President Donald Trump’s adviser and oldest daughter Ivanka Trump wouldn’t commit to serving in the White House if her father wins the 2020 election.
Appearing on “Face The Nation,” Trump indicated that her decision to remain in the administration was dependent on the needs of her family.
“I am driven first and foremost by my kids and their happiness, so that’s always going to be my top priority, and my decisions will always be flexible enough to ensure that their needs are being considered first and foremost. So, they will really drive that answer for me,” she told CBS anchor Margaret Brennan during an interview set to air on Sunday.
Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are both senior advisers in the West Wing—though they don’t take a salary.
“I think for me, I came down here—it’s about the impact,” she continued. “It’s about being able to deliver for the forgotten men and women that I met over the course of two years as I campaigned around this country. And over the last two and a half years as I’ve traveled to almost every state in this nation. It’s about providing pathways to opportunity.”
Through her time in the White House, Trump has contributed to carrying out her father’s workforce development initiatives. Because of Trump’s leadership of the Office of Economic Initiatives, “millions of opportunities have been created for America’s workers both by legislative and administration action, including Perkins CTE, tax reform, the National Council for the American Worker, and the 6.5 million opportunities for career enhancement, continuing education, and on-the-job training pledged by 200 companies in the private sector for American students and workers,” said a White House official.
Trump has also committed to helping women in developing countries. In February, she announced the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative and launched $50 million program to empower women in the workplace around the world.
During the interview with Brennan, Trump added that the work is “unfinished.”
“We’ve done so much, but it’s not enough yet,” she said.
