Ivanka Trump will donate book proceeds to charity

AP FACT CHECK Trump ignores 100-day high achievers

"In light of government ethics rules, I want to be clear that this book is a personal project", Ivanka Trump said.

Trump said to comply with ethics rules she will not promote her book and said that she wrote it before her father was elected.

Trump also said she will not do any publicity for the book, "out of an abundance of caution and to avoid the appearance of using my official role" to promote it.

Trump is establishing a charitable fund to donate proceeds from her upcoming book to charity, with the first grants going to the National Urban League and Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Ivanka Trump's second self-help book, Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules of Success, would normally be promoted through a book tour, a series of interviews where she could undoubtedly cross-promote her eponymous clothing line by looking unbelievable in everything, as well as book signings for fans of her popular lifestyle brand. The first grants, worth $100,000 each, will support an Urban League program for entrepreneurs, and a Boys & Girls Clubs' program on science, technology, engineering and math for girls and underrepresented youth.

It's possible the famous first daughter is a little gun shy when it comes to questions of ethics after questions were raised about three of her brand trademarks which were miraculously approved in China - right before she had dinner with her father and Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago, no less.


"It is my honest hope that "Women Who Work" serves as a powerful resource and that the book proceeds further benefit women and girls through the great work of the National Urban League and Boys & Girls Clubs of America", she wrote.

"Ivanka Trump had previously pushed back the publication date of her book from March to May, citing momentous changes in her life".

The fund will receive a minimum of $425,000, which is the unpaid portion of Trump's advance minus expenses.

"Women who Work" will be released on May 2 and is already available on Amazon for pre-order.

And since Ivanka solidified her role in her father's administration by taking an office in the West Wing, there have been more calls for Ivanka to separate herself from her business ventures.

Ivanka Trump's first book, The Trump Card: Playing To Win In Work And Life, made it on to The New York Times bestsellers list.
