Report: Ivanka Trump will not have a role in Trump administration, Kushner will be senior adviser


President-elect Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner will take on the role of a senior White House adviser, according to an announcement by Trump's team on Monday.

Trump said in a statement, "Jared has been a tremendous asset and trusted advisor throughout the campaign and transition and I am proud to have him in a key leadership role in my administration."

While Trump's daughter Ivanka had also been rumored to take on a formal role in her father's administration, that doesn't appear to be the case for now.

WUSA noted, "The realtor...described the home as a six-bedroom, single-family home. The home sold on Dec. 22 for a little more than $5 million."
