Ivanka Trump shares photo of father on Mount Rushmore
Ivanka Trump is sharing a photo of President Trump that shows him smiling alongside the past commanders in chief depicted on Mount Rushmore.
Trump’s 39-year-old daughter, a White House senior adviser, tweeted the photo on Monday.

The snapshot appeared similar to one the president had tweeted in August, when he denied a New York Times report that the White House had reached out to South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) about adding his face to Mount Rushmore.
Trump wrote it was “never suggested,” although “based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!”

When asked by The Hill last year if his head should be carved among the giant granite landmark, Trump replied, “If I answer that question, ‘Yes,’ I will end up with such bad publicity.”
At a 2017 rally, Trump quipped to the crowd, “I’d ask whether or not you think I will someday be on Mount Rushmore.”
