In an interview with the Atlantic published on Friday, Trump was apparently quite eager to sing his daughter's praises: the author writes that she requested an interview with Ivanka herself and was turned down, but instead got a call that the president wanted to talk to her.

"I've seen her under tremendous stress and pressure", Trump said.

"I don't even want to pronounce her name".

To that end, though, a source "close to Ivanka" also told The Atlantic that the two share a "desire to be mutually respectful", but added that their relationship is certainly not "affectionate".
