Ivanka Trump Confirms She's Leaving the Trump Organization and Her Fashion Label

Instead, she will receive a fixed series of regular payments. This is following her earlier decision to separate her personal social media accounts from the social media accounts of her brand. "I will no longer be involved with the management or operations of either company", she wrote. You can read Ivanka's Facebook post in its entirety below.

Meanwhile Ivanka's personal Instagram is now nearly exclusively littered with family and vacation photos. Also on Thursday, Stephen Miller, the incoming senior White House adviser for policy, reportedly spent a half hour on the phone with the House Ways and Means Committee to talk child care, according to Politico.

She went on to say that she and husband Jared Kushner will move the family to the capital, where he will be Mr Trump's senior advisor, and she will "settle our three young children in to their new home and schools".

Ivanka decided in December that she wouldn't officially join Trump's administration, but she still wants someone to fight for her pet projects of supporting women entrepreneurs and economic empowerment.

According to the federal 1967 anti-nepotism law: "A public official may not appoint, employ, promote, advance, or advocate for appointment, employment, promotion, or advancement, in or to a civilian position in the agency in which he is serving or over which he exercises jurisdiction or control any individual who is a relative of the public official", A public official is also not "entitled to pay" their relative. In a statement, the transition office said Kushner would work closely with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Stephen Bannon to execute Trump's agenda.

Eisen said in an interview that "reasonable people may come to different views on this" but that he believes Trump's appointment of Kushner could prompt "some interesting litigation about whether [the 1967 law] applies or not".

Trump has already expressed effusive interest in his daughter joining his team. A well-wired source tells me her focus will be consistent with her brand: "issues affecting women who work, including family leave and equal pay". "Nobody could do better than her".

Celebrating his 36th birthday on Tuesday, the clean-cut, impeccably polite and discreet grandson of Holocaust survivors married to Trump's eldest daughter has been credited with working tirelessly behind the scenes to mastermind his father-in-law's shock victory.
