Ivanka Trump is a bit of a paradox. No one is sure of what to make of her. Some think she’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, only appearing to be concerned about moderate issues such as maternity plans and the environment to appease the demographic that is likely to buy her products: college-educated white women. These women, outside coastal regions, voted for Trump Sr. in swathes this election cycle. Some even attributed this unexpected victory on Ivanka, who has positioned herself to represent a more moderate side of Donald Trump, if such a thing could exist.
