Ivanka's schedule has not been made public, so each week, we will do our best to cover the public events and forums she attends, the meetings she has with lawmakers and government officials, and her social media presence.
Sunday, October 21
• Ivanka tweeted about new tax breaks for economically distressed areas.
• Retweeted a New York magazine story about UN ambassador Nikki Haley, who recently stepped down.
• Ivanka changed her Twitter profile pic this week. This one looks happier and more relatable (just like the focus group suggested!).
Monday, October 22
• Posted a love tweet to husband Jared Kushner with a link to his recent interview on CNN about Middle East policy, writing, "I am continuously impressed by his incredible work ethic, laser focus and quiet achievement as he serves our great Country." In that interview, Kushner said, "Anyone with Ivanka would be a power couple. ... Ivanka is brilliant. ... Working together has given me an even greater appreciation for just how effective she is."

• Ivanka condemned the sending of explosive devices to Trump critics like Hillary Clinton, Rep. Maxine Waters, and CNN. Both her father and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, however, strongly implied that the media is to blame, without basis in fact.
• Met with a group of student scientists and engineers to promote STEM education.
Thursday, October 25
• It looks like a romantic week for Ivanka and Jared. She posted a tribute to him on their ninth wedding anniversary.
