While their somewhat peculiar relationship in public has raised many eyebrows, the eldest daughter of the president insists that he isn't always right — and often needs to be told so.
Despite their differences, however, Ivanka admitted she would never speak out in public against him as she is committed to staying in the White House team.
In an interview with the Financial Times, the 35-year-old businesswoman answered critics who have accused her of selling out her liberal values.
"To voice dissent publicly would mean I'm not part of the team. When you're part of a team, you're part of a team. That doesn't mean everyone in the White House has homogeneous views — we don't and I think that's healthy — but that doesn't mean we're publicly undermining (each other) and this administration."
She has also been rebuked by Hillary Clinton, Mr. Trump's Democratic rival in the 2016 presidential election, who described her as an accomplice to her father's policies.
Ms. Trump, married to Jared Kushner, the president's senior adviser, did speak out once against her father when she attacked hate-based groups in a tweet after white nationalists marched in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12.

She revealed how her father is open to varying opinions. "I think it benefits the president to be able to hear from people who both agree and disagree with him on any given issue. And then, ultimately, the president makes his own decision."
