Ivanka Trump said she would work in the White House in an un­paid, in­for­mal ad­vi­sory role to the president as she sought to al­lay ethics con­cerns about work­ing there. “I have heard the con­cerns some have with my ad­vis­ing the president in my per­sonal ca­pac­ity while vol­un­tar­ily com­ply­ing with all ethics rules and I will in­stead serve as an un­paid em­ployee in the White House of­fice, sub­ject to all of the same rules as other fed­eral em­ploy­ees,” she said in a state­ment. Ques­tions about pos­si­ble con­flicts of in­ter­est arose af­ter it was an­nounced on March 20 that Trump, 35, would be­come an in­for­mal ad­viser to her fa­ther, President Don­ald Trump, with an of­fice in the West Wing. She has been an in­creas­ingly in­flu­en­tial ad­viser to the president and her hus­band, Jared Kush­ner, is a pow­er­ful Trump ad­viser.
