her husband, Jared Kushner, is his senior advisor. Her presence in the administration has raised a few eyebrows after she was in attendance of a meeting her father held with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Trump Tower prior to Trump's inauguration. It was apparent then that she was going to be an active participant in President Trump's administration. Ivanka Trump stays current on her Instagram account, posting photos of her activities at the White House and around Washington, D.C. She was skewered for posting a photo of herself and Kushner getting ready for date night the same evening protests were going on around the country over the president's travel ban executive order. Many believed she was tone deaf for the post.
"Rise above all of the negativity and just do your thing. Go girl go! So proud of you."

"If you run for President, you have my vote."
Ivanka has been entangled with controversy in one way or another surrounding her father as president. When it was revealed that Nordstrom was dropping her brand, President Trump unleashed fury at the department retailer. To make matters worse, his aide, Kellyanne Conway, gave Ivanka a "free commercial" on Fox News. Conway was "counseled" on her comments.
The lines of ethics and the White House have been blurred with Donald Trump as president by virtue of the fact he entered the political realm as a businessman with vast holdings. His grown children are running the businesses he divested from, but it appears to many that he's at at arm's length.
