ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Senior Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway told reporters in Trump Tower on Thursday that the incoming administration would benefit "tremendously" from contributions from Jared and Ivanka. Reports suggested the Jared Kushner and Trump's daughter Ivanka may play a role in the Trump administration. "Reports are that Ivanka is moving to DC and possibly getting space in the White House. Are those reports true? Do you have anything to add to those reports," a reporter asked Conway. "Ivanka and Jared will make their own announcement and decision in due course. I think that we would benefit tremendously by having them inside the administration if in fact that can happen. Ivanka is incredibly committed to women in the workplace, women in the economy, women entrepreneurs. She has had a wonderful platform during the campaign. Certainly she and her father announced our childcare plan. I think it was a big highlight of our campaign, our outreach to women particularly," Conway said. CNN on Thursday that Ivanka would be assigned duties akin to that of a first lady, citing a source familiar with the matter. President-elect Donald Trump will be sworn in as 45th U.S. president on January 20.
