Ivanka Trump Tries To Stay Out Of Politics

President Trump at the White House in Washington on April 26

What exactly is Ivanka Trump's role working for her father's administration in the White House?

"He did something that no one could have imagined he'd be able to accomplish", Ivanka Trump said of her father, President Donald Trump.

Of her father, Trump added, "It's really remarkable".

But aside from being someone Trump can trust implicitly, Ivanka also said she brings another asset to the table, and one that's not always easy to find in Washington.

The first daughter spoke about her three children's predilection for candies in response to a question from Earhardt about whether they understand that their grandfather is the American President. "Sometimes we agree, sometimes we disagree".

She made the comments after being asked about what she advises her father with regard to his tweeting habits.

It was the second time on June 26 Ivanka, a White House senior adviser, has found herself on the focus of negative attention. "I leave the politics to other people and really lean on those issues that I feel deeply about". There were very few who thought, early on. That would be a very unusual scenario.

To paraphrase Marco Rubio's description of Barack Obama: Let's dispel once and for all with this fiction that Ivanka Trump doesn't know what she's doing. During the interview, she said she advises the president on a "plethora of things".

She wouldn't reveal exactly what the two differ on, but reiterated that "it's normal to not have 100 percent aligned viewpoints on every issue". "All different viewpoints leads to positive things".

As CNN's Brian Stelter pointed out on Sunday, "Fox and Friends" has become a full-on infomercial for Trump, and the completely unskeptical look at the Trump family continued with this Ivanka interview. "I'm grateful for the opportunity to teach her about the judicial system in our country firsthand", Ivanka Trump wrote in an Instagram caption accompanying a photo of the pair.
