Donald Trump may have been making daily headlines since he started his term as 45th President of the United States, but the extended members of the Trump clan have also been causing controversies of their own.

People have speculated about why Melania doesn't share a bed with her husband, whether or not Donald made her agree to a pre-baby body 'contract', and what the couple's body language is trying to tell us.

But she isn't the only woman in the Trump camp that has been under the spotlight since Donald came to power. His eldest daughter, Ivanka, has courted controversy - from her outfit choices in Saudi Arabia, to claims she has been 'complicit' in her father's presidency.

However, the 35 year-old Assistant to the President has spoken out to say that actually she 'tries to stay out of politics.' Sorry - what?

Ivanka was given the job in the White House shortly after her dad Donald was elected, but it seems that she's not all that fussed about getting involved with, you know, any of the political aspects of her job.

During an interview of Fox & Friends, Ivanka said: 'I try to stay out of politics. I - his political instincts are phenomenal. He did something that no one could have imagined he'd be able to accomplish.

'There were very few who thought, early on. I feel blessed to have been part of the ride from day one and before. But he did something pretty remarkable. But I don't profess to be a political savant, so I leave the politics to other people.'
