Ivanka Trump isn’t afraid to show off her baby bump — or her political ambitions.
“It’s not something I’ve ever been inclined to do, but I’m 34, so who knows?” The Donald’s daughter tells February’s Town & Country magazine of launching a political bid of her own. “At this point, I would never even contemplate it, but that doesn’t mean that when I’m 50 I won’t have a change of heart.”
The businesswoman, who is pregnant with her third child, tells the magazine that despite what critics say, her dad is “one of the great advocates for women.”
“He 100 percent believes in equality of gender,” she says. “He has been a great example to me my whole life [and has] confidence in women to do any job that a man can do, and my whole life has been proof of that.
“If he didn’t feel that women were as competent as men, I would be relegated to some role subordinate to my brothers,” adds Ivanka, who is an executive vice president at the Trump Organization.
Describing how she balances work with motherhood, she says it is all about compromise.
“I abhor this question of ‘having it all,’ ” says Ivanka, who is married to real-estate scion Jared Kushner.
“I don’t do everything. I wouldn’t be able to do what I do professionally if I did. I don’t go to the afternoon classes. I don’t take my son to the sports play group in the middle of the day.”
“For some people, that’s a compromise they aren’t willing to make, and I respect that.”
