It’s hard to take the spotlight away from President Donald Trump, but little Joseph Kushner — one of his grandchildren from daughter Ivanka Trump, managed to pull off the fete in great style. And he did it in great style.
The 3-year-old made funny faces on the window of the White House Oval Office on Friday while with President Trump. The youngster had some fun with onlookers nearby when he pressed his cheeks, nose and mouth on the glass.
Ivanka Trump’s signature perfume is a best seller on retail giant Amazon.
Ivanka Trump Eau de Parfum Spray For Women ($34 for a 3.4-ounce bottle) was No. 1 on Amazon’s AMZN, +0.11% list of bestselling fragrances and perfume for at least the third consecutive day. Another of the first daughter’s products, Ivanka Trump For Women Roller Ball ($15), was No. 3 on Saturday. One reviewer wrote: “I normally buy this at Nordstrom.
But now that I heard they will not carry it anymore, I was happy to find it on Amazon.” (Radha Beauty Aromatherapy was at No. 2 on Amazon’s list.) The success of the perfume on Amazon suggests the “resistance economy” to boycott products associated with the family of President Trump can help a brand as well as hurt it.
Ivanka Trump doesn’t hold an official position in her father’s administration. But you wouldn’t know it from the visuals coming out of the Trump White House.
The first daughter is regularly seen sitting in on President Trump's meetings, greeting foreign dignitaries, sitting in on news conferences and, per White House press secretary Sean Spicer, dispensing expertise in policy areas she's familiar with.
On the face of it, there's nothing wrong with that. Presidents often rely on trusted family members for counsel and advice. James Buchanan was a bachelor whose niece, Harriet Lane, took on a lot of the duties normally given to first ladies.
Gerald Ford's daughter, Susan, took on a lot of responsibilities after her mother had a mastectomy. And Hillary Clinton is perhaps the most notable example of a presidential family member formally taking on concrete policy issues (though many others have done the same informally).
Behind the scenes at the White House, U.S. President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka was a key advocate for the more measured, less combative tone he struck in his speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night, officials said.
The biggest speech of Trump's month-old presidency was the product of a 10-day effort with his top aides.
While he unveiled no significant changes to policy, the tone of Trump's speech was a far cry from his bleak "American carnage" inaugural address when he took office on Jan. 20.
The Republican president dropped some of the fierce rhetoric that had been a staple of his first weeks in office. He called for national unity and avoided a repeat of his attacks on Democratic opponents and media organizations.
