Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner made a deal for the daughter of President Donald Trump to become the first female head of state, according to Michael Wolff's new book "Fire and Fury."
The book, written by the Hollywood Reporter contributing editor and former White House strategist, is being labeled as a tell-all of his time inside the White House under President Trump. It features over 200 interviews with the president and key players in his administration, according to The Guardian.
Peter Alexander, national correspondent for NBC News, tweeted this detail in a thread Wednesday afternoon, stating, "NEW: ”Jared & Ivanka had made an earnest deal between themselves: if sometime in the future the time came, she’d be the one to run for president (or the first one of them to take the shot)..."
"Fire and Fury" also highlights the many disagreements between Steve Bannon, former White House strategist, and “Javanka” – Bannon’s nickname for Ivanka and her husband.
“It is a war between the Jews and non-Jews,” Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State, is quoted saying.
Bannon has been vocal about his distaste for the couple. In a December Vanity Fair interview, he said, “The railhead of all bad decisions is the same railhead: Javanka."
In the interview, Bannon also recalled an August Oval Office meeting prior to his firing, where he referred to Ivanka as “the queen of leaks,” to which she responded, “You’re a fucking liar!”
The book quotes Bannon frequently. He describes the infamous Trump Tower meeting during the 2016 election with Donald Trump Jr. and a group of Russian officials as "treasonous."
"The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor – with no lawyers," Bannon says in the book.
"They're going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV," he continues.
Ivanka Trump has never run for office of any kind. In October, her mother, Ivana Trump, wrote about her daughter’s presidential ambitions in her book “Raising Trump,” suggesting Ivanka could run “maybe in fifteen years.”
Ivanka has not confirmed nor denied the remark. When asked about her potential political ambitions in a 2016 Cosmopolitan interview, Ivanka responded, "I have learned in life to never say never! It is too limiting!”
Donald Trump ran for president against Democrat Hillary Clinton, the first woman to become the presidential nominee for a major political party in the U.S. Ivanka Trump is the president's oldest daughter and his close adviser.
