Donald Trump would ‘love’ to have his daughter Ivanka involved in his new administration.

Donald Trump said he would ‘love’ to have his daughter Ivanka involved in his new administration as President of the United States.

Trump told Fox News’ Chris Wallace that he wants to get Ivanka and her publisher husband, Jared Kushner, involved.

“We’re working that out right now,” Trump said on Sunday.  “They’re both very talented people.”

The president-elect’s eldest daughter and her husband have reportedly been house-hunting in Washington, D.C. already. Ivanka, along with her brothers Donald Jr. and Eric, are on their father’s transition team.

Trump’s plan has one major problem, though. Their potential roles in the Trump administration may be prevented by anti-nepotism laws. Trump alluded to this in the interview, saying, “I think we’ll have to see how the laws read.”

As always, Trump wasn’t shy when it came to singing his daughter’s praises.

“If you look at Ivanka, you take a look, she’s so strong. As you know, to the women’s issue and childcare, and so many things she’d be so good. Nobody can do better than her,” Trump boasted. “I’d just have to see whether or not we can do that. She’d like to do that.”

His praises weren’t only for Ivanka though. Trump spoke about Kushner, who served as an advisor to him during the presidential campaign.

“I’d love to have Jared helping us on deals with other nations and see if we can do peace in the Middle East and other things. He’s very talented. He’s a very talented guy. So, we’re looking at that from a legal standpoint right now.”

During a 60 Minutes interview last month, Ivanka insisted she won’t play a role in her father’s administration.

“I’ve said throughout the campaign that I am very passionate about certain issues. And I that I want to fight for them,” said Ivanka, who not only serves as executive vice president of development and acquisitions within the Trump Organization but also has her own fashion brand.

“Wage equality, childcare. These are things that are very important to me. I’m very passionate about education,” she says. “Really, promoting more opportunities for women. So, you know there are a lot of things that I feel deeply, strongly about. But not in a formal administrative capacity.”

Father and daughter were criticized when Ivanka attended the future POTUS’ meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. She also sat in on a call with Argentine president Mauricio Macri which raised many questions about Trump’s judgment and potential conflicts of interest.
