The New Yorker’s Jia Tolentino has done every one of us the great administration of leafing through Ivanka Trump’s The Trump Card, a 2009 self improvement guide that permits perusers to see how to excel in existence with simply a tycoon father and a world-popular surname.
Tolentino’s story is loaded with eyebrow-raising tales straight from the mouth, or pen, or portable PC, or professional writer, of an Ivanka Trump who, upon the arrival of the book’s discharge, was weeks from turning 28 years of age.
