President-elect Donald Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka, is reportedly calling Republican members of Congress to push ahead on childcare legislation.

Sarah Chamberlain, the president and CEO of the center-right organization Republican Main Street Partnership, told Independent Journal Review that Ivanka Trump has been on the phone with GOP lawmakers since her father's victory last month.

"She's calling some to talk about the childcare provisions," Chamberlain told IJR. "It's gonna be a big issue for her."

"I think she's hoping to [play a large role in the administration]," Chamberlain added. "It did come out she's gonna have an office in the East Wing and actually I think she's gonna be a great addition. I think she was a huge help in getting her father elected."

CNN reported Thursday, citing an unnamed source on Trump's transition team, reported
Thursday that Ivanka Trump has called Ways and Means committee members, female members of Congress she met on the Hill in September with Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., and other members of Congress.

In September, Trump unveiled a set of policy proposals aimed at making childcare more affordable during a speech in suburban Pennsylvania.

Speaking alongside his daughter, Trump said he would aim to make childcare expenses tax deductible for families earning less than $500,000, and called for establishing tax-free accounts for childcare.
