Ivanka Will Be Reading Dad’s Executive Orders Before They’re Signed

Ivanka Trump will be reviewing some of President Trump’s executive orders before they are signed, an unprecedented level of influence for the first daughter who was recently installed as a White House special assistant.

“I’m still at the early stages of learning how everything works,” she told The New York Times for a Tuesday profile, “but I know enough now to be a much more proactive voice inside the White House.”

The profile also reported that Trump has a standing weekly meeting with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and can walk into the Oval Office and speak with her father practically whenever she wants.

The first daughter has emerged as a central player within the new administration, representing the United States on a foreign trip to Germany, helping quash an executive order that would have rescinded workplace protections for LGBT people and sitting in on high-level government meetings held by her father.
