    Ivanka Trump will become an official White House employee. The eldest daughter of President Donald Trump will serve as Assistant to the President, the White House announced Wednesday. (Published Tuesday, April 18, 2017)

    Scarlett Johansson says Ivanka Trump could have a "big impact" by being vocal, and she's baffled by the first daughter's reluctance to take a public stance on controversial issues related to her father's administration. 

    Johansson, speaking at the Women in the World summit in New York Thursday, referenced an interview Trump gave with CBS News earlier this week in which the first daughter suggested that she voices disagreement to her father "quietly and directly and candidly." 

    Johansson portrayed the first daughter in a recent "Saturday Night Live" sketch that showed Trump pitching a perfume called "Complicit."

    Trump answered the notion that she's complicit in her father's policies by telling CBS, "If being complicit is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I'm complicit."
