Ivanka Trump

Most peo­ple around Don­ald Trump stand to gain sig­nif­i­cantly if things work out for him, but have lit­tle to lose if they don’t, says The New Yorker. How­ever, there is one per­son with “a great deal at stake in terms of rep­u­ta­tion and per­sonal am­bi­tion”: his daugh­ter Ivanka. Her Trump “sub­brand” – a fash­ion line and life­style web­site – is “built around young pro­fes­sional women and work­ing mothers – two groups who ap­pear to be re­coil­ing from her father’s pres­i­den­tial can­di­dacy in large num­bers”. Ivanka also has a book com­ing out called Women Who Work. At last week’s For­tune Most Pow­er­ful Women Sum­mit, she tried to present the “chal­leng­ing ar­gu­ment” that “she was both an im­por­tant in­flu­ence on her father yet com­pletely re­moved from any­thing he did”. Not ev­ery­one was per­suaded.
