*It looks like Michelle Obama’s First Lady office in the White House will have a different title when the incoming administration takes over in January.
According to CNN, Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, will get a White House office in an area typically reserved for the first lady. However, her new official title has yet to be announced by the Trump transition team.

The actual incoming first lady, Melania Trump, will reportedly stay in New York City with her son Barron while he finishes the school year.
According to CNN’s Sara Murray, who covered President-elect Donald Trump on the campaign trail, Ivanka will set up shop in the first lady’s office digs.

Some have speculated that Ivanka, one of the president-elect’s daughters, will fill a role similar to first lady’s during her father’s presidency. The New York Times reported this month that she may be one of the most powerful first daughters in history.
In early December, she met with former Vice President Al Gore, a prominent climate change activist, at Trump Tower in New York City. The first daughter reportedly plans to make global warming one of her main issues.
Trump has said he’d “love” to have Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, involved in his administration.
“If you look at Ivanka — she’s so strongly, as you know, into the women’s issues and childcare, … nobody could do better than her,” Trump said earlier this month.
