President-elect Donald Trump is considering giving his daughter Ivanka the First Lady role for at least a year as his wife, Melania, stays on in New York to see their youngest son finish elementary school.
Slovenian-born Melania is reportedly keen to stay in New York until 10-year-old Barron finishes in final year at a prestigious private elementary school in the city.
Ivanka is currently one of several Vice Presidents at the Trump Corporation but has been reportedly seeking to unwind herself from that role ahead of her father’s inauguration as the 45th President on January 20.
The last President to move into the White House without a First Lady was Grover Cleveland, who was a bachelor until his marriage in 1886.
Heat Street report that Ivanka, who played a key role in his campaign, may be angling to play the role of the ceremonial sidekick.
