The New York Times has already crowned her the most influential first daughter since Alice Roosevelt Longworth. And with Kushner being called the "president in-law," the two are set to become the most powerful couple in Washington.
Jared Kushner, whom many credit with having won the presidency for Donald Trump, is also expected to be his father in-law's point policy person on the Middle East, with Trump even stating he believes Kushner could broker peace between the Israelis and Palestinians.
Ever since news broke that Melania Trump would not be moving immediately to Washington, D.C., when her husband takes office, there's been speculation that Donald Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka, could take on the role of a surrogate first lady in her father's White House. But Ivanka firmly denied those rumors during an interview on Good Morning America, telling Deborah Roberts, "There is one first lady, and she'll do remarkable things."
The full interview airs on 20/20 on Thursday, and Roberts says Ivanka told her the speculation about her role in the White House was sexist. "I think it's an inappropriate observation," Ivanka says in the clip.
It was confirmed earlier this month that Ivanka will not take a job in her father's White House at this point, although she is stepping down from her role in the Trump Organization and resigning from her fashion label. Her husband, Jared Kushner, has been appointed as a senior advisor to the president-elect.
After wearing a white Oscar de le Renta suit to see her father sworn in as president of the United States, Ivanka Trump switched to a champagne princess-style gown by Carolina Herrera for the evening’s three balls.
As Yahoo News reports, the first daughter has been friends with the designer for years. Herrera recently dressed Michelle Obama for the December cover of Vogue, and she predicted shortly after the election that fellow designers would move past their opposition to dressing the Trumps.
“I think that in two or three months they’ll reach out, because it’s fashion,” Herrera said. “You’ll see everyone dressing Melania. She’s representing the United States.”
