“No one really knows what she does exactly”

The White House and friends of the first daughter are pushing back at the criticism, which they say is unfair.

A White House official suggested Ivanka Trump will continue to pick her battles by advocating “for these issues she’s been passionate about her entire life.”

The first daughter will be focused on the economic empowerment of women, workforce development, paid maternity leave and efforts to rid the world of human trafficking, the official said.

Asked what Ivanka Trump is hoping to achieve, the White House official said, “I think she’s in the process of determining what the deliverables are on these issues, but … she considers it an honor to have this platform and couldn’t do any of this without the president’s commitments to these same issues.”
