"I think it would've been a lot easier for her if she'd just stayed in NY and did what she was doing", the President told the Atlantic's Elaina Plott in an interview. "Because she didn't cause me to break up the marriage like the other one-I don't even want to pronounce her name".

Asked why he did not propose her for a United Nations role, Mr Trump said: "If I did, they'd say nepotism, when it would've had nothing to do with nepotism. She reacts very well - that's usually a genetic thing, but it's one of those things, nevertheless", Trump said. That marriage ended in divorce in 1999.

In a new profile of Ivanka from The Atlantic's Elaina Plott, Trump said that Ivanka's exact job coming in was unclear. Ivanka Trump was delighted with her new place in the West Wing and cast herself as a champion for women, children, families and the American workforce. Due to government nepotism regulations, Ivanka's current White House advisory role is unpaid.

In 2017 and 2018, Ivanka Trump topped Melania Trump in Forbes' "World's Most Powerful Women" list as "the de facto First Lady as her step-mother" opted to avoid the limelight.

Another senior source told the magazine that Melania and Ivanka Trump had a "desire to be mutually respectful" but said their relationship was not "affectionate". This is from an Interview that has led Trump with the USA magazine "The Atlantic".

"If I did, they'd say nepotism, when it would've had nothing to do with nepotism".

Ivanka and Kushner also raised eyebrows after a White House whistleblower told congressional committees that Trump stepped in to grant the couple security clearances after they had both been initially rejected for clearance status.
