Donald Trump has 5 children, including teenager Barron who lives at the White House with the family. Of his four adult children, only his daughter Ivanka has been given a position within the administration. Sons Donald Jr. and Eric have been put in charge of Trump’s large business empire.
The President has given his daughter and son-in-law significant responsibility. Trump recently credited his daughter with creating 14 million new jobs since he’s taken office. But she may be taking a break from Washington DC in the coming years. The first daughter recently told Face the Nation that she may leave the administration if her Father is reelected in 2020.
Ivanka Trump was asked about her future while appearing on the CBS program. She told the hosts that her decision will come down to what’s best for her family.
“I am driven, first and foremost, by my kids and their happiness, so that is always going to be my top priority and my decisions will always be flexible enough to ensure that their needs are being considered,” Trump said. “They will really drive that answer for me.”
Ivanka Trump has had some embarrassing foreign policy moments. A clip of world leaders ignoring her during the G-20 summit went viral in July of this year.
Ivanka Trump appears to be trying to get involved in a talk among Macron, May, Trudeau and Lagarde (IMF head).

The President defended his daughter, saying, “I thought Ivanka was amazing at the G-20. The foreign leaders loved her. They think she’s great.”
