After that, Ivanka wrote that she began sharing more photos of her family, and people responded well on social media, writing that it was good to see that personal side of Ivanka.

Throughout the book, she mentions many lessons she learned campaigning with her father, including the importance of listening to voices outside one's own "echo chamber".

This slippage not only hurt the popularity of Donald Trump.

Morrison's quote is far from the only one Trump included in her book that lacked context or consent of the people being quoted.

While I have not read the book myself, the internet tells me that she makes broad points about work-life balance, paid maternity leave, and "making a difference", quoting people who nearly certainly would not have wanted to be included like Jane Goodall, Junot Diaz, and Nietzsche. Ivanka in particular passionately urged her father to make a public, profuse apology, but her father reportedly brushed it off.

Trump, who did not take a formal role in the White House until late March, now has a West Wing office and what appears to be a broad portfolio in the administration.

"Portfolio is proud to be publishing WOMEN WHO WORK: Rewriting the Rules for Success by Ivanka Trump", Adrian Zackheim, Portfolio's president and publisher, told ABC News in a statement.

"I'm his daughter", she added of the president.

As we all know, 1997 Seventeen magazine cover girl and Donald Trump's faux feminist Iago Ivanka Trump has a book out, in which she repeats already oft-repeated platitudes about female empowerment in the workplace.

Trump pledged not to promote the book, citing ethics concerns.

She has promised to donate the portion of her advance she has yet to receive for the book and all future royalties to the fund.
