    Donald Trump has previously referred to his daughter Ivanka and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as the “Beauty and the Beast”, something which was seemingly appreciated by both, who are now heading to the state of Kansas together.

    US First Daughter Ivanka Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo set off to Wichita together this week, where they will visit the WSU Tech National Centre for Aviation Training in a bid to promote the Trump administration's "Pledge to America's Workers" policy.

    ​The news was shared by Ivanka Trump on her Twitter account, which immediately provoked a wave of related jokes, as the president’s daughter announced that the trip would include a meeting with students from the aviation industry.

    Donald Trump previously referred to the unexpected duo comprised of his 37-year-old married daughter, who serves as his senior advisor, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as the “Beauty and the Beast” during a gathering of Air Force personnel at the Osan Air Base in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, where the two also travelled together, alongside the US president.

    ​Many, including Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have previously raised concerns over the US presidential daughter's heavy involvement in US politics, despite lacking qualifications. However, neither Donald Trump nor Ivanka seemed to be bothered by the worries, as the US first daughter has continued to participate in state events together with other senior White House political staffers.
