WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Ivanka Trump said Wednesday that she would work at the White House in an informal, unpaid advisory role to the president as she sought to allay ethical concerns about working there.

“I have heard the concerns that some have about me advising the President in my personal capacity while voluntarily complying with all ethical rules and will instead serve as an unpaid employee in the White House office, subject to the same. rules than other federal employees, ”he said in a statement.

Questions about potential conflicts of interest arose after it was announced on March 20 that Trump, 35, would become an informal adviser to his father, President Donald Trump, with an office in the west wing.

She has been an increasingly influential adviser to the president and her husband, Jared Kushner, is a powerful adviser to Trump.
