The daughter of the real estate tycoon has dedicated much of her professional life to the family business. Will his race for the White House help or hurt her?
Ivanka Trump, like her friend Chelsea Clinton, doesnt like the press very much. Perhaps thats understandable coming from the daughter of Donald Trump, who grew up with outrageous headlines targeting her parent making the newsstands with alarming regularity. One of them a quote from his then mistress Marla Maples spelled THE BEST SEX I EVER HAD.
In a 2007 interview with GQ, Ivanka described the media at that time as vicious and brutal, as she recounted being accosted by photographers outside the exclusive all-girls Chapin school in Manhattan.

It taught me not to trust anyone, she said. You can never let your guard down, and I never really have since that time.
Ivanka might not without cause loathe journalists and want to avoid interactions with the press that dont advance the brand, but the daughter of the Republican frontrunner is going to have a tough time avoiding the spotlight in months to come, especially if she resumes campaigning for him, and if she grants more media appearances to support him now that shes dedicated birth to her third child. Her father had barely been shy about utilizing her calm and efficient public persona to his advantage before she took a break in advance of Theodores birth.
Though Ivanka tends to shy away from discussing his specific policy prescriptions, by all indications shes completely supportive of his ambitions, even if shes to indicate that she quibbles with some of what hes said hell do in the White House.
Hes my father and I love him and I fully support him. Im always there for him if its helpful, she told Town& Country this year. She added 😛 TAGEND
