Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump enlisted the services of Risa Heller, a New York City public relations figure known for her work with Democrats -- including former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Gov. David Paterson (D-NY) -- when they came to Washington to take up their official posts in the Trump White House, according to a report in Buzzfeed.
The revelation came amid reports that a New York City set with a history of friendly ties to the Democratic party is gaining traction in President Donald Trump's White House, much to the chagrin of conservative commentators.
Members of the Kushner family itself donated large sums to Democratic causes until a few years ago, and Jared has reportedly been accused of being "a Democrat" by more nationalist and populist factions within the White House. Another oft-cited member of this NYC-clique is the Director of Trump's National Economic Council, registered Democrat and former Goldman Sachs executive Gary Cohn.
Asked by Buzzfeed about her choice, Ivanka responded in a statement, "Risa is incredibly talented, driven and passionate. She is a formidable advocate and respected by all as a trustworthy and honest broker of facts."
Her husband Jared echoed her sentiments. "She's the best fighter in the business, is universally respected, and most importantly has always told me what she really thinks, good or bad," he said.
