Ivanka Trump, daughter of president Donald Trump, is to take an official, unpaid job as his assistant. That’s Assistant to the President, not Assistant President.
In a statement, the White House said it was “pleased that Ivanka Trump has chosen to take this step in her unprecedented role as first daughter”.
Ms Trump said in her statement that she had been “working in good faith with the White House Counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role”.
Ethics experts cried foul when it emerged last week that Ms Trump was to be given a West Wing office and security clearance, without formally joining the administration.
You’re wondering where the bottom is. There is no bottom.
