Ivanka Trump Plans To Embark On A 'Listening Tour' Of The White House

The 35-year-old will reportedly go on two week-long 'listening tour' around the White House and we hope it involves an umbrella and a tour guide hat.

You know those audio guided tours you pay for at a museum that involve you aimlessly walking around, gawping at paintings and exhibition displays, open-mouthed, while you try to fiddle with the volume control alongside your fellow culture vultures?

Well, if you're planning on visiting the White House anytime soon, don't be surprised if you spot President Donald Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka, dressed in a tour cap with headphones on, listening to the history of her father's official new residence as, according to Politico, the assistant to the President (*cough* nepotism) is reportedly planning to take part in a two week-long 'listening tour' around the White House.

Having previously admitted to not knowing much about politics ('I'm still at the early stages of learning how everything works', she told the New York Times earlier this month), a source has told Politico that the First Daughter will be meeting department heads and cabinet officials in the next fortnight to 'discuss issues like helping working families and supporting women's economic empowerment'.

Perhaps it might have been a good idea for her to do that before antagonising Planned Parenthood.

According to the publication, the mother-of-three will also reportedly meet with Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Scott Pruitt (the guy who once ironically once sued the agency as Oklahoma's attorney general), not once but twice this week 'as part of the administration's process to decide whether to abandon the Paris climate treaty' – a review The Associated Press reports Ivanka has taken on the role to oversee.

Not only that, but the former entrepreneur is also reportedly planning to sit down with Health and Human Services Secretary, Tom Price (who is helping negotiate a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare), Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin and Labour Secretary Alexander Acosta to 'discuss workforce development and SBA Administrator Linda McMahon to discuss entrepreneurship', added the publication.

Sounds like Ivanka will be one busy bee over the next two weeks.

To be fair, it's refreshing to hear Ivanka is wanting to deepen her knowledge of the political workings inside the White House, but news of her increased involvement in Washington D.C comes might not go down too well with her step-mother, Melania, amid rumours she's 'playing First Lady' in her absence (Melania currently lives with her son, Baron, in New York).

Meanwhile, Ivanka's younger sister, Tiffany, has just announced she will be enrolling at Georgetown University Law School this autumn, joining the family in Washington D.C.

Yesterday, the 23-year-old's brother Eric – who received his undergraduate degree from the University – told The Associated Press: 'Georgetown is an incredible school that has played a big role in my personal and professional development.

'I am so proud of Tiffany and all that she has accomplished. She is an amazing young woman, a great sister and has a remarkable future ahead of her,' he added.

Another Trump in Washington D.C.

Let's just call is 'Trumpville' and be done with it.
