Tiffany once went to Ivanka for help
Growing up in California greatly limited Tiffany’s physical access to her father, forcing her on at least one occasion to go through Ivanka for help. In the book The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life (per Vanity Fair), Ivanka recalls a time in which Tiffany went to Ivanka for advice on how to ask their father for a paternal credit card. “All she wanted, really, was a way to enjoy some of the privileges her friends got to enjoy, in the same way she would have enjoyed them if she’d lived under our father’s roof,” Ivanka wrote.
In the end, Ivanka says she used her own influence on her father to push the request through. “Big Sis did an end-around to save Tiffany the trouble. I didn’t tell her, of course, but I went to our father and suggested he think about surprising Tiffany with a credit card for Christmas, with a small monthly allowance on it,” Ivanka wrote. “Sure enough, he did just that. Tiffany was thrilled and relieved. And so appreciative.”
