I would like to hear one good excuse for her to have a security clearance. She has no real place in the government except for the one daddy made for her so she shouldn't be seeing any sort of confidential paperwork.
Ivanka has twice the brains of John Kennedy's younger brother who let me remind you had no governmental management expierence at all was just the product of neppotism.

Trumps kids are very bright, educated and distinguished. I can't think of any modern president that had intelligent and trustworthy adult children who he wanted consulation and advice from.

She doesn't need a gov't position to give daddy advice. That's what Sunday dinners are for.
But you know this, which is sad.
The only thing sad is the amount of programming that actually stuck with people.

What are you actually complaining about here?

Negativity is a self fulfilling prophecy, it is going down the ladder, not up it.
Let's all grow up here and deal with real issues, shall we?
IF you get offended by the president asking for free help from his daughter, which is great because she can add a younger perspective to his decisions, then you have obviously never experienced any real loss in life, and it will be very difficult if you do.
