Ivanka Trump yields great power within her father’s White House, but her official corporate account on Twitter is a reminder the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

@IvankaTrumpHQ Fun question: how many trumps have ever served in the military? I'm reading family bio & can't find any. Zero. Not one.
