First daughter of US President, Ivanka Trump on Thursday led a roundtable about human trafficking with members of Congress at the White House, while her father Donald Trump delivered a commencement address to cadets graduating from the US Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut. The meeting, attended by several Democrats and Republicans – including House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy – seems to be another sign of Ms Trump’s quickly growing role in the administration. According to the White House pool report, Mr Trump’s eldest daughter spoke for two minutes about the Trump administration's efforts to combat human trafficking in the US and worldwide. “She noted that next week is Combatting Trafficking and Child Protection Week in Congress, during which lawmakers will present legislation tailored to this issue,” the report said. White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said the roundtable was a follow-up discussion to a meeting in February between President Trump, Ms Trump and representatives from several organisations that deal with human trafficking.
