When President Donald Trump took office in January of 2017, Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner moved to the DC area and joined the Trump administration as White House advisers. While being featured in multiple photo ops and inserted into international diplomacy, people have been critical of Ivanka's lack of accomplishments on her stated projects.
However Ivanka and her handlers routinely assure the public she is "quietly working behind the scenes." Meanwhile the author of Trump's book Art of the Deal, Tony Schwartz, stated Ivanka was the worst of the Trump children.
