Ivanka Trump will donate book proceeds to charityPor Orquidea Banes Abr 21, 2017
She noted that the first two organizations to receive funds from the charitable organization would be The National Urban League and the Boys & Girls Club of America (each will receive $100,000).
As president, Trump has said he'll donate his $400,000 salary to charity.
Ivanka Trump's second self-help book, Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules of Success, would normally be promoted through a book tour, a series of interviews where she could undoubtedly cross-promote her eponymous clothing line by looking fantastic in everything, as well as book signings for fans of her popular lifestyle brand. It will contribute all future royalties that are in excess of the advance to the fund during the period from May 1, 2017, to May 1, 2022, according to the statement.
"It is my honest hope that "Women Who Work" serves as a powerful resource and that the book proceeds further benefit women and girls through the great work of the National Urban League and Boys & Girls Clubs of America", she wrote. "I wrote it at a different time in my life, from the perspective of an executive and an entrepreneur, and the manuscript was completed before the election last November", the First Daughter wrote.
The White House said Ivanka planned to give up some income, minimize certain assets, and promised she will recuse herself from policy matters that may pose conflict of interest concerns. It's unclear where the rest will go. She is now an official, unpaid federal employee - a role she took after Democratic lawmakers said in March that her previously unspecified position raised questions about how she'd avoid conflicts.
Ivanka Trump will participate in a panel discussion on women's economic empowerment during an official visit to Germany next week. Next week, she'll travel to Berlin at the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel for a women-focused effort within the Group of 20 major economic powers. This decision gets out ahead of what could be an issue-a rarity in this White House-and supports causes that she has said she will champion in her White House role.
In a recent interview with CBS, Ivanka Trump pushed back against the idea that she did not challenge her father, saying that "where I disagree with my father, he knows it, and I express myself with total candor".
