As reported, “In December, Trump joked about naming his daughter for the slot saying, “I’m thinking about making Ivanka vice president.” Trump quickly added, “I’m kidding, I’m kidding.”
While that momentary tease may have been nothing more than that, Campbell also cited, “Earlier last year, Trump gave his thumbs up to a female VP stating, ‘Having a woman as a running mate is certainly a consideration. A very good consideration,’ Trump told the Chicago Sun-Times. ‘It would be something I would strongly consider.'”
Another interesting point is that of all the five Trump children only Ivanka has been chosen to take to the airwaves in a campaign commercial. On Jan. 18, the Trump camp began running a radio ad in Iowa in which she not only sang his praises, but also pointed out that she learned how to conducted business directly from her father.
As it turns out, Ivanka Trump brings more to the table than just good looks. She spent her freshman and sophomore years at Georgetown University, then transferred to the same school her father graduated from, the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
Unlike many matriculating American youth, Trump passed on majoring in Womyn’s Studies or Conversational Apache. Instead, she graduated cum laude with a B.S. degree in Economics.
Another point to consider; if chosen for the Veep slot, she’ll turn 35 just a few days before the general election. If elected, in the event that her father were incapable of fulfilling his presidential duties, Ivanka Marie Trump Kushner could conceivably have a new moniker: Madame President.
Since graduating in 2004, she hasn’t exactly been sitting on her laurels. Ivanka has not only been a successful model and businesswoman she was the 2012 Top Choice Award for Top Business Woman of the Year she’s also been promoted within the family business to be named the Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisitions for The Trump Organization.
For those unfamiliar with what exactly her high stress and no nonsense job entails, perhaps the best example could be from the thriller American Psycho.
The film’s main character, Patrick Bateman, slips when mentioning the Mergers and Acquisitions Department. Instead, he inadvertently referred to that particular division as Murders and Assassinations.
It goes without saying that no one is named as the Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisitions for a multi-billion dollar company unless they;
- Know what they’re doing.
- Has the mettle to make the tough decisions.
Suffice it to say, in the often cutthroat world of high finance, don’t let Ivanka Trump’s stunning good looks fool you. She’s certainly a woman to be reckoned with.
