    Donald Trump’s relationship with his family has long been a talking point, with the president known to have a soft spot for his oldest daughter, Ivanka Trump.

    Donald and Ivanka’s relationship caused controversy when the 36-year-old former TV personality and socialite was made Assistant to the President – a highly-coveted position – and given a West Wing office, classified information clearance and a government-issued phone,

    Before Ivanka became a White House Advisor, she was trying to pursue a career in modelling, something that Emily Jane Fox has delved into in her new book about the family, Born Trump.

    According to Fox, Donald Trump had some suggestions for how Ivanka could successfully venture into the world of modelling, and it’s enough to make anyone uncomfortable.

    ‘When his friend confronted him about it, he denied that [Ivanka] was getting implants,’ Fox continued, going on to explain that ‘at the end of the call, [Donald Trump] asked, “Why not, though?”’

    Donald Trump has yet to comment on the situation, but knowing him, we’re sure there will be some Tweets later.
