Ivanka Trump's role to get more scrutiny

Traditionally the first lady and the first daughter get a more social role rather than a state role. However, with Ivanka's influence in the election, it appears this position is set to change.

She has already attended several top meeting with the president-elect, making it more of a when she will be given a role.

But like her father, this creates great ethical conflict. She has her jewelry and clothing companies that sales high-end merchandise. She is also a vice president, to Trump Company.

Given a state, the office would create a conundrum about her business. Only recently, she appeared wearing a $10,000 to the show looking to advertise it.

This rung many warning alarms as she appeared to use her position to advertise her business.
Nothing is illegal with this as Trump often insists "at the end of the day we still human and after the term, we have to go back to our business."

I think we'll have to see how the laws read. I would love to be able to have them involved," Trump said on Fox News of Ivanka Trump and her husband. "She and her husband were my advisors during the election, and I won. They must have done something right. I mean, I would love if they could continue by my side."

Trump has often expressed his admiration for his daughter. A while back, he even seemed to suggest that if Ivanka were not his daughter he would date her.
