Ivanka Trump is working out of a West Wing office and will get access to classified information, though she is not technically serving as a government employee.

Jamie Gorelick, an attorney and ethics adviser for Ivanka Trump, said Monday that the first daughter will not have an official title, but will get a West Wing office, government-issued communications devices and security clearance to access classified information.

Gorelick said Ivanka Trump would follow all the ethics rules that apply to government employees.

Since President Donald Trump took office, his eldest daughter has been an increasingly visible presence in the White House, where her husband Jared Kushner already serves as a senior adviser. 

On Friday, she participated in a meeting on vocational training with the president and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

 Ivanka Trump, who recruited the American executives in attendance, guided the discussion. She praised her father’s ‘commitment to creating millions of jobs’ and stressed the need for private investment, noting that ‘ingenuity, creativity often comes from the determination of the private sector.’

The conversation was focused on vocational training and workforce development, not on the thornier issues of international trade.

At the end of the session, Ivanka Trump said the executives would form a taskforce that will provide a report in three months detailing programs that could be expanded and ways the countries can work together. 

In February, Ivanka met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. 

The First Daughter listened intently as Trudeau held the floor in the Cabinet Room shortly after being welcomed to Washington, D.C. by the president.

She also gave her own input, enthusiastically contributing to the round table discussion after welcoming Trudeau and entrepreneur women to the White House.

Ivanka raised some eyebrows when she posted a photo of her sitting behind the desk at the Oval Office flanked by her father and Trudeau. 

Ivanka and Trudeau kept in touch after the meeting and went to New York last week to see a Broadway play with the Prime Minister.
