Ricki Seidman

I know a number of people who have said that anything that helps Trump in any way is heretical to my values. But I don't think personalizing the polarization has any value. If you look at it just politically, then let [Kushner and Ivanka Trump] sink. But if you care about the country, look at what Mark Warner and others are doing to bring people together.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Go buy Ivanka's stuff is what I would tell you, I hate shopping and I'm going to go get some for myself today. It's a wonderful [clothing] line, I own some of it, I fully–I'm going to give a free commercial here: Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.feedback

Abigail Klem

After discussions with our licensee, we have determined that Ivanka Trump brand products have not been produced at the factory in question since March. Our licensee works with many footwear production factories and all factories are required to operate within strict social compliance regulations.feedback

Lauren Silva Laughlin - Breakingviews

The weakened share price helps the numbers add up for the Nordstrom family and any partners they bring in. There is zero chance that the Choice Act survives.feedback

Joel Bines

This is a clear signal that the changes that retailers need to make are much more extensive and expensive than public shareholders have the appetite for.feedback

Jim Cramer

I think it's silly that it went down at all. If Nordstrom's going to go private, and I think it will, it will fetch a much higher price. I bet the company will indeed go for sale.feedback

Jim Cramer

Of course, bounce' is the operative term for the banks, the oils and the retailers. These are trades, people, as part of a difficult rotation spurred by a higher Fed funds, the potential for a Nordstrom buyout, and oil plumbing for a bottom. The moves don't have staying power, although I repeat that I think that Nordstrom's stock is too low and should be bought here, and that some of the banks and oil stocks have finally gotten too cheap to ignore.feedback

Jim Cramer

Taking itself private might allow Nordstrom to do even more, and then perhaps one day when the prospects for brick and mortar seem less grim, the company can come public again at a big profit to the new owners.feedback

Jim Cramer

Today's move is the equivalent of the buyers saying Trump's tax cuts, they're finished. Forget about them. So we've got to buy the stocks of companies that can do well without any help from Washington whatsoever.feedback

Jan Rogers Kniffen

Nordstrom is not highly levered, they have quite a bit in their way of real estate assets so is it probably easier for them to actually get this transaction done.feedback

Neil Saunders - Banana Republic

Even though Nordstrom is doing better than others, department stores are under pressure so the value of the assets they've got against their debt could decline. Flexibility is one of the key thoughts behind the family wanting to bring the company back into private control.feedback

Kathy Gersch

I think financing this kind of deal could be potentially attractive, where they know the family have their own money in it and they understand the business.feedback

Kathy Gersch

For me, this is a natural transition for [Nordstrom]. This gives them an opportunity to take a bit longer-term view on what does [restructuring] look like – thinking how we reshape ourselves without market pressures.feedback

Eric Schiffer

I think this is a clear message that consumers are changing how they operate and that there is a free fall happening in retail. It's crippling old brands and hanging over their head in every threatening way. If you're an e-commerce pure-play, you're in a powerful position.feedback

Jim Cramer

One of the things Nordstrom has really felt awful about is every time they spend to keep up with Amazon the analysts hate them. They want to open up a few more stores. And everybody feels like, Why are you spending, why are you spending, why are you spending. What they're saying is, We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore.' We have nothing but profitable stores. They want the whole. They want what they see, which is they have a very good e-commerce … [and] profitable stores. They just think their stock got too cheap.feedback

Jim Cramer

Basically what Nordstrom is saying is you know what, Even if Amazon just comes out with both barrels, we still have a business. And if you don't like it, we'll take it. The family wants to put its money where its mouth is. This is a dicey thing if you're in the Nordstrom family, dicey. Amazon has only accelerated.feedback

Ivanka Trump

Tomorrow AEI-Brookings releases their Paid Family Leave report. It's time to make America great for working families.feedback

Jerome A. Cohen - Council on Foreign Relations

There is no doubt that a statement by the Ivanka Trump organization, expressing deep concern over the detention of labor activists striving to improve working conditions, would be helpful to their situation. It alone might bring about their release.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

If you're going to see something and say something, it has to be followed by, do something. And this president is trying to do something to protect the people of this country.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

I think social media for the president is extremely important. It gives him the ability to speak directly to the people without the bias of the media filtering those types of communications. He, at this point, has over 100-plus million contacts through social media, on all those platforms. I think it's a very important tool for him to be able to utilize.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

The president will make that decision. We'll be watching with the rest of the world when Director Comey testifies.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

The president will make that final decision but if Mr. Comey does testify we'll be watching with everyone else. I would point out two things: most of Washington, of course many of the Democrats, detested this man until Donald Trump fired him, which Jim Comey said in his own goodbye letter was the right of the president to do.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

President Trump believes the climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of the equation.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

If you really cared about that piece, and you're one of these CEOs crowing today, then you would say 'let's get a better deal.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

He believes that global warming is naturally occurring. That there are shifts naturally occurring.feedback

Lucas Grindley

Something about those Pride tweets struck a nerve with LGBT people. We're sick of being used by Ivanka Trump as a prop. There are straight people who like to give themselves a very low bar for allyship and then pat themselves on the back for watching Modern Family without visibly wincing. The Trumps are exactly these kind of people.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

The president will make that decision. He was off by hundreds of thousands in his count, his sworn testimony count, of the number of emails that Huma Abedin allegedly sent to her husband Anthony Weiner. When Director Comey goes to testify, I think that will be a very clarifying moment. I would again repeat that his most recent sworn testimony had to be corrected almost immediately. It's more important to have somebody testify under oath, frankly, than to have his friends and his former colleagues out there speaking to the media not under oath.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Guessing this headline on @CNN is more relevant than 'Russia' to real people: 'U.S. Unemployment hits lowest level since 2001.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

The president will make that decision, but, look, we want to refer everybody to what Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said about James Comey. He went and looked at the investigation about the way Mr. Comey handled Hillary Clinton's e-mail investigation, and he concluded that it really hurt the morale and the integrity of the department.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

You should ask him that, and I hope you have a chance. He was elected to this job in large part because he promised to protect American jobs, American interests, American workers and frankly America. You know, in four and a half short months, he has already done so much to unleash energy investment and to really roll back draconian and burdensome environmental regulations that President [Barack] Obama sneaked in there. This was a very poorly negotiated bad deal accord from the beginning.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

He believes in clear air, clean water, a clean environment, and he believes that we have to negotiate better deals for this country, and that there's a balance between environmental protection and economic relief. You should ask him that. And I hope you get the opportunity to.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Why should we frontload so much of the economic burden in this agreement?feedback

Kellyanne Conway

The president believes in a clean environment, clean air, clean water. He has received awards as a businessman, in that regard.feedback

George T. Conway III

I have reluctantly concluded, however, that, for me and my family, this is not the right time for me to leave the private sector and take on a new role in the federal government. Kellyanne and I continue to support the president and his administration, and I look forward to doing so in whatever way I can from outside the government.feedback

Adrienne Watson

For years, Ivanka Trump has ignored public reports of awful labor conditions at a factory that makes her shoes. Now, she must decide whether she can ignore the Chinese government's apparent attempt to silence an investigation into those worker abuses. Ivanka's brand should immediately cease its work with this supplier, and the Trump administration should reverse its current course and confront China on its human rights abuses.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Dubke "made very clear that he would see through the president's international trip, and come to work every day and work hard even through that trip because there was much to do here back at the White House.feedback

Bill Howe

We're trying to find a set of requirements that different departments can meet in different ways. These days, being good at data means you could get a job anywhere. Nordstrom, the post office, Walmart, they've all got analytics groups.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I did not know Mike Dubke before he came on as communications director, I did not know him well. I know he's worked very hard here, but people in administrations tend to leave on their own volition as well.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

What I will say is that (Dubke) has expressed his desire to leave the White House and made very clear that he would see through the President's international trip.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

It was misleading the vice president that made the situation unsustainable.feedback

Ivanka Trump

In every country, including the United States, women and girls face challenges. Saudi Arabia's progress, especially in recent years, is very encouraging. But there's still a lot of work to be done and freedoms and opportunities to continue to fight for.feedback

Ivanka Trump

Each of you know this to be true. And yet the stories of Saudi women, such as yourselves, catalysing change, inspire me to believe in the possibility of global women's empowerment. Thank you @JimYongKim for your leadership & for joining me in a meaningful discussion with women entrepreneurs today.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized, and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. Most people don't know that because it didn't get covered.feedback

Mika Brzezinski - MSNBC

We know for a fact she tries to book herself on this show. I won't do it, cuz I don't believe in fake news or information that is not true. And that is – every time I've ever seen her on television, something's askew, off or incorrect.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

The hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe have become virulent critics of the President and those close to him. Ignoring insults and insinuations is a valuable skill. But when sentiments are attributed to me that are not true, it is necessary to respond. My beliefs, commitments and loyalties are plain to see.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

The notion that I am serving for 'the money' or a 'paycheck' is absurd. As campaign manager, I made a fraction of what other consultants have made on unsuccessful presidential campaigns. Then I walked away from dozens of opportunities for millions of dollars, and instead walked into the White House. I would do it again. It is a privilege to assist President Trump in the White House, just as it was during the campaign. I know him, I respect him, I believe in him, and I am confident in his capacity to be a transformative and successful President.feedback

Mika Brzezinski - MSNBC

[Conway] would shill for Trump in extensive fashion and then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off and she would say 'Blech, I need to take a shower,' because she disliked her candidate so much.feedback

Trevor Noah

CNN, why do you keep putting Kellyanne Conway on the air? Her statements are like milk that you leave out over night. They go bad real quick.feedback

Sean Spicer

My job is to represent the president and to talk about what he's doing and what he wants. I'm not here to speak for myself. I'm here to speak for the president of the United States and our government.feedback

Mika Brzezinski - MSNBC

Then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be turned off. And she'd say, Blegh. I need to take a shower. Because she disliked her candidate so much. I love CNN, but you gotta stop putting Kellyanne on the air. It's politics porn. You're just getting your little ratings crack. OK? But it's disgusting.feedback

Mika Brzezinski - MSNBC

This is a woman, by the way, who came on our show during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion, and then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off and she would say 'bleeech I need to take a shower,' because she disliked her candidate so much. I have to take a shower because it feels so dirty to be saying what I'm saying. There's nothing that she brings to the table that's honest. Your hosts know it. Your hosts look pained when they interview her because they know they're just doing politics porn.feedback

Lindsay Shookus

We've gotten a lot of pitches from people, big people, like, I can play this person on the Cabinet, or I can play this person. It's in the vein of Melissa and Alec and Larry David, and it's never happened before. We got a lot of Kellyanne [Conway] and [Steve] Bannon pitches. But the casting has to make sense. You don't want to make a splash to make a splash. That's not what we do.feedback

Mika Brzezinski - MSNBC

This is a woman, by the way, who came on our show during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion and then she would get off the air… the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off and she would say, Bleeeech I need to take a shower,' because she disliked her candidate so much. Note to CNN. Sorry, I love CNN. But you've got to stop putting Kellyanne on the air. It's politics porn. You're just getting your little ratings crack, OK? But it's disgusting.feedback

Mika Brzezinski - MSNBC

This is a woman, by the way, who came on our show during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion. Then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off and she would say, Bleh, I need to take a shower,' because she disliked her candidate so much. I'm with the campaign until the bitter end, unless… Who knows? But I'm sitting here as his campaign manager.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

The idea that you think that this was about Russia and not about a FBI director who just yesterday forced his bureau to correct sworn testimony to the Senate judiciary committee, where he said Huma Abedin had this practice, she had forwarded quote 'hundreds of thousands of emails'. The President took the advice of the deputy attorney general, who oversees the director of the FBI, and brought those concerns to the attorney general, who brought them to the President. And they made a decision to remove him.feedback

Stephen Massocca

The numbers were light again, people don't seem to be spending money, despite employment and income numbers being good. It's concerning.feedback

Jim Cramer

I found myself thinking Amazon is so much more sophisticated about its customers, it could probably predict exactly what age, what gender, who would go next door, at what time, how much they'd spend, and then they'd give you a coupon before you went. I always felt that Nordstrom has been fighting its cross-town rival in Seattle with one arm tied behind its back because of Nordstrom's asset-heavy model. Now I think it's both arms.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I would point them to the three letters that were received today, Anderson [Cooper]: The letter by President Donald Trump, the letter by Attorney General Sessions, and really, the underlying report by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who the FBI director reports to.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Can you imagine rolling your eyes, having a male anchor on a network roll eyes at Hillary Clinton, at somebody, a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton? I think not. He had me sit through a bunch of tapes showing then candidate Trump commending Jim Comey about Hillary Clinton's emails, talking about him etc. and the fact is that they showed all these clips and it showed candidate Trump in Grand Rapids Michigan and I said 'hey, thanks for the trip down memory lane'. I face sexism a lot of times when I show up for interviews like that.feedback

Mike Khouw

Looks like this trader is making a contrary bet. At this point, any kind of positive news could cause a big snapback. What that's telling you is that the options market is reflecting what's happening. I think it would be surprising if more damage were to happen at this point.feedback

Boris Schlossberg

If we have another month of negative inflation data, that's going to make the assumptions of three rate hikes very problematic. Volatility is supposed to be mean-reverting, and if that's the case, we may be in serious trouble.feedback

Erinn Murphy

While Nordstrom is still subject to the significant macro headwinds, we do believe the concept has more 'staying power' on a longer-term basis.feedback

Boris Schlossberg

If the VIX starts to go really high, that means equities are going to be in trouble.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

You're conflating two things that do not belong together. Thanks for the trip down memory lane I was on your show often last fall, saying we were going to win Michigan and how we were going to do it. Hillary Clinton is in search of sexism as a lame excuse for why her disastrous candidacy and campaign lost six months ago. I face sexism a lot of times when I show up for interviews like that. Can you imagine if a male anchor rolled eyes at Hillary Clinton? At a female spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton? I think not.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I'm not going to reveal to you conversations between the president of the United States and the director of the FBI.feedback

Jeff Gennette

Most of our ferocious off-price competitors are off mall right now. We do hope that we will have a viable off-price concept that is on mall... that millions of American consumers come to each and every day.feedback

Neil Saunders - Banana Republic

As much as we can see the logic for this from the perspective of trying to make space more productive, we believe the strategy will ultimately fall short.feedback

Ken Perkins - Morningstar

Traffic is obviously going to come at lower average unit retail and smaller transaction prices and those consumers are unlikely to gravitate to the other part of the store.feedback

Karen Hoguet

We are encouraged by the performance of these combined stores, where the total store sales are being lifted.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

This has nothing to do with the campaign from six months ago, this has everything to do with the performance of the FBI director since the President has been in the White House. It "has nothing to do with Russia. [This] has everything to do with whether the current FBI director has the President's confidence and can faithfully execute his duties.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

You want to question the timing of when he hires, when he fires. It's inappropriate. He'll do it when he wants to. Especially on your network, you always want to talk about Russia, Russia, Russia. Yet now they want him to be a martyr? None of us want to re-litigate the campaign. We won it.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

You're talking about President Trump on the campaign with respect to Jim Comey. He's the President, and he is faced with new evidence about the way people at the FBI and the way people on both sides of the aisle and elsewhere feel about Director Comey.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

This has nothing to do with Russia. Somebody must be getting $50 every time [Russia] is said on TV. … (This) has everything to do with whether the current FBI director has the president's confidence and can faithfully execute his duties. It's not a cover-up. You want this to be about Russia when this is about quote restoring and integrity at the FBI.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

You're conflating two things that don't belong together. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, I was on your show often last fall saying we were going to win Michigan and how we were going to do it, so that was fun. But here's what happened today. Today, not in a campaign, in the White House, the President of the United States took decisive action–.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

It's not a cover up. The president makes it very clear in his letter. [Comey] assured him he's not under investigation. I think you're looking at wrong set of facts here. You're going back to campaign. This man is president of the United States. He acted decisively today. You want this to be about Russia when this is about restoring public confidence in the FBI….feedback

Simon Goodley

After many apparent contradictions, the company linked to the Sports Direct scandal is expected to make an announcement on its future. Transline, the temporary recruiter that became embroiled in the Sports Direct scandal, is many things to many different audiences. But, as we enter a crucial week for the company, it’s an opportune moment to note the stab it’s making at being the Kellyanne Conway of the business world.feedback

Art Hogan

There will probably be a knee-jerk reaction the wrong way when we hear some of those larger retailers come out and say foot traffic in the mall is terrible. Hopefully we don't start assuming that because people aren't going to Macy's the consumer is dead.feedback

Nate Thooft - Manulife Asset Management

There's a lot of headline risk attached to retailers so we're not a big fan of owning a lot of the brick and mortar mass retailers right now.feedback

Tobias Levkovich - Citi

Ivanka Trump

I'm his daughter. I've known him my entire life. He trusts me. I don't have a hidden agenda. I'm not looking to hit him to help myself.feedback

Ivanka Trump

Long term, we aren't remembered for how late we stayed at the office, how many buildings we developed or deals we closed.feedback

Ivanka Trump

It's about taking a bigger-picture approach and creating a routine that works for you and your family.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I have, personally, thrown balance out the window. I don't even strive for it anymore because I don't like to intentionally set myself up for failure.feedback

Ivanka Trump

If I am negotiating a major partnership, I might work three weeks straight. If I'm planning a work trip, I know not to book something the night before I leave or after I return because I want to spend time with my family. Then I have other moments, like if one of the kids is sick, that completely change the dynamic of the day (or the week!).feedback

Ivanka Trump

Knowing my family is in the spotlight, I decided I was going to embrace it. If I can help celebrate the fact that I'm a super-engaged mom and unabashedly ambitious entrepreneur ... I'm going to do that.feedback

Ivanka Trump

During extremely high-capacity times, like during the campaign, I went into survival mode: I worked and I was with my family; I didn't do much else. Honestly, I wasn't treating myself to a massage or making much time for self-care. I wish I could have awoken early to meditate for twenty minutes and I would have loved to catch up with the friends I hadn't seen in three months, but there just wasn't enough time in the day. Together we will debunk the caricature of what it looks like to be a 'working woman.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I realised that it might be helpful in changing the narrative - even in a small way -to, for example, debunk the superwoman myth by posting a photo that my husband candidly snapped of me digging in the garden with the kids in our backyard, my hair in a messy ponytail, dirt on my cheek. I've been careful not to pretend it's easy because it is not.feedback

Ivanka Trump

If you choose to have a child or children early in your career, and later you decide to return to a traditional corporate setting, be prepared for the fact that you will be older than your peers at the same level. In light of government ethics rules, I want to be clear that this book is a personal project. I wrote it at a different time in my life, from the perspective of an executive and an entrepreneur, and the manuscript was completed before the election last November.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I have grown tremendously as a person, and the experience has been life changing.feedback

Ivanka Trump

Women who work are real. I began to wonder whether I had been doing women who work a disservice by not owning the reality that, because I've got an infant, I'm in my bathrobe at 7am and there's pureed avocado all over me. I realized that it might be helpful in changing the narrative – even in a small way – to, for example, debunk the superwoman myth by posting a photo that my husband candidly snapped of me digging in the garden with the kids in our backyard, my hair in a messy ponytail, dirt on my cheek.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Lisa Bloom

Jesse Watters' on air sexual harassment of Ivanka Trump is a vivid reminder of Fox News' smirking culture of hypersexualizing and demeaning women. Perhaps Mr. Watters, vacation' should end the way Bill O'Reilly's did.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I think there is a global humanitarian crisis that's happening, and we have to come together and we have to solve it. That has to be part of the discussion. But that's not going to be enough in and of itself.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I've certainly heard the criticism from the media, and that's been perpetuated. He encouraged me and enabled me to thrive. I grew up in a house where there were no barriers to what I could accomplish. It has been a little under 100 days but it has just been a remarkable, incredible journey.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I think the thousands of women who have worked with and for my father for decades, when he was in the private sector, are testament to his belief and solid conviction in the potential of women and their ability to do the job as well as any man. Certainly not the latter ... I am rather unfamiliar with this role as well, it is quite new to me. It's been a little under 100 days but it's just been a remarkable and incredible journey. You know as an entrepreneur and as an individual prior to this, in the private sector, I care very much about empowering women in the workplace.feedback

Ivanka Trump

Certainly not the latter. You hear the reaction from the audience. Some attitudes toward women that your father has displayed might leave one questioning whether he's such an empowerer of women. I should have pressed 'coffee,' . I threw it a curveball by pressing 'hot chocolate.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I'm seeking the counsel .. . of informed and thoughtful women and men and I'm really striving to think about how best to empower women in the economy, both domestically and across the globe. I grew up in a house where there were no barriers to what I could accomplish ... there was no difference for me and my brothers and I think as a business leader you saw that and as a president you'll absolutely see that.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I'm very proud of my father's advocacy, long before he came into the presidency, but during the campaign including in the primaries, he's been a tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive. I've certainly heard the criticism from the media, and that's been perpetuated. But I know from personal experience and I think the thousands of women who've worked with and for my father for decades when he was in the private sector are a testament to his belief and solid conviction in the potential of women and their ability to do the job as well as any man.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I don't like the word 'accomplice' because in this context, I don't know that that's productive. I don't know that the critics who may say that of me, if they found themselves in this very unique and unprecedented situation that I am now in, would do any differently than I am doing.feedback

Ivanka Trump

As a daughter, I can speak on a very personal level knowing that he encouraged and enabled me to thrive. I don't take that lightly as a parent now myself. And there was no difference for me and my brothers.feedback

Joe Scarborough

She's in none of the key meetings. … She's just saying things, just to get in front of the TV set and prove her relevance because behind the scenes – behind the scenes, she's not in these meetings.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Building that wall and having it funded remains an important priority to him. We also know that that can happen later this year and into next year. And in the interim you see other smart technology and other resources and tools being used toward border security. He also reminded people that there's a flow of illegal immigrants over the border. There is also the flow of drugs. I don't really hear a lot of Democrats talk about that. The president has made very clear that drugs are poisoning our youth and others. He said it again just yesterday.feedback

Jimmy Wales

This will be the first time that professional journalists and citizen journalists will work side-by-side as equals writing stories as they happen, editing them live as they develop, and at all times backed by a community checking and rechecking all facts. Someone I know convinced me to give Mr Trump 100 days before making my mind up, but then on day one Kellyanne Conway came out and said her 'alternative facts' line. That was when I really decided to move forward.feedback

Rojan Robotham

It's very challenging to find quality before and after-care and care that works with a military schedule. So I am hoping if not yourself or Ivanka Trump – somebody– takes it on and really solves it for us, cause it's a need. I hope to encourage her and others to advocate to not cut child care in general and increase more. I think it's great that she is hearing it from myself and other people 'cause oftentimes you have to hear it from more than one person and different parts of the community for people to take action.feedback

Allen Adamson

The quick reaction will prevent it from escalating further, but it won't mitigate the perception among flyers that flying is becoming a less enjoyable experience every day. It's another example of airlines struggling to treat their passengers with the traditional 'customer is always right' attitude. Good customer service is finding a way to deescalate a situation and he (the flight attendant) was throwing gasoline on it.feedback

Ivanka Trump

Like many other professional women, I have juggled the demands that come with growing my family and building my businesses, and I realize that I am more fortunate than most. In order to extend the reach of those who will benefit from this book, I have established the Ivanka M. Trump Charitable Fund to receive the unpaid portion of my advance and future royalties received from Women Who Work and to make grants to charitable organizations that support the economic empowerment for women and girls.feedback

Ivanka Trump

In light of government ethics rules, I want to be clear that this book is a personal project. I wrote it at a different time in my life, from the perspective of an executive and an entrepreneur, and the manuscript was completed before the election last November. Out of an abundance of caution and to avoid the appearance of using my official role to promote the book, I will not publicize the book through a promotional tour or media appearances. I am extremely proud of this book and grateful to the many people who lent their voices and shared their stories in its pages.feedback

In a breakthrough trade agreement, President Trump agreed that China is no longer a currency manipulator in exchange for China opening its markets to Ivanka Trump merchandise.

When she was walking in front of The Willard, they treated her like a rock star. I'm going to try to work on him and get him at church.

Sarah Posner

In nearly every tale of White House intrigue about the simmering battle between the Bannonites and Trump’s more “establishment” advisors, Ivanka Trump is cast as a moderating influence on her father. She and her husband Jared Kushner are constantly portrayed as a kind of collective voice of calm, poise, and reason, who are prevailing over the tempestuous Stephen Bannon and his efforts to push President Trump over the edge of the precipice of extremism.feedback

Allen Adamson

You can't separate Ivanka from her role in life and from her business. Her celebrity status is now not only being fuelled by her wealth and her family connection, but by her huge role in the White House. All that buzz is hardwired to her products.feedback

Robert Weissman

Everything she does, is effectively an advertisement for the Ivanka Trump brand.feedback

Allen Adamson

No choice is a good choice because they are going to upset lots of shoppers no matter which way they go. That's why they're a deer in headlights. In this retailing environment, no one wants to give shoppers another reason not to come to the store. She has clearly strengthened the brand, and added the dimension of having a powerful political stage on which to make her story more interesting. The risk is she has less control of her image than before because … she is not in control of how events unfold.feedback

Lee Stranahan

Yeah, I think there's gonna be a backlash. What I've been trying to do is factually make people aware that there's a solid reason for the backlash and it's not just personality but ideology. Trump did not run on what Ivanka Trump and her circle of friends want.feedback

Longtime media writer Michael Wolff interviewed White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday at the Newseum event #TrumpandthePress. In noteworthy ironies, Conway lectured the crowd about TV pundits who “literally say things that are just not true.”.feedback

We are not in an oppositional moment right now; that has passed. ... Let me send the message: Stenographer is what you're supposed to be.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

If you're talking about the way the president is covered, I think there is something that I call presumptive negativity. You can look at something and see it as a positive or as a negative, and for this president it's often seen through the negative lens, which is not just unfair, it's actually inaccurate and it really robs the larger viewership or readership or the American people of the opportunity to hear what's really happening.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I don't really hate anyone. I have four kids; you can't scare me ... I think these are over-generalisations and I don't want to over-generalise the relationship with the media and the media writ large.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

It's what I tell small children: just because somebody says something, doesn't make it true. It's a great lesson for everyone. Just because they say the darkness or democracy doesn't make it true. I just think a lot of the right questions are not being asked. This comfort in sameness has this effect where people are afraid to go first ... If you're all looking out of this pane of glass, you only have to tilt your head that much, 20 to 30 degrees that way, and you can still see what everyone else is seeing but you end up seeing someone through an entirely different light, literally.feedback

Ivanka Trump

Ivanka Trump

I would argue that if I had not come to Washington, D.C., and if I was in New York growing my business I would be doing far better than by placing the restrictions that I have placed on my team, and ensuring that any growth is done with extreme caution. So just practically speaking, if my interest was making money or growing my business, I would do far better to completely disengage and do exactly that. I felt like proximity to my father and to the White House and – with my husband taking such an influential role in the administration, I didn't want to also be running a business.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I do, and almost everyone he surrounds him with does. We're in a unique time where noise equals, in a lot of people's perception, advocacy. And I fundamentally disagree with that. I do think there's a time for public denouncement. . . . I also think there's a time for discussion.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Even President Trump’s harshest critics concede that his daughter Ivanka Trump is poised, intelligent and capable. Nevertheless, she suffers from the same myopia as her father. That’s a big problem, both because it reinforces the president’s shortcomings and because she is more likable, and hence more effective in moving public opinion than her father.feedback

Ivanka Trump

As a New Yorker, that doesn't happen. I'm still my father's daughter. To me, this particular title was about giving critics the comfort that I'm holding myself to the highest ethical standard. I'll weigh in with my father on the issues I feel strongly about.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I think that for me this isn't about promoting my viewpoints. I wasn't elected by the American people to be president. My father is gonna do a tremendous job. And I wanna help him do that. But I don't think that it will make me a more effective advocate to constantly articulate every issue publicly where I disagree. … And that's okay. That means that I'll take hits from some critics who say that I should take to the street. And then other people will in the long-term respect where I get to. But I think most of the impact I have, over time most people will not actually know about.feedback

Ivanka Trump

I would say not to conflate lack of public denouncement with silence. In some case it's through protest and it's through going on the nightly news and talking about or denouncing every issue in which you disagree with. Other times it is quietly, and directly, and candidly. So where I disagree with my father, he knows it, and I express myself with total candour. Where I agree, I fully lean in and support the agenda and hope that I can be an asset to him and make a positive impact. But I respect the fact that he always listens. It's how he was in business. It's how he is as president.feedback

Ivanka Trump

Politics is a tough business. When I spoke to '60 Minutes' it was, I think five or six days following the election. I was processing real time the new reality and – and what it would mean… I realized that having one foot in and one foot out wouldn't work. And the reality is that it all happened very organically for me.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Last week, the New York Times reported that the president’s daughter and son-in-law “remain the beneficiaries of a sprawling real estate and investment business still worth as much as $740 million.” Jared Kushner’s business depends on “foreign investment from undisclosed sources.” And to top it off, Ivanka Trump still has her stake in her father’s Washington, D.C., hotel, where foreign governments book rooms and events. Like President Trump, they have ceded management roles in their businesses but not their ownership stake. They are, therefore, in danger of running afoul of both constitutional and statutory prohibitions.feedback

Ed Rogers

A lot of people are hyperventilating over Ivanka Trump going to work in the White House with a proper job title. But, as I wrote last week, Trump possesses much-needed poise, maturity, discretion and deft judgement that could be put to good use in this administration. She should be working out of her father’s private study so that she can rush in to the Oval Office at the first sound of a disturbance or a misguided tweet. Liberals, however, are saying that she isn’t qualified for the job, that her position is nepotism at its worst. Well, I’m not going to even mention Bobby Kennedy here, because the person I think is most analogous is Valerie Jarrett from the Obama White House. She was an intimate adviser to both the first lady and the president. Her relationship to them as a soulmate was the only reason she was in the White House, and her portfolio was borderless.feedback

Ivanka Trump

There is no modern precedent for an adult child of the president.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Whenever President Trump has run into trouble - be it a gaffe, a policy blunder, a personal scandal - he has gone to his old standby, bashing the media. His adoring base nods with approval as he and his brain trust (e.g. Stephen K. Bannon, Kellyanne Conway) throw grenades at the media as a whole as well as specific individuals who dare cross them (such as April Ryan who - gasp! - shook her head when met with press secretary Sean Spicer’s spin). In the wake of his loss on Trumpcare, it seems he cannot even count on his favorite punching bag to distract very many voters.feedback

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Ivanka Trump are feigning an interest in STEM careers with a photo op at the National Air and Space Museum while eliminating all funding for NASA's education programs. This takes chutzpah to a new level. If this administration was genuinely interested in promoting STEM programs, it would walk the walk, not just talk the talk. The next generation of astronauts, scientists, engineers and mathematicians need support, not budget cuts eliminating the very programs being promoted.feedback

There has been some hand-wringing in the media lately over the revelation that Ivanka Trump has a second-floor West Wing office. I’ll admit this is an unusual development, so I’m not surprised by the raised eyebrows and faux concern. But in this case, the move should be welcomed by anyone who wants the president to succeed. The problem with this White House isn’t that there is too much poise, maturity, discretion and deft judgement surrounding the president. There is too little. And by all accounts, Ivanka Trump possesses much-needed poise, maturity, discretion and deft judgement that could be put to good use. She is a reassuring presence in an unpredictable White House.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Candidates had been told after 2012, because Mitt Romney only got 27 percent of the Hispanic vote, that they had to support comprehensive immigration reform. We were telling them, That's not true. Every time I went to a Trump rally, I saw in the faces in the crowd everybody I grew up with.feedback

The White House response is that he's not going to release his tax returns. We litigated this all through the election. People didn't care. They voted for him. And let me make this very clear. Most Americans are very focused on what their tax returns will look like while President Trump is in office, not what his look like.

One of the important elements of this plan revises the current tax code to eliminate the disincentive for re-entry into the work force.

Mark Warner of Virginia said on a different show today, Jeanine, the President receives different intelligence than everyone else.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I think people will see six or seven major points about this executive order that do clarify who was covered.feedback

Ivanka Trump

My administration wants to work with members of both parties to make child care accessible and affordable, to help ensure new parents that they have paid family leave.feedback

Cedric Richmond

Tim, you kind of opened the door. I really just want to know what was going on there, because, you know, I won't tell anybody. And you can just explain to me that circumstance – because she really looked kind of familiar in that position there. Don't answer – and I don't want you to refer back to the 1990s.feedback

Tim Scott

Has anyone seen the controversy around Kellyanne Conway and the couch in the Oval Office? Come on, people. You remember the '90s. That couch has had a whole lot of worse things. Come on now.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Let me answer that globally. He's the president of the United States. He has information and intelligence that the rest of us do not.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

We have this double standard for anonymous sources. The media loves to use anonymous sources for anything and everything that could possibly be derogatory or negative for this president and his administration, and yet they refuse to give any credibility to such sources when it may be something positive or exculpatory.feedback

Carol Spieckerman

These controversial endorsements from polarizing figures like Kellyanne Conway, and the tweets from her father about her brand, undoubtedly have caused more damage [than good]. Ivanka may have technically distanced herself from the brand but the optics around her ongoing connection to her father, to include pictures of her in various parts of the White House, reinforce the link and in the end, the brand backlash.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I'm going to go get some myself today. This is just a wonderful line. I own some of it. I'm going to give a free commercial here: go buy it today, everybody, you can find it online.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

He is the president of the United States. He has information and intelligence that the rest of us do not.feedback

Marjorie J. Spruill

There seems to be great resentment of both as power-hungry and wanting to control men. Whereas Hillary is called castrating or shrewish, Conway is often called a slut. The implication is that she is using femininity to control men.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I saw what former Attorney General Mukasey said yesterday on a different network, that he thinks it's probably right or correct.feedback

Allen Adamson

It's a balancing act. The Yankees have to balance their respect and embrace of tradition with accepting what's new. What's new is, the individuality of players is important in making a sports event engaging and interesting.feedback

Allen Adamson

Having everyone clean shaven and looking the same has a strong team dimension, but it makes the brand a little less interesting for fans.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

Well, I wasn't at the dinner. I'm just finding out about this. But the fact is, I'm still in sort of a state of, what is going on here that the person who occupies the White House is a person who was on that Hollywood video that said the crude things he said about women.feedback

Tim Scott

Has anyone seen the controversy around Kellyanne Conway and the couch in the Oval Office? Come on, people. You remember the '90s. That couch has had a whole lot of worse things.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

I wasn't at the dinner. I'm just finding out about this. You all are criticizing Cedric for something he said in the course of the evening, and he maybe should be criticized for that; I just don't know the particulars. But do I, every day, marvel at the fact that somebody who said the gross and crude things that President Trump said, he wouldn't even be allowed in a frat house, and he's in the White House. I think everybody was making crude comments. And I just – I just don't know. I wasn't at that dinner.feedback

Cedric Richmond

Where I grew up saying that someone is looking or acting 'familiar' simply means that they are behaving too comfortably. I decided to use that joke due to the large social media backlash over her inappropriate posture considering there were more than 60 [historically black college and university] presidents in the room.feedback

Jennifer Palmieri - Clintons

What I find really disturbing is because he's a man, that's really smart and strategic. Why is there not a theory behind what Kellyanne does?feedback

Ivanka Trump

I'm probably the most obviously like [Trump Sr.]. In certain ways, Eric is very similar to him in terms of his love of construction and building. And Don has his sense of humor.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Well, it was alternative information and additional facts. And that got conflated. But, you know, respectfully, Norah, I see mistakes on TV every single day and people just brush them off. Everybody thinks it's just so funny that the wrong … movie was, you know, heralded as the winner of the Oscars. Yeah, just to swallow so much, that the country looks at you through this negative lens, you know corruption and cronyism and 'You're lying' and 'You want money and you're motivated by power.feedback

Norah O'Donnell - CBS News

It's not just the fire in your belly anymore. You have to have the bile in your throat. And this is why I think many women do not run for office. Many good men and women who would.feedback

Tim Scott

Has anyone seen the controversy around Kellyanne Conway and the couch in the Oval Office? Come on people. You remember the '90s. That couch has had a whole lot of worse things. Come on now.feedback

Stefan Passantino

We concluded that Ms. Conway acted inadvertently and is highly unlikely to do so again. This Administration is committed to complying with the ethical obligations set forth in the Standards of Conduct. Ms. Conway has acknowledged her understanding of the Standards and has reiterated her commitment to abiding by them in the future.feedback

Stefan Passantino

It is noted that Ms. Conway made the statement in question in a light, off-handed manner while attempting to stand up for a person she believed had been unfairly treated and did so without nefarious motive or intent to benefit personally.feedback

Elijah Cummings

Other federal employees would likely be suspended for engaging in this conduct, and White House officials should not be held to a different standard.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I was being asked to take a picture in a crowded room with the press behind us, and I was asked to take a certain angle and was doing exactly that. I certainly meant no disrespect. I didn't mean to have my feet on the couch. I'm not a victim at all, but people should take very seriously the import of their words. Especially when they know I meant no disrespect.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

It is venomous. It is vicious. It bothers my children to be frank with you.feedback

Jason Chaffetz

That was wrong, wrong, wrong. It is wholly unacceptable, no ifs, ands or buts about it.feedback

Stephen Colbert

Adding just one more thing: Suck it, Nordstrom. So, as we come to end of tonight's address to Congress, I think we can all agree on one thing – one down, seven to go. There's a quicker way to say that entire sentence. She just lied.feedback

Stephen Colbert

The theme of the speech was 'renewal of the American spirit,' which, I've got to say, really just sounds like a Chinese bootleg of 'Make America Great Again'. And to begin the evening, Trump spoke in uplifting terms.feedback

Stephen Colbert

Any chance there's a mistake and 'Moonlight' is the president? Then he extinguished that torch with a coconut and asked the Democrats to leave the island. Honestly, I don't know what we inherited; you inherited, like, $100 million. Let's be honest. I've got to say, that must have been hard on Trump: People got so excited just hearing Obama's name. Well, there's one problem we can't solve for four years, but, other than that, I agree with you. And this surprised me. This next thing I did not expect at all. Trump came out as pro-choice when it comes to schools.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

The president spoke tonight before a joint session of Congress and we're going to ignore it for a very good reason, and the reason is I need a break from it, to be honest with you. Tonight if anyone says the name of the orange-colored man with the Russian boyfriend, they will have to put $100 in that jar that Guillermo is holding right now.feedback

Stephen Colbert

Honestly, I don't know what we inherited. You inherited like, $100 million. O.K.? Let's be honest. Maybe even rebuild it 10 times, if we had people who refused to pay their contractors. Nonessential federal workers – so Kellyanne Conway is out? People who believe that Donald Trump is an existential threat to this nation, to the experiment of democracy, to Western civilization itself, take heart, because for their powerful rebuttal, the Democrats showed a rerun of 'The Andy Griffith Show.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I was very busy today and didn't follow a lot of it, but I know there are a couple of reports at least showing what happened. And what happened is we had the largest gathering of men and women to date in the oval office for a picture. I was being asked to take a picture in a crowded room with the press behind us. I was asked to take a certain angle and was doing exactly that. I certainly meant no disrespect, I didn't mean to have my feet on the couch.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

It's difficult for me to call myself a feminist in a classic sense because it seems to be very anti-male, and it certainly is very pro-abortion, and I'm neither anti-male or pro-abortion.feedback

Neil Saunders - Banana Republic

Nordstrom ends is fiscal year as a company of two halves: the mainstream business, which is struggling to grow; and the off-price business which, overall, is motoring along nicely.feedback

Ivanka Trump

America is a nation built on the principle of religious tolerance. We must protect our houses of worship & religious centers. #JCC.feedback

Norm Eisen

The process was good here. While there are substantial red-actions, it appears that Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump had holdings that created the conflicts for Kushner in doing his job. They have divested themselves of those holdings, a sensible approach. It is shocking that the father-in-law did not choose to follow his son in law's example. Now the courts will have their say.feedback

Mark Feldstein

Where do you stop? Conway isn't the only member of the administration who has a truth-telling problem. It starts at the very top. Can you stop putting Donald Trump on the air if what he says is false? You can't. He's the president of the United States.feedback

Walter Shaub

Executive branch officials should use the authority entrusted to them for the benefit of the American people and not for private profit. These facts, if true, would represent a clear violation of the prohibition against misuse of position. Therefore, I recommend that the White House investigate Ms. Conway's actions and consider taking disciplinary action against her.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

By night's end, Mike Flynn had decided it was best to resign. He knew he'd become a lightning rod, and he made that decision. As time wore on, obviously the situation became unsustainable. We're moving on.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

No, not at all. Both were true. The president is very loyal. He's a very loyal person. And by night's end, Mike Flynn had decided it was best to resign. He knew he had become a lightning rod and he made that decision. That's one characterization. But the fact is that General Flynn continued in that position and was in the presidential daily briefings, was part of the leader calls as recently as [Monday] … and as time wore on, obviously the situation had become unsustainable. We're moving on.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

That fact is what became unsustainable. I think misleading the vice president was really the key here.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

The key here is the misleading of the vice president and others – the incomplete information or the inability to completely recall what did or did not happen as reflected in his debriefing of particular phone calls. Remember, in the end, it was misleading the vice president that made the situation unsustainable. In this case, it is the misleading to the vice president and also the inability to remember, as General Flynn started to clarify his remarks and say, I can't remember. I can't recall.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

I won't reveal that. That's a conversation between the Vice President and him.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Yes, Gen. Flynn does enjoy the full confidence of the president.feedback

Brian Hanover

As part of the company's initiative to optimize its online product assortment, we constantly refine that assortment to focus on our most profitable items. Amid that streamlining effort, 31 Trump Home items were among the items removed online this week. Products from the line are still offered online via third-party Marketplace vendors. Neither Sears nor Kmart carries the line in brick-and-mortar stores.feedback

Neil Stern

If there is a political blow back they will survive it given where there stores are.feedback

Tara Darrow - Nordstrom

We have not and will not share specific sales results numbers related to this brand or any other brand.feedback

Sean Spicer

She's been counselled, and that's all we're going to say.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

They (Nordstrom) are using her, who's been a champion for women's empowerment and women in the workplace, to get to him. So I think people can see through that. Go buy Ivanka's stuff, (is) what I'd say. I hate shopping, I'm going to get some myself today. It's a wonderful line. I own some of it. I'm going to just, I'm going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today everybody. You can find it online.feedback

Dubravko Lakos-Bujas

U.S. companies with high effective tax rates and high domestic revenue exposure will disproportionately benefit from a reduction in tax rates.feedback

David Kostin - Goldman Sachs Group

Stocks with the highest effective tax rates will be the clearest beneficiaries of any potential tax reform.feedback

Richard Kramer

There are certain types of internet content that advertisers don't regard as brand-safe. In the case of Twitter, with the abuse, with the vitriol that's on it, there's a lot of brands that just don't want to be associated with that sort of content.feedback

Richard Kramer

Can you imagine Nordstrom running a campaign on Twitter, pre-buying it or planning it ... and finding out that the president is slating them on the same platform?feedback

Richard Kramer

I think whatever your political views, it's clear that Trump is extremely divisive, and this isn't really a positive for advertisers, speaking ahead of Twitter's earnings report. This is not a platform that advertisers will want to, in advance, associate themselves with.feedback
