Ivanka Trump plans to occupy the space in the White House that has previously been reserved for the first lady, a new report claims.
CNN reported Wednesday that president-elect Donald Trump’s daughter will take over the office space that is typically used by the first lady, something the Trump team has since called “false.” (RELATED: The One Photo From Ivanka Trump’s Meeting With Al Gore Today)

Another report has claimed the next first daughter will work in the Trump administration. She was also seen taking meetings alongside her father when he met with former Vice President Al Gore to allegedly discuss climate change, last week.
In addition, CNN correspondent Cristina Alesci reported last week, “Ivanka may leave the Trump organization to take some kind of role in the administration. Unclear what that is right now.”
Before the election the president-elect’s daughter said that she will have no role in the administration except as his daughter.”
“No, I don’t intend to be part of the government,” Trump responded during an interview with Fast Company.
It has also been reported that she and her husband have been house hunting in Washington D.C., but there has been no official report from the Trump team.
After the election, Melania Trump said she would not be moving to the White House in January and instead would stay in New York City until her son Barron has finished his school year.
