New information has come to light in regard to Ivanka Trump's possible role in President Donald Trump's decision to launch an airstrike against Syria this past week.

In an interview with the Telegraph, Eric Trump alleged that his sister, Ivanka, may have played a part in their father's decision to move forward with the recent bombing:

“Ivanka is a mother of three kids and she has influence. I’m sure she said: 'Listen, this is horrible stuff.'”

President Trump himself echoed these sentiments in regard to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's recent chemical attack on his own people, emphasizing the loss of children's lives, saying:

“It was a slow and brutal death for so many, even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror.”

Trump's second son would then go on to defend his father's actions this past Thursday:

“And by the way, he was anti doing anything with Syria two years ago. Then a leader gasses their own people, women and children. At some point America is the global leader and the world's superpower has to come forward and act and they did with a lot of support of our allies and I think that's a great thing.”

Ivanka Trump's potential involvement in this affair could bring the scope of her recently announced role as the Assistant to the President into question. While an official — and unpaid — position, many of her duties and responsibilities have yet to be expounded upon.
