White House senior adviser and first daughter Ivanka Trump wouldn’t commit to staying in her current role in the White House if her father wins reelection in 2020.

In a clip of a new interview with CBS’ “Face The Nation,” Ivanka Trump said her decision would be “driven first and foremost by my kids and their happiness,” but also alluded that there were still some things she’d like to accomplish.

“My decisions will always be flexible enough to ensure that their needs are being considered first and foremost,” she said. “So they will really drive that answer for me.”

“We’ve done so much, but it’s not enough yet,” she continued.

When asked if she’d ever consider running for office, as many have speculated she might do in the future, she demurred: “the politics is truthfully less interesting.”
