Another key issue for Ivanka is equality for women in the workplace. She was instrumental in making this a key part of Donald Trump’s campaign messaging, heavily influencing his child care reform plan to include federally-mandated maternity leave. The President-Elect’s child care reforms also include tax deductions for child care expenses and tax-free dependent care savings accounts.

Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, has also played an integral role in the campaign, becoming a key advisor for President-Elect Trump throughout the cabinet selection process. Kushner is himself a successful real estate mogul, whose family’s wealth rivals that of the Trumps, and is the owner of the New York Observer.

Given her business acumen, political poise, family support, and the unquestionable faith that President-Elect Donald Trump has in her, she is enormously qualified for the position.

Kate Andersen Brower, the author of “First Women: The Grace and Power of America’s Modern First Ladies”, in a column for the Washington Post writes, “…unlike her predecessors who weren’t the wife of the president, Ivanka appears poised to be an adviser, advocate and hostess all at once. Which could revolutionize the role — and make her the most powerful first lady ever.”
