Ivanka Trump got a little personal with wealthy Republican donors at a mid-August fundraising retreat in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Or at least she flirted with intimacy. Asked by the moderator, former Entertainment Tonight host Mary Hart, what personality traits she inherited most from her parents, Ivanka Trump quickly said her mother set a strong example of how to be a successful and powerful woman, Politico reports. "And her father? He passed onto her his moral compass, she said, according to two event attendees."

President Trump is not generally known as a paragon of moral rectitude, but if this seems like too-good-to-check political gossip, Ivanka Trump said something similar in public, at the 2016 Republican National Convention, Politico notes. "My father taught my siblings and me the importance of positive values and a strong ethical compass," she said at the time.
