Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner have reportedly begun looking for a house in Washington, D.C., fueling speculation that one or both will serve as an adviser to President-elect Donald Trump or have a place in his administration.
CNN reported the house hunting news Monday, noting President-elect Donald Trump's White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said on NBC’s "Today Show" after the election that he thought Kushner would "be very involved in decision-making." The news outlet also pointed out Kushner was present during Trump’s first White House visit after the election and that he has helped lead the transition effort.
Although Ivanka Trump also had involvement in her father’s campaign, making a well-received speech at the convention and helping with strategy, the president-elect has given signals he may put his adult children in charge of his many businesses while he is president rather than give them a place in his administration.
The New York Post speculated Ivanka Trump and Kushner may be looking to live in Georgetown, Silver Spring, Rockville, or Potomac with their three children to be close to an Orthodox synagogue so they can practice their Orthodox Jewish faith.
Ivanka Trump soon will meet with Al Gore regarding climate change issues in New York at Trump Tower as part of the Trump transition team, the Post noted. The First Daughter has also been instrumental in crafting a child care tax credit policy used in the campaign.
President-elect Trump’s youngest son Barron will stay in New York with incoming first lady Melania Trump at least until the school year ends.
