Ivanka Trump has spent the past four years amassing Chinese patents, posing with for pictures with canned vegetables and her father and making countless disingenuous, tone-deaf statements about how hard she was working to empower women.
Apparently she’s also been keeping a diary. The New York Post is reporting that the first daughter has been approached about writing a book that would take on critics who say she accomplished nothing of substance during her four years as an “adviser” to her father, Donald Trump.
A source told the New York Post’s “Page Six” that the possible book could be part of a plan to pursue political office in Florida. Ivanka and husband Jared Kushner reportedly recently purchased a $30 million plot of land on exclusive Indian Creek Island in Miami. There has been speculation that she’s considering taking on GOP Sen. Marco Rubio when his current term is up in 2022.
The source said that Ivanka “has been keeping extensive notes on her time in the White House” and that the book would be about her time in the West Wing. She wants to set the record straight on a long list of issues, including confronting her critics head-on.” Among her gripes: people who said “she was out of her depth as the president’s adviser, the constant rumors she was being marginalized by her dad, the supposed tension with (stepmother) Melania, and the very important things she got done with women’s issues, family leave and more.”
Trump’s daughter may have more to keep her occupied post-White House than deciding on finishes for her new mansion and writing a book. The Washington, D.C. district attorney is investigating possible illegal spending in connection with Trump’s 2017 inauguration and recently conducted a five hour deposition of Ivanka.
