Ivanka Trump gets West Wing office but will not be a government employee with a salary.

Ivanka Trump’s role, according to her attorney Jamie Gorelick, will be to serve as the president’s “eyes and ears” while providing broad-ranging advice, not just limited to women’s empowerment issues.

Politico

Maybe she and Jared can keep Bannon under control.

In an alternate universe, Chelsea Clinton was going to get a private office in the West Wing just to hang around and give advice to her mom, but conservatives had such a cow about it that the plan was abandoned...

I hate to be the voice of reason here, but...

What makes you think Ivanka knows anything more about being president, running the country and dealing with the world than her unstable old man? She's an over-privileged, greedy fashion hooker...hardly qualifications for dispensing any competent cosmic advice.

What steve... said: to keep Bannon, Miller, Reince and the other neo-Nazis in check.

Talk about raging antisemitism, stereotyping a well educated woman just because of her ancestry
.
is it not amazing SteveG, that Trump will allow an orthodox Jewish woman right next door to him?.....

Family members (usually WIVES, though) giving behind-the-scenes advice (or more accurately, opinion) is nothing new.

But for today's First Family, lacking competency, tact, decorum, and credibility, they might as well just give her a desk in the Oval Office.

I think the wrong Trump ran for President - Ivanka might have been a better choice.

She is not as stupid nor as volatile as her old man. I guarantee she is there to sit in on meetings and try to bring conversations back on topic when Daddy's mind starts wandering off into the weeds. "Yes, Hillary is awful, Dad, but right now we're talking about the budget."

Sounds good, but there is no evidence to believe that.

She doesn't act out in public, so that tells me she is far better at optics than her old man. Upon reflection, she has stumbled badly but she doesn't have public hissy fits.

There's a lot of things she can't get prosecuted for if she isn't a paid employee.

Not being paid allows her to skirt the Federal anti-nepotism laws, same as for her husband.

Would you care to enumerate Ivanka's political and domestic and foreign policy formation experience, bill?

I think that is still an open question. Here is the law:
