The President of the United States has asked his daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump to attend the Olympic closing ceremony as part of a U.S. delegation.
President Trump personally selected the delegation to represent America at the Pyeongchang Olympic winter games. Last week, Ivanka Trump tweeted she was preparing for the upcoming Winter Olympics and now her participation is confirmed.
