----------------------------------


Though Ivanka Trump lacks a formal White House job, the president’s older daughter is moving into her own West Wing office, an administration spokesperson said  — a move that increases her profile as an influential, though unofficial, adviser to her father.

President Trump has named Ivanka, 35, the mastermind behind his child-care and maternity leave plans, the first proposals on such issues from a Republican president. Since the election, she has sat in meetings with world leaders, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Politico reports she is also working to obtain a security clearance and will receive this week government communications.

The White House did not respond to further requests for comment.

Ivanka's political ascent stands in contrast with some of her previously stated intentions. In January, she announced that she and her husband, Jared Kushner, would be moving to the nation’s capital — but she would be taking time off to focus on her family.  “I plan to take time to settle our three young children into their new home and schools," she wrote on Facebook at the time.

Her role is to try and fool the public into believing her father knows what he is doing. She will gaze affectionately upon him and he will subtly slip his hands around her hips at photo ops.

Other than that, I am not sure why she is there.

He has been saying and doing many stupid things lately and they are increasing quickly. She is there to be his babysitter, hand holder and interpreter. She'll sit in on his secret briefings and then when they are over she'll explain what was just told him in words he can understand. She is there to help cover up his failing mind and the parts off his mental illness that he has already had and to try to make him more presentable to the public. She is his nursing assistant and companion.
