Trudeau urges police to ‘enforce the law’ on marijuana

A “frustrated” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants police to enforce the law and criminally charge illegal marijuana dispensaries.

A frustrated Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants police to “enforce the law” and criminally charge illegal marijuana dispensaries — even though weed legalization is looming.

“People are right now breaking the law,” Trudeau told the Star’s editorial board on Friday.

“We haven’t changed the laws. We haven’t legalized it yet. Yes, we got a clear mandate to do that. We’ve said we will. We’ve said we’re going to do it to protect our kids and to keep the money out of the pockets of criminals.”

But the spread of storefront “dispensaries” — scores of which have popped up on Toronto streets this year — is clearly a concern to the prime minister.

“It’s a situation that is frustrating and I can understand people’s frustration on this,” Trudeau said.

“The promise we made around legalizing marijuana was done for two reasons … that I was very, very clear about: one, to better protect our kids from the easy access they have right now to marijuana; and, two, to remove the criminal elements that were profiting from marijuana,” he said.

“We believe that a properly regulated, controlled system will achieve both of those measures. But we haven’t brought in that properly regulated, controlled system because it’s important that we do it right in order to achieve those two specific goals.”

That new regime will be unveiled next spring. The blueprint for the legislation is a report by former deputy prime minister Anne McLellan’s task force of medical and legal experts, which be released within days.

Until the new law is enacted some time in 2017, Trudeau stressed “the current prohibition stands.”

“So, I don’t know how much clearer we can be that we’re not legalizing marijuana to please recreational users,” he said.

“I mean, that will be a byproduct. We recognize that that is something that’s going to happen when it happens, but it’s not happened yet.”

While Trudeau said he had not yet pored over the McLellan panel’s report, he has clearly been thinking about the age limits for recreational marijuana use.

“It’s been highlighted many times that the effect of cannabis on the developing brain is particularly problematic,” the prime minister said.

“I’m not going to venture too much further into the science but I think there is a consensus that, yes, perhaps up until 21 or 25 it’s not as good as past that age. But I have a sense that the worst damage is in the 12-, 13-, 14-year-old range,” he said.

Trudeau emphasized Ottawa would “work hand in glove with the provinces,” which suggests there could be different age limits across the country.

“The federal drinking limit is set at 18 but if provinces want to make it 19 — as a few have — it can be 19.”

Currently, marijuana is legal for medicinal purposes with a prescription from a medical doctor.

It can only be supplied by the 36 Health Canada-licensed producers and delivered by registered mail or homegrown in small amounts.

Storefront dispensaries that claim to be supplying medicinal marijuana are not federally licensed and are breaking the existing law.

Asked what municipalities could do to deal with the scourge of such pot shops, Trudeau did not mince words: “You can enforce the law.”

Police, however, have been trying to do that in places like Toronto and Ottawa, with raids of dispensaries, but with middling effect.

Because the federal law will eventually be amended, some entrepreneurs appear willing to risk fines as a cost of doing business before outright legalization.

Kate Middleton and Prince William are rumored to end their relationship very soon. Now, new reports are claiming that Pippa Middleton is helping Prince Harry and Queen Elizabeth to separate the parents of Prince George and Princess Charlotte away from each other.

Rumors are rife that Kate Middleton and Prince William are encountering several problems on their marriage right now and speculations have it that they might divorce sooner or later.

According to reports, Pippa Middleton is now helping Prince Harry and Queen Elizabeth to realize the alleged Kate Middleton and Prince William divorce. Informants have stated that the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge was enraged after learning that she is currently pregnant with the third Royal baby.

Speculations have it that Pippa Middleton got worried when reports about Kate Middleton’s third pregnancy have spread like wildfire lately. Insiders have claimed that the sister-in-law of Prince William thinks the upcoming bundle of joy could overshadow her imminent wedding with fiancé James Matthews.

Pippa Middleton, reportedly, wants the attention of everyone when her wedding day arrives.

Kate Middleton flov løbet Carole Middleton Halloween mord klovn kostume. Skandale: Dronning Elizabeth fornærmet?

queenscorn

Det ser ud som om Kate Middleton familie er igen ydmygende både hende og den kongelige familie med deres fremstød for berømmelse og formue. Denne gang, er Kates forældre Michael Middleton og Carole Middleton bliver sprængt for at sælge killer klovn kostumer online for børn, da den frygtindgydende vanvittigt fortsætter med at feje begge sider af Atlanten.

Michael Middleton og Carole Middleton sælger børnenes versioner af de gruopvækkende killer klovn kostumer på deres Party Pieces hjemmeside, med den bizarre kostume rettet mod børn helt ned til alder fire. Sikkert, det er ikke et kostume, royale par prins William og Kate Middleton ønsker for deres egne to børn, Prince George og prinsesse Charlotte.

Ifølge Storbritanniens Mirror, kostumer, som kører omkring $ 23, tilsyneladende kommer med en blodig jumpsuit og maske med en åben hjerne. Der er flere versioner af killer klovn kostumer, som omfatter Deluxe Sinister Clown Costume, den Sideshow klovn, og Deluxe Zombie Clown Costume, som ifølge beskrivelsen har en ‘truende onde klovn ansigt.«

Mange kunder kritiserede Middletons så meget for at sælge kostumer i dårlig smag, at de siden er blevet fjernet fra deres officielle hjemmeside.
Selvfølgelig er det ikke første gang, Kate Middleton forældre har helt ydmyget hende i offentligheden. Denne gang sidste år, blev Carole Middleton spottet helt beruset, da hun angiveligt sneg sprut til en Rugby World Cup kom i London. Carole Middleton var angiveligt så beruset, at hun ikke engang kunne holde sit hoved hjælpe op i løbet af kampen. Hvis det ikke var nok, har Kates søskende, James Middleton og Pippa Middleton, også bragt skam til monarkiet med deres clinginess og konstante behov for at ride på Duchess ‘coat haler i et forsøg på at gøre et navn for sig selv i Londons sociale scene.

I hendes eget bud for at holde hendes navn i overskrifterne, Carole Middleton også udgivet pinlige billeder fra hendes datters barndom til offentligheden, og er endda blevet kaldt en “monster-in-law” for at skubbe sin vej inde Kensington Palace og nagende prins William for hverdagsagtige ting som at hjælpe med opvasken eller afhente efter sig selv. Det er måske grunden til Kate ikke er blevet set sammen med sin mor i måneder, da prins William sammen med dronning Elizabeth vil beholde de Middletons så langt væk fra monarkiet som muligt, før de ender ydmyge dem endnu mere med deres stupide og primitive narrestreger.

Kelly Chen: There’s no place to hide my kids in Hong Kong

Kelly Chen

Even though filming her latest movie, Horseplay, meant she had to be away from her two young sons, Hong Kong star Kelly Chen relished the experience.

In her 20-minute interview with Straits Times Life! to promote the movie, Chen sounds sunny and relaxed, and is refreshingly candid.

Unlike many celebrities who clam up over personal questions, she is open about discussing her children and her parenting style.

She lets on, for example, that she was concerned about being away from home as her businessman husband Alex Lau, 40, tends to be more lax with the boys. The couple got married in 2008.

“Even when my children are coughing, he will cave in to their demands and feed them chips. I’m okay with them eating junk food but not when they’re sick. They end up coughing all night and don’t sleep well. That’s the type of thing I’m worried about,” she says. However, her husband is strict when it comes to exposing the kids in public.

She says: “Many people have approached us to ask if the boys could be featured in advertisements, but my husband doesn’t allow it.”

Still, she wants to be able to take her kids out of the house and lead a normal life as much as possible. The family reportedly live in Hong Kong’s Kadoorie Hill.

“Hong Kong is too small, where can I possibly hide them anyway? So I’ll still go out with them,” she says.

“I’m pretty all right with people taking pictures of them. I don’t think the tabloids will really run anything negative about them. They’re just kids.”

With so much testosterone in the household, is she eager to have a daughter?

She says, chuckling: “I don’t mind having a girl, but only if I’m not the one who has to give birth. Pregnancy is really very tough, so I think I’m fine for now.”

Hulk Hogan Verdict Changed The Celebrity Sex Tape Landscape

hulkster-us

In celebrity sex tape scandal circles, it’s the lawsuit that changed everything.

Hulk Hogan won $140 million from Gawker after it published without consent a portion of a sex tape involving Hogan and his friend’s wife.

Gawker went bankrupt and was shut down in August after its parent company was sold to Univision.

Prior to the lawsuit, a small band of fixers and scandal specialists were kept gainfully employed by keeping stars’ private sex tapes off the market. After the verdict, however, business for these crisis managers has slowed to a trickle, as celebrities no longer need them, because they are no longer concerned about their private pics or tapes getting picked up by gossip magazines and websites that have been scared off by the Hogan haul.

“The business has changed in the sense that a lot of news outlets now have trepidation when it comes to reporting stories on sex tapes. Some are so scared about being sued, that the owners of some blogs are putting their assets offshore to protect themselves,” said Kevin Blatt, a crisis manager whose has helped make several celebrity sex tapes and hacked nude photos disappear. “I heard one big owner of a blog has put his personal assets in offshore holdings so he can’t get sued like [the owner of gawker] Nick Denton did personally.”

Denton was ordered to play Hulk Hogan $10 million himself, and also declared bankruptcy.

Nik Richie runs the Hollywood gossip website The Dirty. He told FOX411 that Hogan’s case was different from that of a typical celebrity sex tape. He said in most cases, a celebrity’s tape is leaked to a porn or gossip site, or offered by a star outright. The star gives consent for the sex tape to be distributed in exchange for a cut of the profits.

Celebs like Farrah Abraham and Paris Hilton had to sign off in order for their sex tapes to be distributed by adult entertainment companies. In turn, those companies gave the aforementioned stars a cut of the overall sales, whereas Hogan never signed any document allowing for his tape to be released.

Richie said hogan’s case has sites like his leery of publishing any pics or videos they get from anyone other than the stars themselves. That means pics and videos from phone hacks or stolen laptops, which before often made their ways onto sites like the dirty, are now gossip site kryptonite.

“From a media perspective, websites in the journalistic field like Gawker, even my site thedirty.com will stay away from public displays of received content of future celebrities,” Richie said. “The legal risks are too high because judges and juries have human emotions. If they don’t like what you display, you will lose regardless of the law.”

But the game hasn’t changed for everyone. Steven Hirsch, founder/co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment, published the Kim Kardashian and Farrah Abraham sex tapes, among many others, says as far as he’s concerned, it is business as usual.

“The Gawker case has no effect on celeb sex tapes. That was a media outlet publishing a clip under the heading of news,” Hirsch said. “It has always been the case that ultimately the celebs have to sign off prior to release. The idea is to create a scenario where it makes sense for everybody involved whether financially or for publicity to allow the release. That will never change.”

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau’s claim of being overwhelmed sparks debate about role of PM’s spouse

Sophie Gregoire

House leader says discussion about more staff for PM’s wife ‘perfectly appropriate’.

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau’s claim that she’s overwhelmed and needs more staff to cope with the mountain of requests for her time has ignited a debate about the role of a prime minister’s spouse.

In her interview with the French-language newspaper Le Soleil, Grégoire Trudeau said she wants to be everywhere, but cannot because her husband is the prime minister and she has three children to look after.

She said she gets numerous letters from people asking her to help with various projects and charities and is forced to make difficult choices about who she can help based on the resources she has.

Grégoire Trudeau also said her dining room table is her office, and while she has one assistant to help, that frequently proves to be insufficient for the demands on her time.

Unlike in the United States, there is no first lady or official role for the spouse of the prime minister, although prime ministers’ spouses usually stay active in a number of charitable organizations and causes.

But the interview detailing the demands on her time sparked a sarcastic response on Twitter with the hashtag #prayforsophie. People have been using the hashtag to poke fun at Grégoire Trudeau, sometimes in a vindictive manner.

“The kind of statements we heard from the prime minister’s wife, you know, speak to that disconnect with the reality that Canadian women face,” said NDP MP Niki Ashton. “So if we’re going … to talk about women feeling overwhelmed, let’s talk about everyday Canadian women feeling overwhelmed,” she added.

Tory MP calls it hypocrisy.

Conservative MP Candice Bergen said that being in the family of the prime minister was a big job that comes with sacrifices, but Justin Trudeau campaigned on families like his not needing help from taxpayers and he should stick to that principle.

“It really is the hypocrisy of Mr. Trudeau at this point always wanting more, always wanting more to do self-promotion, to do vanity trips, to do the things that he likes to do,” Bergen said. “I think that’s where the challenge is and where a lot of Canadians would question more.”

Government House leader Dominic LeBlanc, however, was quick to defend Grégoire Trudeau, saying that it is an established fact that the prime minister’s spouse is supported for official activities she undertakes on behalf of Canada.

“It’s no secret that Ms. Grégoire Trudeau is asked to attend an enormous number of events,” LeBlanc said. “She’s participated in a whole series of very worthy causes. So we find that a perfectly appropriate conversation to have: Does she have the adequate support to undertake these official functions?

An official response from the Prime Minister’s Office said Grégoire Trudeau participates in many activities such as the CHEO Healthy Kids Awards or the Wabano Fundraising Gala, as well as anorexia and bulimia awareness events, among others.

Grégoire Trudeau is also the official spokeswoman of Fillactive, a foundation that provides opportunities for girls 12 to 17 to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle.

“As has been the tradition in Canada — and has been the case for spouses of former prime ministers — [Grégoire Trudeau] receives help from PMO staff to fulfill the duties and responsibilities that come with the role,” the statement read. “She receives an extraordinarily high volume of correspondence and invitations.”

Angelina Dumpet Brad Efter Privat øje Afsløret Marion Cotillard Affære

bradcaught

Angelina Jolie har søgt om skilsmisse fra Brad Pitt efter at lære han hende utro med sin sexede co-star, fortalte en velplaceret kilde The Post tirsdag.

“Hun hyrede en privatdetektiv, fordi hun følte, at han var fjoller rundt med hende på settet, og det viser sig, var han. Og det var dråben, ” siger kilden.

Pitt, 52, havde været rygter om at have været cozying op til hans “Allied ” co-star Marion Cotillard, 40, i flere måneder under parrets optagelserne af World War II drama i London.

PI opdagede, at Pitt var snyd på sin kone på to år med Cotillard – mens også feste ligesom en enkelt fyr på en mission, siger kilden.

“Stemningen [off-set] var fuld af hårde stoffer og russiske ludere, og Angie blev fortalt Brad fik fanget i det, ” siger kilden.

“Han er i gang med nogle vanvittige midtvejskrise, og Angie er fodret op.”

Men en kilde tæt på Cotillard nægtet Pitt affære rygter og insisterede hun stadig med sin langsigtet partner, fransk skuespiller og instruktør Guillaume Canet.

“De er stadig meget sammen. De har været et par siden 2007 og har et barn, men har aldrig gift, ” siger kilden til Cotillard og Canet.

Kilden kunne ikke bekræfte franske rapporter om, at Cotillard er gravid med sit andet barn med Canet.

Jolies manager, Geyer Kosinski, sagde tirsdag, “Angelina vil altid gøre hvad der er i den bedste interesse for at beskytte sine børn.

“Hun værdsætter alles forståelse for deres behov for privatliv på dette tidspunkt, ” sagde han E! Nyheder.

Pitt tilføjede i en erklæring til People Magazine, “Jeg er meget ked af det, men det, der betyder mest nu er det trivsel vores børn.

“Jeg beder pressen at give dem den plads, de fortjener i denne udfordrende tid.”

Ud over sin mands påståede affære, Jolie, 41, var syg og træt af konstant at sparring over deres livsstil, fortalte en anden kilde The Post.

Hun har i stigende grad ønsket at afslutte Hollywood til fordel for at afsætte sig på fuld tid til at rejse kloden for hendes humanitære arbejde, mens Pitt foretrækker Tinseltown og dens parter, siger kilden.

Jolie talte før FN i Manhattan netop dette tidligere fredag ​​at bede dem om at hjælpe millioner af syriske flygtninge.

“Jo ældre hun bliver, jo mere alvorligt bliver hun, og hun er træt af Hollywood ting, ” den anden kilde sagde.

“Han ønsker at lave film. Hun gør ikke. Det er en fundamental forskel. Det er, hvordan du lever dit liv. ”

Gør tingene værre, Pitt er tættere på Jolies berømte skuespiller far, Jon Voight, end hun er, siger kilden.

“Jon er en Hollywood-fyr, og hun er blevet fremmedgjort. Brad hænger ud med sin far mere end hun gør, ” siger kilden.

En anden kilde fortæller TMZ, at Jolie mener, at hendes hendes husbond drikkeri og pot-rygning påvirker deres børn.

Tilføj til, at hans “vrede problem,” og mor til seks sagt nok er nok, fortalte kilden hjemmesiden.

Jolie søgte om skilsmisse mandag, citerer “uforenelige forskelle”.

Hun søger fysisk forældremyndighed over parrets børn, sagde TMZ. Hun vil ikke have Pitt at have fælles fysisk forældremyndighed, bare fælles forældremyndigheden. Han ville få visitation, ifølge hendes arkivering.

Jolie søger ikke ægtefællebidrag, hjemmesiden sagde.

Brangelina franske slot, Miraval – hvor parret blev gift i august 2014 – har været stille og roligt på markedet i et par måneder, og de lokale fik at vide, de solgte det, fordi de bryder op, fortalte en kilde The Post.

Jolie har hyret top gun Laura Wasser som hendes advokat.

De retsdokumenter liste parrets datoen for adskillelse som 15 sep 2016.

Parret har været sammen siden 2004.

In Campaign and Company, Ivanka Trump Has a Central Role

ivanka1-master675

It was a night to celebrate strong women. Amy Schumer was the host, Caitlyn Jenner was honored and the guests included Arianna Huffington, Madeleine Albright and the actress Reese Witherspoon.

They also included Ivanka Trump.

When the crowd at Glamour’s Women of the Year event on Nov. 9 sat down for dinner at the Rainbow Room, a person at Ms. Trump’s table asked the question that others were no doubt thinking: What would her father, who was being pilloried for remarks that struck many as misogynistic, make of her attending an event like this?

Ms. Trump quickly broke the strained silence by saying that she was her own person. Soon after, she and her friend Wendi Deng — Rupert Murdoch’s ex-wife — left.

A spokesman for Ms. Trump said she went home not because she was uncomfortable, but because it was late and she had two small children. But it was an awkward collision of the two worlds she inhabits: One as a 30-something Manhattan socialite and role model to young professional women, the other as Donald J. Trump’s oldest daughter, biggest champion and perhaps most valuable asset.

A lot of women have come and gone over the course of Mr. Trump’s life. But through his two high-profile divorces, numerous public romances and three marriages, Ivanka Trump has remained a constant.

In interviews, the Trumps, their friends and people who have done business with them described Donald’s and Ivanka’s relationship as especially close, with Ms. Trump holding an exalted position in the family, in their company, and even in the campaign.

Among the Trump children, she is the acknowledged favorite: “Daddy’s little girl,” as her older brother Donald Jr. once described her. When Ms. Trump and her father are not together, she said, they speak as often as five times a day.

In the Trump family business, he has given her a level of authority none of his wives, or for that matter executives, have ever had. She handles some of the Trump Organization’s biggest deals, including its acquisition of the Doral Resort in Miami, and its agreement to convert the Old Post Office building in Washington, D.C., into a luxury hotel.

And with Mr. Trump’s wife, Melania, the Slovenian former model, less than comfortable on stage, Ivanka Trump has served as a surrogate political spouse for a candidate who may need one more than anyone else in the race.

Cutting a starkly different image from Mr. Trump’s more combative and impulsive public supporters, like Chris Christie or Sarah Palin, not to mention the candidate himself, Ms. Trump, 34, radiates disciplined poise and practiced reserve. While her father uses Twitter as a grenade launcher, she treats her well-tended social media feeds, which are notably politics-free, as marketing tools for the Trump Organization and her own line of women’s clothing and accessories.

On March 15, with her father in the midst of a political clear-cutting through Florida while facing accusations of stirring up racially charged violence at his rallies, she posted a photograph on Instagram highlighting the @TrumpHotels creative team in Waikiki under a serene image of a woman relaxing in a sun-dappled pool.

It was a fitting image for a devoted daughter who exists as an almost surreally detached counterpoint to her father’s bellicosity, and yet may be his most important ally, particularly if he finds himself facing a Democratic opponent who aspires to be the first female president of the United States.

Ms. Trump tried to do damage control after her father seemed to have made reference to Megyn Kelly’s menstrual cycle. She was the unlikely star of a CNN town hall program last week with the Trump family, talking about how her father had encouraged and empowered her. And in a recent interview at Trump Tower, Ms. Trump attacked, however gently, her father’s critics.

“What bothers me is how rash people are to make claims as if they knew him and they knew his viewpoint on certain topics,” she said. “My father has an enormous heart and truly loves people — all people.”

Inside her father’s campaign, which has brazenly eschewed the advice of political experts, Ms. Trump is one of a few people who can, on occasion anyway, influence the candidate’s thinking. She failed to persuade Mr. Trump to apologize for accusing Mexico of sending its “rapists” over the border, according to a person close to Mr. Trump who declined to be named because he was not authorized to speak for the campaign. But, this person said, she successfully convinced her father to maintain his qualified support for Planned Parenthood in the face of Republican criticism.

“I think her father really listens to her, and when I say listens to her I mean I think her father respects her a great deal, and not just because she’s his daughter,” said Carl Icahn, a longtime friend of the Trump family. “I don’t say that lightly. I have a lot of wealthy friends who have kids and a few of them stand out, but not that many.”

Born to Run an Empire

Ms. Trump is the second of three children from Mr. Trump’s marriage to Ivana, a former model from the former Czechoslovakia. She was 8 when she learned about her father’s affair with Marla Maples from the horde of photographers waiting for her outside the Chapin School on the Upper East Side. “Love on the Rocks,” read the front page of the New York Daily News in the first of many stories about their contentious split.

In the public imagination, Mr. Trump had become a symbol of greed and excess. To Ms. Trump, he remained a doting father. And unlike Donald Jr., who did not speak to their father for a year, Ms. Trump never blamed him for the divorce.

At Chapin, a close friend recalled, Ms. Trump would check in with him almost every day, calling him — collect — from a pay phone tucked away in a janitor’s closet. On weekends, he often brought her to visit his various construction sites, or whisked her and her friends off to Palm Beach with him on his jet to play golf and order room service at Mar-a-Lago.

After eighth grade, Ms. Trump’s parents sent her to boarding school at Choate Rosemary Hall in Connecticut.

In college, she was featured prominently in the 2003 documentary “Born Rich,” as part of a cast of heirs and heiresses reflecting on their extreme privilege. Most of her co-stars spoke about the corrupting influence of wealth on their young lives. By contrast, Ms. Trump seemed to idealize her family, speaking about how proud she was of her parents and the Trump name, and showing off her childhood bedroom, with its sweeping view of Central Park.

“There was no hint of teenage rebellion on or off the screen,” recalled the film’s producer, Dirk Wittenborn. “She had a message to deliver and she delivered it.”

Ms. Trump sought a degree of independence, taking up modeling in part to have her own spending money. (“She’s got the best body,” Mr. Trump said of his daughter to Howard Stern in 2003. “She made a lot money as a model — a tremendous amount.”)

But she never strayed far from her father. After Ms. Trump’s sophomore year at Georgetown, she transferred to the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, his alma mater, majoring in real estate. She would soon go to work for the Trump Organization.

A childhood friend of Ms. Trump’s, Tamara Goldstein, remembers standing on the roof of Trump Tower with her in the summer of 2004, shortly after they had both graduated from college.

“How amazing is it that I have an opportunity to change the actual landscape of this skyline,” Ms. Goldstein recalled Ms. Trump saying.

Over the years, Ms. Trump began to assume more responsibility and autonomy within the family business.

“In the past, he’d have 10 deals going with lots of different lawyers and nondescript employees,” said Thomas Barrack, a real estate investor who sold the Plaza Hotel to Mr. Trump in 1988 and has remained close to the family since. “But nobody really had the authority to do anything. That all changed with Ivanka.”

Her father still has the final say over what to buy and how much to pay for it, but Ms. Trump now personally negotiates almost all of the company’s major deals.

“She is very, very trusted by me,” Mr. Trump said in an interview. “She has great real-estate instincts and great political instincts.”

Those who have sat across the table from her describe her as atypically calm and even-tempered in an industry often characterized by threats and bluster.

“She’s been thrust into this environment of high-testosterone real-estate males, and she never loses her cool,” said Michael Ashner, the chief executive of Winthrop Realty Trust, which sold the Doral to the Trump Organization in 2011 for $150 million.

In CNN’s Trump family interview last week, Ms. Trump cited her power within the family business to defend his attitude toward women. “So for me, his actions speak louder than the words of many politicians who talk about gender equality but it’s not evidenced in their daily employment practices,” she said.

Her style may be more low-key than her father’s, but like him, Ms. Trump has also been accused of engaging in hyperbole. A 2010 lawsuit claimed that she, as well as her father and older brother, had in public statements drastically overstated the number of units that had been sold in Trump SoHo to make the luxury condominium project appear financially healthier than it really was.

Mr. Trump and his co-defendants settled the case, agreeing to refund 90 percent of the plaintiffs’ deposits, while admitting no wrongdoing.

And Ms. Trump ran into some trouble with her own business recently, when 20,000 of her Ivanka Trump-brand scarves were recalled for violating the United States’ flammability standards. They, like some of her father’s own clothing products, were manufactured in China, the kind of outsourcing Mr. Trump is fond of criticizing on the stump.

From Park Avenue to Politics

Ms. Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, were married in 2009 at the Trump National Golf Course in New Jersey. To marry Mr. Kushner, Ms. Trump had converted to Judaism under an Orthodox rabbi, and she recalled her father wearing a skullcap beneath a huppah erected on the 18th green. Guests were given white flip-flops with the words “Jared” and “Ivanka” engraved on the insoles.

Mr. Kushner’s father, Charles Kushner, had also made a fortune in real estate and was a Democratic power broker in New Jersey. But he was perhaps better known for his fall than his rise. Not long before Jared Kushner and Ms. Trump met, Charles Kushner went to prison for tax fraud, election law violations and witness tampering. Among other things, he had hired a prostitute with a hidden camera to entrap his brother-in-law.

Ms. Trump and her husband now live in a penthouse on Park Avenue with their three young children. Jared Kushner is also doing his part to help sand his father-in-law’s rough edges. He has made phone calls on Mr. Trump’s behalf to influential Republicans, while the newspaper Mr. Kushner owns, The New York Observer, has been championing his candidacy.
