Ivanka Trump, a top White House staffer and President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter, told Fox News in an interview that aired Monday that she tried to “stay out of politics.”
Speaking with Ainsley Earhardt of “Fox & Friends,” Trump said she left “the politics to other people.”
She made the comments after being asked what she advised her father with in regard to his tweeting habits.
“I try to stay out of politics,” Trump said, adding that her father’s “political instincts are phenomenal.”
“He won,” Earhardt added.
Trump serves as assistant to the president, a high-ranking White House job where her role is somewhat undefined. Last week, she met with Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida to discuss paid family leave and childcare tax credits, an issue Trump championed while helping her father campaign for president.
In her “Fox & Friends” interview, Trump said she didn’t “profess to be a political savant.”
“So I leave the politics to other people and really lean into the issues that I care deeply about,” she said.
