Conservative women have increasingly decided to run for office. Carly Fiorina, Elise Stefanik, Kristi Noem, and so many more are just a few examples of women making strides in conservative politics. Now there are rumors swirling about Ivanka Trump potentially entering the arena. The United States has yet to see a female president. Could Ivanka be our first? While it’s no surprise that Ivanka Trump’s past hints that she tends to lean more liberal, she does embody true female empowerment.  Based on what we know about her, there are several qualities of Ivanka Trump that make her a strong candidate for future presidential elections.

1) She is a businesswoman

Like her father Donald J. Trump, Ivanka Marie Trump is no stranger to business. In 2005, she joined the family business. In 2007, she created her own fine jewelry line called “Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry.” Before this, however, she worked for Forest City Enterprises, a company in Cleveland, Ohio specializing in real estate management and development. She also has her own line of clothing and lifestyle brand, Ivanka Trump, found in several major department stores and with the famous #WomenWhoWork campaign. In 2009, she wrote a book titled: “The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life” and is scheduled to publish a second book, “Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success” this May. This is definitely one you will want to get your hands on.

2) She is a mother

You might be wondering how this ties into politics. Think about your own mother for a second. Moms are patient, caring, loving, and they always have our best interest at heart. They want what’s best for us. Ivanka has 3 children with husband Jared Kushner and you can get a glimpse into their personal life by taking a scroll through her Instagram. There is no doubt Ivanka Trump wears many different hats of responsibilities throughout the course of a single day. She still has time to run a business, lifestyle brand, and support her father. She is a true supermom. 



3) She is loyal 

 Ivanka followed in her father’s footsteps by joining the family business. She faced this venture head on and became Executive Vice President of Development & Acquisitions at the Trump Organization. Ivanka was quick to endorse her father at the start of his campaign in 2015. She made several public appearances in support of her father. When her father won in November, she stepped down from her position at the Trump Organization, her own life style brand Ivanka Trump, and relocated her family to D.C. She is expected to take on a role as an unofficial power player at the White House and help address workplace policies for women among other initatives.

4) She is well-rounded

Ivanka has accumulated experience in several industries. Modeling, fashion, business, and now, politics. As a mother, best selling author, entrepreneur, and former business owner, she knows what it takes to juggle several responsibilities at once and does so with class. She knows hard-work, tenacity, and hustle. With the experience she will have gained by working alongside those affiliated with the Trump administration, she is sure to make an even better leader. If any woman is going to do it, Ivanka is definitely well-rounded enough to take this on. 

5) She is human

She’s not perfect, she’s human. Just like the rest of us, she has made mistakes. She has good days and she has bad days.  She has highs and she has lows. She’s relatable to many aspiring girl bosses. While she will not be able to please everyone, it will be interesting to see if she will make a difference in policies under her father, President Trump. Ivanka Trump is the perfect example of an empowered female leader.

Will Ivanka take her talents to the Oval Office and run to be the first female President of the United States? Only time will tell.
