Ivanka Trump will donate book proceeds to charity

Trump's book, "Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success", a book of advice for women in the workforce, is slated to come out May 2. First ladies, including Hillary Clinton and Barbara Bush, have donated royalties from their books to charity. It will contribute all future royalties that are in excess of the advance to the fund during the period from May 1, 2017, to May 1, 2022, according to the statement.

Ivanka Trump continues to play an outsized role in her father's administration, compared to her stepmother Melania Trump, who only sporadically dips into D.C. At the National Urban League, the money will go to fund a new women's initiative as part of the organization's entrepreneurship center, focusing on giving women mentorship they need to start and grow businesses and achieve economic self-sufficiency.

She will also forgo a book publicity tour to avoid using her government perch to promote her private product, the New York Times reported.

The announcement comes after reports that Trump dined with Chinese President Xi Jinping on April 6, the same day the country approved three trademarks for her fashion company, adding to the slew of questions about the entanglement of her business and role in the White House that have dogged her since her father was elected. In the introduction, Trump writes that she wants to "change the narrative around women and work" and "provide solutions that educate and empower women to be their best selves, both personally and professionally".

Trump's inaugural committee has pledged to donate any excess funds from the record-setting $107 million it raised for the January celebratory events. Her position is unpaid.

The president's eldest daughter will visit Berlin "at the direct invitation" of Chancellor Angela Merkel, the White House noted, to participate in the Women's 20 Summit. The bill, which failed to win adequate congressional support, would have blocked federal payments for a year to Planned Parenthood and could have reduced access to maternity and pediatric care.
