She may not be working in the White House, but that doesn't mean Ivanka Trump is staying out of politics. Although she has said she will have no official role in her father's administration, Ivanka Trump has been quietly laying the groundwork for an effort that could make her perhaps the best-connected policy advocate in Washington.

The hair was the giveaway.
The man in the black coat, white shirt and red tie who raised his right hand as if to take the oath of the nation's highest office on Sunday sported a military trim.
