Ivanka: Calling Her First Lady 'Inappropriate'

ABC's "Good Morning America"

Ivanka Trump, incoming president Donald Trump's daughter, said it was "inappropriate" to say her role in her father's administration would be like the first lady's.

"I think it's an inappropriate observation," she told Deborah Roberts on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Thursday.

Roberts pointed out comments that called Ivanka "essentially, the real first lady."

"There's one first lady, and she'll do remarkable things," Ivanka Trump said, referring to Melania Trump, her father's wife.

Ivanka is stepping away from her clothing and accessories brand that is named for her, as well as the Trump Organization, ABC News reported.

"It’s emotional," she told ABC. "I'm stepping away from my business . . . my father will be president, and hopefully, I can be there to support him and to support those causes I've cared about my whole professional career."

Her book "Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success" comes out in May, and she will donate its proceeds to charity, Ivanka said.

Melania Trump and Trump's youngest son Barron, age 10, will not move to Washington, D.C., yet, so Barron can finish the school year in New York.

That announcement led to speculation Ivanka, who is moving her family to D.C., would step in.
