President Trump is an outsider in D.C. therefore is choosing to surround himself with people he is close to and trusts. Ivanka Trump is a very competent woman who is serving as an assistant to her father, not Attorney General. An Attorney General has a tremendous amount of power compared to an assistant.
In reality it doesn’t matter who President Trump chooses for his administration because every single appointment has been fiercely fought. The entire Trump administration is under attack by Democrats who simply cannot accept that they are no longer in power. It is time for the Democrats to take a seat while the adults get to work.
