Ivanka Trump stole the show on Thursday when she wore a 'Jackie Kennedy blue' dress for interviews in the White House gardens. The first daughter is promoting a new job training program.
The program is designed to expand apprenticeships and career training programs to help Americans keep up with the rapidly changing economy. Ivanka's glamorous pale blue shirt dress was designed to impress.
The dress featured a belt, buttons all the way up the front of the dress, and a collar. But it's the initiative sleeves that catch the eye. They are slit up the sleeve and make a cape in the back.
Trump, 36, sat down for an interview with Joe Kernen on CNBC's 'Squawk Box' at the White House on Thursday morning to discuss the initiative. President Trump signed an executive order on the initiative later in the day.
Ivanka paired her demure dress with matching robin's-egg blue pumps, and she wore her long blonde hair straight with a defined center part.
For the interview, Ivanka was joined by Robert Felder, an 18-year-old graduate of Syracuse's Institute of Technology at Central High School. When he graduated, he had already earned 28 college credits.
Felder shared that he's part of the first graduating class from P-Tech. He'll start at Alfred University in New York this fall as a mechanical engineering major
went on to say that he was a part of the first class from the P-Tech program and graduated with 28 credits to go towards his college degree. Robert will attend Alfred University in New York this fall as a mechanical engineering major.
"It's amazing," Ivanka said of his story.
The White House advisor added, "We also have to be thinking about the mid-to late-career worker, who needs to be re-trained and re-skilled. As a country, by and large, all investment in education stops at the age of 25, and that doesn't work in such a fast-changing, increasingly digital economy."
To help with that retraining, President Trump has more than 15 companies and associations that will sign the 'Pledge to America's Workers' on Thursday during the debut of the initiative.
"This starts today," said Trump's oldest daughter, "but its going to continue for the months and years to come because ultimately we want businesses to step up to the plate and recognize that the most important role they can play is helping to promote and advance their own forces and therefore the country as a whole."
Later in the afternoon, Ivanka promoted the initiative again. She addressed the attendees at the Pledge to America's Workers event, which was hosted by her father at the White House.
Yesterday, Ivanka's stepmother, First Lady Melania Trump, looked beautiful but somber in a black suit. She and President Trump had just flown to meet the family of the secret service agent who passed away in Scotland,
