During an interview with The Atlantic for a new in-depth piece on Ivanka Trump's transition from NY high society to "playing government" in the White House - as former Chief of Staff John Kelly referred to her role in the administration - Trump praised Ivanka Trump as his "heir apparent", in The Atlantic's words.

"She kind of regrouped after that and said to herself, 'OK, I'm going to focus on a very specific set of uncontroversial issues and that way if people want to attack me, I can say that this is what I've worked on, you can judge me based on that, '" Platt said.

"But she would've been incredible", he added. "She would've been great at that because she's very good with numbers". "But I don't profess to be a political savant", she said at the time.
