Ivanka Trump is set to get her own office in the West Wing


Ivanka Trump has secured her own office in the White House's West Wing, according to Politico.

Despite vowing to play no formal role in her father's administration, President Trump's first daughter is also in the process of obtaining a security clearance as well as a government-issued cellphone, Ivanka Trump’s lawyer, Jamie Gorelick, confirmed to Politico.

Although Ivanka Trump will not be a paid government employee, her attorney said she will be the president's "eyes and ears." 

“Our view is that the conservative approach is for Ivanka to voluntarily comply with the rules that would apply if she were a government employee, even though she is not," Gorelick told Politico. 

For the White House, this in an unprecedented situation  -- one that has raised questions about potential conflicts of interest.

In an attempt to ease those concerns, Ivanka Trump has given up control of her fashion empire.

Under this new arrangement, Ivanka Trump will no longer appear in advertisements for her brand. During the process of ceding control over the company, she created a trust earlier this month. 

“Ivanka created the trust to separate herself from the business and implement controls and processes that facilitate compliance with ethical requirements,” Gorelick told The New York Times.
