Ivanka Trump was a trustee for Rupert Murdoch’s daughters’ and oversaw their $300M worth of shares in News Corp and Fox

  • Ivanka Trump was part of a five-person board who oversaw the $300m trust  of Grace and Chloe Murdoch
  • The daughter of President Trump has always been close to Wendi Deng, the mother of Chloe and Grace,  who are 13 and 15 respectively
  • She was one of the select guests who attended the girls’ 2010 baptism ceremony in the River Jordan  
  • Ivanka stepped down from her position on the trust in late December
  • It was reported last month that Rupert Murdoch ‘requested restrictions on AT&T’s proposed purchase of Time Warner’ to President Trump
  • Murdoch had previously made an attempt to purchase Time Warner 

Ivanka Trump was one of five people on a board tasked with overseeing the trusts of Grace and Chloe Murdoch, the two daughters of her friend Wendi Deng and Rupert Murdoch.

The Financial Times revealed Ivanka’s role in looking after the estimated $300million in shares that the two teenagers have in their father’s company companies 21st Century Fox and News Corp.

A rep for Ivanka later confirmed this, stating that she was a part of the trustee board both during and after the election, stepping down from her role at the end of December.

This example of the close ties between the Trump and Murdochs comes one month after New York reported that Rupert ‘requested restrictions on AT&T’s proposed purchase of Time Warner’ to President Trump.

Murdoch had previously made an attempt to purchase Time Warner.

Iavnka and husband Jard Kushner were also part of the select group invited to Jordan in 2010 for Chloe and Grace’s baptism, who are now 13 and 15 respectively.

They attended the event alongside Queen Rania and the girls’ godparents Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman.

The two girls were baptized in the River Jordan at the same site where Jesus Christ is said to have undergone the sacred ceremony.

Others who attended the baptism ceremony included Google co-founder Larry page and his wife, Lucy; former Viacom head Tom Freston and his then-wife Kathy; and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Blair, another of the of the godparents to the girls, was not featured in a Hello spread of the baptism.

Guests at the event all wore white for the ceremony.

Ivanka wrote on Twitter at the time about how much she was enjoying the trip.

‘Just landed in Jordan…heading to the dead sea for the day,’ wrote Ivanka in March 2010 just before the festivities.

She later shared a photo of the sunset, along with a fun fact.

‘Fun Fact: The Dead Sea is 1,385 ft (422 meters) below sea level making it the lowest elevation on the earth’s surface on dry land,’ wrote Ivanka.

Wendi and Ivanka have been incredibly close for years, and just before Ivanka left for DC Murdoch’s ex-wife hosted a dinner for her at her $34m penthouse.

It was at that dinner that Ivanka spoke about how she planned to work on women’s issues once she entered the White House.

Soon after she stepped down from her role in the Trump Organization and overseeing her eponymous fashion line.

It is also Wendi who is said to have reunited Ivanka and her now-husband after the two split early into their relationship.
