Ivanka Trump is officially a White House employee.

On Wednesday, the businesswoman and daughter to Donald Trump was named as an "assistant to the president," her dad Donald Trump.

"We are pleased that Ivanka Trump has chosen to take this step in her unprecedented role as first daughter and in support of the president,” a spokeswoman for the president told The New York Times. "Ivanka's service as an unpaid employee furthers our commitment to ethics, transparency, and compliance and affords her increased opportunities to lead initiatives driving real policy benefits for the American public that would not have been available to her previously."

Ivanka will join her husband, Jared Kushner, who holds the role of Senior Adviser to the President.

"I have heard the concerns some have with my advising the president in my personal capacity while voluntarily complying with all ethics rules, and I will instead serve as an unpaid employee in the White House office, subject to all of the same rules as other federal employees," Ivanka added. "Throughout this process I have been working closely and in good faith with the White House counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role."

Earlier this month, Ivanka Trump was given an office and clearance to classified information in the White House.
