Ivanka and Jared – the power couple under Trump

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are behind many of Trump’s important decisions.

Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are just newcomers to Washington, but they have already exerted significant influence on some of Trump’s policies, according to news.com.au.

In fact, they are one of the most powerful couples in the world.

Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, has a senior role at the White House.

Three weeks ago, the new administration announced a draft presidential executive order, outlining a plan to revoke regulations protecting the gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

The draft decree, titled `Establishment of an initiative on respect for religious freedom`, will impact the rights of women and people of the LGBT community in the workplace, in matters of marriage,

However, not long after this document leaked, the White House issued a statement pledging to retain regulations protecting the LGBT community applied under the Obama administration.

Close sources say that Ivanka and her husband are behind Trump’s decision to withdraw the draft decree, according to Politico.

The two had been active in supporting gay rights and both also participated in progressive ideological groups in New York.

According to the New York Times, Trump has an inconsistent stance on these issues.

But now, he needs to please the conservatives who supported him in the presidential election, so he must lean toward conservative ideology.

Trump appeared very optimistic when his son-in-law set foot in the White House.

`Kushner seems unable to control either his father-in-law or the people around him,` a source told Vanity Fair.

At Kushner’s suggestion, Mr. Nieto agreed to fly to Washington to discuss the issues he argued with Mr. Trump.
