Gorelick said Ivanka Trump would follow all the ethics rules that apply to government employees.

Since President Donald Trump took office, his eldest daughter has been an increasingly visible presence in the White House, where her husband Jared Kushner already serves as a senior adviser.

On Friday, she participated in a meeting on vocational training with the president and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

 Ivanka Trump, who recruited the American executives in attendance, guided the discussion. She praised her father’s ‘commitment to creating millions of jobs’ and stressed the need for private investment, noting that ‘ingenuity, creativity often comes from the determination of the private sector.’

The conversation was focused on vocational training and workforce development, not on the thornier issues of international trade.
