Despite protests and complaints from neighbours, Ivanka Trump 'loves' raising her children in Washington DC
Her residency in Washington D.C. hasn't been without its troubles, but Ivanka Trump said she "really enjoys" raising her children in the US capital.
The first daughter has three children with husband Jared Kushner - Arabella (five), Joseph (three) and Theodore (12 months) - and the family live in the plush Kalorama neighbourhood in a €5.1m home.
Kushner is a senior adviser, while Trump's role is a little more vague and both appointments have been largely critiqued as being in contradiction with anti-nepotism laws.
"I really love living in D.C.," she told CBS in a much-hyped morning interview with Gayle King. "I really enjoy it here with my children."
The businesswoman said she never envisaged leaving New York City, where she called home all her life, but when her father Donald Trump was elected president in November, she moved her eponymous fashion line into a private trust and moved to Washington, where both she and her husband hold roles in the White House.
"My business was there. My life was there, so this is actually an amazing moment in time where I came to Washington and I told Jared with — with my kids, I — I wanna treat it almost like I’m a visitor.
"Every week, I take my children to a different museum or cultural institution. We went to the Supreme Court. We’ve been to five or six museums.
"We went to the monster truck show. So just having real unique experience with my children. Not exactly a cultural experience but Joseph loved it. They don’t have them nearby in in New York because I’ve looked for years. We went in Baltimore."
And the perks of having lawn space aren't wasted on her and her young family.
"I have a backyard with a swing set. As a New Yorker, that doesn’t happen."
