Writing in the Spectator Christmas Edition, George Osborne describes meeting Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared at a media conference in Aspen. ‘The first TV debate was just days away,’ he writes, and I asked them what Donald was doing to prepare for it.’
They told me he was doing nothing!
He had dismissed all attempts of theirs to coach or advise him, because he thought the public would see he was scripted and his appeal was precisely because he wasn’t.
I realised that the political rules I had grown up with were being rewritten.
TAP – maybe his phone calls with the Taiwanese President was another unscripted and unplanned event!
US President-elect Donald Trump is trying to involve his daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner in his administration.
In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, the future president said he had to see “how the laws read,” when asked if the two would be moving to Washington, DC.
“We’re working that out right now. They’re both very talented people,” Trump said. “I would love to be able to have them involved.”
Ivanka was reportedly caught hunting for a new house in the US capital.
The elder daughter of the future president is a mother of three and runs her own women’s fashion line, apart from working for the Trump Organization.
The 35-year-old, once brought to media attention over father’s sexually offensive remarks about her, currently lives in New York.
“If you look at Ivanka — she’s so strongly, as you know, into the women’s issues and childcare … Nobody could do better than her,” the New York billionaire told Fox News.
He added that he was willing to use her husband on clinching deals with other nations.
“He’s very talented, he’s a very talented guy,” Trump said. “So we’re looking at that from a legal standpoint right now.”
According to Tampa-based investigative journalist Wayne Madsen, Kushner “comes from an orthodox Jewish family in New York that has very close links with the Likud party of Israel.”
The couple’s presence at a meeting of Trump with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe drew criticism from political experts recently as they both lack the security clearance needed to attend a meeting with a world official.
