West Wing Dweller And Presidential Advisor Ivanka Trump: 'I Try To Stay Out Of Politics’

The senior advisor to President Trump just said she's trying to stay out of politics. Because that makes sense.


In an interview with Fox News‘ Ainsley Earhardt on Monday, special advisor to the president Ivanka Trump said she tries to stay out of politics when asked about the president’s Twitter habit.

Lest we forget Ivanka, the daughter President Trump, also has an office in the West Wing. So this makes perfect sense.

“I try to stay out of politics. His political instincts are phenomenal. He did something that no one could have imagined he would be able to accomplish. There were very few that saw it. Early on, I feel blessed to have been part of the ride from day one and before. But I don’t profess to be a political savant.”

Ivanka went on to say that she is proud of her father and excited for the opportunity to help him accomplish his goals on behalf of the American people. She added that she remains honest with her father about her opinions on important issues.

“Sometimes we agree. Sometimes we disagree. I think it’s normal to not have a 100-percent aligned viewpoint on every issue. I think that would be a very strange scenario.”

Since the Inauguration, many outlets have speculated about the Ivanka’s influence on her father’s decision making in regards to climate change, working families and women’s issues. But so far, it appears Ivanka’s “progressive” views haven’t had much of an affect on President Trump’s policy decisions.
