Ivanka Trump, who has kept a low profile since moving her family to Washington, is beginning a quiet push on the same women’s economic empowerment agenda she advocated on the campaign trail last year.
On Thursday night, President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter hosted a dinner party with a group of CEOs at her new Kalorama home—the stated purpose, according to two attendees, was for Ivanka Trump to solicit ideas on how to promote women in the workforce and fight for issues like paid maternity leave.
The working dinner party marked Ivanka Trump’s first step toward trying to influence policy in her father’s administration. Trump’s most high-profile first daughter stepped down from her executive position at the Trump Organization, and separated from her eponymous fashion line last month, to serve as an outside support system for her father and her husband, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner. But Thursday night’s dinner marked Ivanka Trump’s foray into politics on her own, since moving to the nation’s capital.
Attending the Thursday night dinner was Walmart CEO Doug McMillon; General Motors CEO Mary Barra; Ernst & Young CEO Mark Weinberger; Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky; investment banker Adebayo Ogunlesi; JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon; Trump’s head of the National Economic Council, Gary Cohn; and Dina Powell, the former Goldman Sachs partner who recently joined the administration to advise Ivanka Trump and Kushner.
The 50 fatalities at Pulse are considerably more than the 33 victims killed during the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007, or the 28 fatalities in the Newtown, Conn., school shooting in 2012. The 53 people wounded are also more than the number wounded in any other shooting, with the exception of the Aurora theater shooting in 2012, in which 58 were injured.
Tasting Evil Twin Brewing’s Even More Jesus
Pours like a moonless night.
Fine, thick head, like hot cocoa from a machine.
Roasty, toasty, nose.
Thick mouthfeel, chocolate, coffee, sharp bitterness, clean finish.
