GOP Rep. says Ivanka Trump is an exception, shouldn't have to report to chief of staff

Will Ivanka Trump have to go through new White House chief of staff John Kelly to speak to her father? One GOP rep thinks she shouldn't have to.

Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York told MSNBC Tuesday, "I would imagine there are a few different people, obviously Ivanka included, who are going to continue to have conversations and access to the president."

This after the White House announced last week that "General Kelly has the full authority to operate within the White House and all staff will report to him."

Ivanka Trump tweeted this photo of Kelly's swearing in with the caption, "Looking forward to serving alongside John Kelly as we work for the American people."

Whatever channels of communication apply to the first daughter, whose official title is advisor to the president, Zeldin says to make it work, communication is key.

"It's just really important to have good communication with the chief of staff, because you don't want things going in two different directions," Zeldin added.
