There’s a new Trump book in the works, but this one isn’t being written by The Donald
Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, will release her second book next year, the Associated Press reports.
The book is titled “Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules of Success” and sounds not unlike an Ivanka Trump version of Sheryl Sandberg’s bestselling book “Lean In.”
Trump explained the genesis of her new book in a message on her website. “Our site is home to inspiring thought leaders, smart content and solution-oriented tips curated for women who work,” she wrote. “Your overwhelming support and feedback has helped shaped the #WomenWhoWork dialogue into what it’s become — a movement that’s inspiring and empowering women to create the lives they want to live.”
The book will be published by Portfolio, an imprint of the Penguin Group that specializes in business titles.
“Today’s generation of working women is the first to be able to unabashedly embrace the fact that our lives are multidimensional,” Trump said in a release about her book. “We’re deeply invested in our careers, but they don’t solely define us. For us, it’s about working smarter, not harder; integrating our personal passions and priorities with our professional goals in order to architect lives we love.”
Ivanka Trump is an executive vice president at the Trump Organization, Donald Trump’s New York-based holding company. Her brothers Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. also serve as executive vice presidents at the conglomerate.
In addition to her work with the Trump Organization, she has also lent her name to lines of jewelry, purses and shoes. She has been a vocal supporter of her father’s presidential run (despite her longtime friendship with Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton).
Trump’s previous book, “The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life,” was released in 2009. The book featured a blurb from Anna Wintour, the editor in chief of Vogue magazine and a supporter of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy.
While there’s no telling what future projects Trump has in mind, some have speculated that she could follow her father into politics, with Washington Post writer Philip Bump even suggesting that she join Donald on the Republican ticket as his running mate.
“The beauty of this entire thing is that, for once, it’s not totally outside the realm of possibility,” Bump wrote. “Donald Trump — who has even mentioned choosing his daughter as his running mate in the past — is as likely to pick Ivanka as he is Mitt Romney, Bob Corker, Shaquille O’Neal or the skeleton of Betsy Ross.”
“Women Who Work” is scheduled for release on March 7, 2017, about six weeks after the inauguration of the next president.
