Ivanka is often described as playing an “influential” and “powerful” role on her father’s life, so much so that some people even speculated she’d be filling in as First Lady in the White House.
Exactly what role Ivanka will play remains unclear. In the meantime, it’s likely it will be much more significant than Tiffany’s. According to Vanity Fair, Tiffany, along with her 10-year-old half-brother Barron, were the only Trump kids not part of Trump’s transition team. She was also “largely a non-presence” during her father’s campaign “until the very last weeks,” due to the fact that she was finishing college. “She will not do it if she is not comfortable with it,” Ivanka told the New York Times. “Nobody is pushing her. People refer to us as surrogates, but we are his children.”
Indeed, at age 23 and with law school likely on the way, it seems unlikely that Tiffany will have much interest in Washington, D.C., for many years to come.
