Ivanka Trump at White House Meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel
President Donald J. Trump's daughter Ivanka has been in the news lately for a whole host of reasons. But unlike the attention usually showered on presidential children, attention on her has been more on the inquisitive side, specifically, why she is always present in meetings with world leaders at the White House. There is a lot of curiosity as to what her role is at her dad's White House. Before her dad became President, she was his trusted business partner. The logical question being raised now with her presence at the White House is whether she is using the hallowed office to conduct her father's business. This raises conflict of interest questions and is also possibly a violation of the Emoluments Clause(Foreign Leaders). Yours Truly recently asked this question in a Tweet to White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus(see Tweet below)

Some sections of the media have confronted the Trump White House with the Ivanka question. The White House  has always dismissed such questions saying the President's critics are just jealous because he is very close with his adult children and that it's very normal for them to desire spending time with him at the White House. In essence the response from the Trump White House, admittedly a very clever one, has been that critics are "mean" or "cruel" to even ask why Ivanka is at such high level meetings with her dad. In other words, what kind of a person gets mad that someone is spending a lot of time with their dad?
The "cruel" and "mean" defense however is getting old and the White House needs to explain what Ivanka's role is at the White House. Specifically, the White House needs to assure people that she is not there as her dad's business partner or even using the hallowed office to advance her personal business interests. Her continued mingling with foreign leaders raises the prospect of Emoluments Clause violations. The sooner this question is addressed the better because like the Tax Return question, it will not go away. It will only get louder.

I am not really aware with Donald Trump's daughter. Well, I don't think there is wrong with her being in the meetings just like what you have said here. I think I will just get curious a lot when she starts involving with some other people's business. I am pretty sure that her presence is there in the White House because she supports her father with his duty. And I believe there is nothing wrong with that.

Ivanka plans to continue to own her eponymous fashion and jewelry business, even though she has stepped back from daily management. Her father has followed that pattern, too, continuing to own The Trump Organization while putting his two eldest sons in charge of management. But just having a high-visibility role could stir up questions about whether her White House presence could be seen as promoting her products as people try to curry favor with her. Her appointment certainly does raise some steep ethical issues. I am not surprised, however, given the prominent role she has been playing all along despite her initial claim that she would not be involved in politics. This is the new dynasty.

Do you think her role is so essential? You are probably right. I won't argue with that.

I don't understand why you care about it so much? Why it is so important for you?
