The former First Daughter has got a “questionable past” overshadowing a potential career in politics, according to a commentator. Speaking to news.com.au, Spencer Critchley, a former communications consultant for Barack Obama’s campaigns, said Ms Trump’s exploits suggest she could be following in her father’s footsteps soon.
Some of these actions include “ostentatiously virtuous positions on non-controversial topics like motherhood or being kind to each other.”
One of Ms Trump’s most harshly criticised moments during her time as a senior advisor to President Trump was her attendance to the 2019 G20 summit as part of her father’s delegation despite having no official ambassador credentials.
Mr Critchley said: “It seems clear with the hints she’s dropped over the years that she thinks [running for office] is the logical next step.
“But Ivanka is obviously completely unqualified in terms of her experience but also in terms of her character – in many ways she’s similar to her father and she has certainly had some very shady dealings.
“Ivanka, from the beginning and even before the Trump administration, has been involved in very questionable stuff.”
The expert highlighted the fact Mr Trump ensured Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner security clearances following FBI background checks after intelligence officials and White House staff warned against such actions.
The former First Daughter made her first public appearance since leaving the White House last week, delivering food boxes with local faith leaders in Florida.
Ms Trump, who is now based in Florida, has been delivering food parcels to locals alongside Apopka Pastor and former US President Donald Trump’s spiritual adviser, Paula White.
