    US President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump, who has recently taken up an unpaid job as a White House adviser, is increasing the staff with officials from former president George W. Bush's administration, media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Apart from Dina Powell, senior counselor to the president for economic initiatives and Ivanka's close aide, who served as as assistant to the president for personnel in Bush's team, Ivanka hired Margaret Spellings, who worked as an education secretary at Bush's office, as a chief of staff, Politico reported.

    Another member of Ivanka's team will be Julie Radford, who was recruited in February by Powell, the newspaper specified.

    On November 8, 2016 Trump won over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the US presidential election. Trump's inauguration was held on January 20.
