Donald Trump has called a National Emergency to fund his border wall. Can he make a deal?

She was Donald Trump’s golden child, the daughter he adored so much, he once explained, that if he weren’t her father “perhaps [he’d] be dating her.”

But according to a new book, the rift between Donald and Ivanka Trump has grown so wide that he even tried to have her and husband Jared Kushner fired from the White House.

In Kushner Inc., a new account of Ivanka and Jared’s unprecedented and problematic rise to power, journalist Vicky Ward claims after interviewing more than 200 people that Trump instructed former Chief of Staff John Kelly to “get rid” of the couple from his administration because they were garnering too much negative press.

“Get rid of my kids; get them back to New York,” he allegedly told Kelly in 2017, the New York Times reports, complaining they “didn’t know how to play the game.”

After Kelly advised Trump it would be too difficult to fire them, the pair allegedly settled on making Ivanka and Jared’s lives in the West Wing difficult so they would want to resign.

But Ivanka and Jared, both senior advisers to the president, have outlasted any attempts to force them out of Washington, and Ward writes that Trump’s desire to have them gone fluctuates.

While Kelly resigned from the Trump administration in December 2018, Jared and Ivanka have only gained influence. Jared is working on a plan for peace in the Middle East (yes, really) while Ivanka focuses on areas including women’s economic empowerment, working family issues, workforce development, promoting STEM education and combating human trafficking.

Trump recently said his daughter has “created millions of jobs” without offering any information to back the claim.

The book also alleges Ivanka denied her father was a racist after he said there was “blame on both sides” following the neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017, in which anti-racism campaigner Heather Heyer was killed.

“My dad’s not a racist; he didn’t mean any of it,” Ivanka allegedly said in a meeting at the White House with former economic adviser Gary D. Cohn.

“That’s not what he said,” she allegedly insisted.

In response to the book, a representative for Kushner said “It seems [Ward] has written a book of fiction rather than any serious attempt to get the facts.”

Ward countered on Twitter “the 220 people I interviewed for the book might beg to disagree.”

Ticking clock may save Trump from impeachment2:22

Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are divided over the question of whether to impeach Republican President Donald Trump. But the question may be overtaken by the 2020 election, which will give voters - rather than lawmakers - the chance to decide whether Trump should stay or go. Zachary Goelman reports.
