Kleptocracy?: How Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner Personally Profit from Their Roles in the White House
AYLE KING: What have you done with your business?
IVANKA TRUMP: I have no involvement with any of it. And I felt like proximity to my father and to the White House and with my husband taking such an influential role in the administration, I didn’t want to also be running a business. So, I put it into trust. I have independent trustees. I have no involvement in its management, in its oversight, in its strategic decision-making.
GAYLE KING: But the trustees are family members, right? Your brother-in-law and your sister-in-law?
IVANKA TRUMP: They are.
GAYLE KING: So, from a—
IVANKA TRUMP: But they’re completely independent, and I’m transparent about that.
GAYLE KING: Can you see, from the public point of view—yes, you put it in trust, but it’s family members—they’re thinking, "Well, is she really not involved?" Do you really not get on the phone and say, "What’s going on?" Do you have no involvement whatsoever?

2. Wished she had been asked about the Baku hotel...
which is now known to be part of money laundering scheme .
Trump Hotel in Baku Partnered With ‘Notoriously Corrupt’ Oligarch Family With Ties to Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps
The Trump Organization’s work to build and manage a hotel in Azerbaijan in partnership with corrupt oligarchs, themselves apparently linked to individuals tight with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.
A lengthy new investigative story published by Adam Davidson in the New Yorker reveals that Donald Trump’s business dealings in Azerbaijan likely violated the Foreign and Corrupt Practices Act, and may have served as a conduit for money-laundering and other underhanded activities undertaken by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/3/6/14827604/trump-tower-baku
In my readings about this Baku hotel, Ivanka is reported to go there once a month to "supervise" on details, even tho the hotel is located in a backwards area when no tourists are likely to even find it,
and roads to it are not completed, plus a host of other alarm-bells-going-off details.
It really seems more likely than not that the Trump family is a criminal family enterprise.
