White House employees call Ivanka Trump “princess royal”, according to Vanity Fair. This is because of her father’s high position and her own political career, despite her lack of experience. However, they apparently never say this to her face.
One particular event that allegedly infuriated some aides was when the President asked his daughter to sit in for him at G20 meeting last year in Hamburg, Germany.
Whilst it is not usual for a leader to sometimes send a delegate in their place, his choice of delegate was seen by many as nepotistic.
Former US ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul said in response to a tweet with a photo of Ivanka at the meeting: “This is strange. Very strange.”
A former Trump advisor allegedly said to Vanity Fair: “Excuse me. This is not a royal family, and she’s not the princess royal.”
Many advisors also apparently dislike Ivanka and Jared due to their behaviour in Washington, acting like they are “special”.
A ‘Washington veteran’ reportedly said: “What is off-putting about them is they do not grasp their essential irrelevance. They think they are special.”
Ivanka has also allegedly been known to act rudely to staff members.
A former advisor said: “She tries to charm you at first, and then there’ll be a cutting remark in front of her father.”
She is also said to be especially “cold” to staffs who are “not in favour of the President”.
However, White House staff are very much endeared to Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, according to Business Insider.
Apparently, a “member of the permanent White House staff instantly adored her”.
Former staffers reportedly said of the First Lady that “it was her thoughtful, everyday interactions with them that made her stand out among other first families.”
