Ivanka Trump Approved to Serve on Casino Board

Donald Trump Thinks Ivanka Is Capable and Beautiful

Ivanka Trump has been approved to serve on the board of directors of Trump Entertainment Resorts, which operates three casinos in Atlantic City. Although Donald Trump can be rather pompous, Ivanka seems to be well spoken. She said, "The company is at a point where we need to make a lot of important decisions, and I bring a voice of a different generation, and also a female voice to the debate."

Donald spoke of his happiness about her permanent approval and said of his daughter, "She's a very capable person, aside from being beautiful." Ugh, why did he have to add the part about her looks? He's paying her a compliment but the part about her beauty seems so unnecessary for the occasion. Perhaps it's a sly way of paying himself a compliment about his genes.

I always seems so intelligent, stylish, poised and business-like. I'm glad she got the board position.

Ivanka is also a really sweet and down to earth girl. She was well-liked at Georgetown, despite there being a huge buzz about her being there.

From what I've seen of her, she's a smart, tough, no-nonsense business person. I don't think she's especially attractive, but what father doesn't think their daughter is beautiful?

Donald is proud of his kids, and he has shared things about the way he raised them that makes me think that he is or may be a good parent. However, that being said, he can be SO sexist. He sort of treats women like trophies, it's like women - or "beautiful" women -can't be smart too. He can't seem to separate her looks or the looks of other women with accomplishments. He expects women to conform to his ideal of feminism. Just think, what makes someone like Donald Trump buy the Miss America organization(is that the right term?) He doesn't know how to modernize it or tap into some element of the org. that helped their popularity for so many years. To some extent he thinks women should be like some of the contestants or the image their expected to put out there. I wonder if she would ever say anything to him about this? Statements like that really do undermine women, and the position she is about to take on....

All this talk of how women gets comments about their looks and men don't reminds me of how much I love that Michael Scott from The Office (who is hetero in all other respects) keeps remarking on how hot his co-worker Ryan is. Ah, it would be so fun if men complimented each other's attractive appearance all the time in real life.

I don't think there was anything wrong with the Donald's comment, it just sounds like a proud papa talkin' to me... She does seem to be well-spoken and I'm sure it's hard for her to be taken seriously because of her looks and her father's name.

Ivanka seems like she's very intelligent and she doesn't sacrifice her looks for it. She proves that you can act smart and look good at the same time.

I can't believe she's only 26 years old! I saw her on Celebrity Apprentice last week and I seriously thought she was pushing 30! I only wish I could act as mature as her :)

It's not weird that he thinks she is beautiful, but in that sort of announcement, for a job position, it sort of undermines her. He talks about beauty when he mentions most women. I find it quite sexist. In the ridiculous Rosie feud, how many times did he call her fat and ugly. Call her a b-word if you want, but to attack her looks, and for HIM to attack her looks, like he's so handsome.

She is really intelligent and beautiful ---in truth. And Donald Trump stressing about her beauty is just a normal way of parents being proud of their children's "whole package". I know a lot of parents do say that about their children.

The comment about her looks rubs me the wrong way. It almost dismisses the capable part. I may be over thinking it but it seems women always have their looks added to their intelligence when men do not suffer the same description. I have never heard a male exec. described as smart and handsome but I have read articles about female exec (i.e. Aerin Lauder) that starts a story of her work by discussing her looks. Just my thoughts.

Ivana Trump is the mother and she is also business savvy. I googled. :)

Ivanka is a bit of a snob, but what do you expect when you're the daughter of Donald Trump? Humble she is not, but she is extremely intelligent and knows what she wants. Even if she wasn't Donald's daughter, she would still make her mark on the corporate world. So kudos to her. :)

She has proven to be quite intelligent and capable, the closest to an heir business wise that he, and the mother (not sure which wife?), has produced.

Yeah, I don't understand why a comment about her looks got thrown in. Random!

The beauty part bothers me too. That should have nothing to do with her job performance.

I am super impressed with Ivanka. She is a great role model to young girls.

i don't like how he had to say the beautiful part - but he's a doting father - so you can't blame him. over the years i've really noticed that she is an intelligent woman - so good for her!

I thinkd Donald is very proud 0f his children's accomplishments and of course he will always throw in his daughter's beauty. I would think she got the beauty genes more from her mother's side!!
