Ivanka Trump held her own summit with top business executives at a dinner party at her new Washington home just hours before her father was to sit down with titans of commerce, according to a report.
Trump’s daughter, who has already been taking on some ceremonial roles by accompanying her father to see the return of a fallen Navy Seal, also is carving out a role as a liaison to some of the nation’s most powerful business leaders.
Attending the dinner party at her home in D.C.’s tony Kalorama neighborhood were JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, General Motors CEO Mary Barra, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon;Ernst & Young CEO Mark Weinberger, Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky.
Also attending, according to a Politico report on the dinner, were investment banker Adebayo Ogunlesi; Gary Cohn, the head of Trump’s National Economic Council, and former Goldman Sachs partner Dina Powell, an advisor to Ivanka Trump and her powerhouse husband Jared Kushner.
Representatives for Ivanka Trump didn’t confirm details of the dinner or its occurrence after multiple contacts from DailyMail.com.
Ivanka Trump reportedly hosted a dinner party at her Kalorama home to brainstorm ideas for paid maternity leave and matters of women in the workforce.
The purpose of the meeting, attendees told the publication, was for Trump to brainstorm ideas for paid maternity leave and matters of women in the workforce.
Trump herself relinquished her executive role in the Trump Organization in order to move to Washington to assist with her father’s administration. Her own business suffered a setback Thursday when Nordstrom stores removed her clothing line from its stores. Her line has been the subject of a boycott movement following her father’s comments caught on the infamous ‘p****’ tape.
Nordstrom denied partisanship in the decision to drop Trump’s brand, insisting the move was made as a result of poor sales months after it was hit by a grassroots boycott started by a marketing specialist and a grandmother.
The Grab Your Wallet campaign was launched on October 11 by Shannon Coulter and Sue Atencio after they ‘simultaneously realized they could no longer in good conscience shop at retailers that do business with the Trump family’.
The campaign compiled a list of businesses that sell Trump family goods. The extensive list also includes companies that advertise on Celebrity Apprentice or executives that have raised money for President Donald Trump.
She was also not listed on Nordstrom’s master list of brands available and the page that previously featured items from her brand was empty. Above Ivanka is pictured in 2011 at a Nordstrom in California presenting the launch of her footwear collection

News of the high-powered dinner party only further cements Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s role as the ultimate power couple. Trump has tasked Kushner, one of his closest advisors during the campaign and now a White House advisor, with overseeing such wide-ranging topics as Middle East peace efforts to relations with key allies. He is on hand in the oval office frequently when Trump makes statements.
