Trump's role in her father's White House has raised eyebrows, with many questioning whether her appointment violated nepotism laws - her husband, Jared Kushner, also snagged a top job with the administration.

First daughter and adviser to the president Ivanka Trump has revealed that she battled postpartum depression following all three of her pregnancies. Symptoms of the condition, which affects some women after giving birth, can include extreme sadness and anxiety. "It was a very challenging, emotional time for me because I felt like I was not living up to my potential as a parent". And I had had such easy pregnancies that in some way the juxtaposition hit me even harder, ' she shared on the popular show.

When Dr. Oz asked what made Trump feel ready to talk now, she said "Well, I didn't know that I was [ready]!"

She added: "Where I disagree with the agenda, I will share it with him quietly".

"It's incredibly important", she said.

Trump acknowledges how hard it can be to admit to yourself and those around you that you're experiencing postpartum depression.


Chrissy, 31, quickly pointed out Ivanka's poor word choice on Twitter, explaining: '"Otherwise" implies you did not like hangin with this baby' - and she wasn't the only one to mock the first daughter for her embarrassing error.

"I've been there, '" Dr. Oz. said on Fox News. "It's been enormously helpful to me". "And I helped create her. Ivanka". Over a period of two decades, he frequently referred to her beauty, called her "voluptuous" and suggested he might date her if she was not his daughter.

She adds she is "deeply passionate" about fueling the growth of women entrepreneurs and supporting America's working families.

Norman Rowe, an Upper East Side plastic surgeon, said that since the 2016 Republican primaries he had operated on one woman a week willing to spend at least $37,400 on temporary fillers and Botox to get Ms Trump's appearance.

"We can not stand by in silence", Trump said, referring to human trafficking as "the greatest human rights issue of our time". She responded by saying that her critics misunderstand her role in the White House.
