According to BusinessInsider, presidential daughters made a great impact on their fathers' political standing throughout history in the USA.
Ivanka Trump is set to be an influential first daughter — and she’s one of many in American history
She advised her father throughout the campaign, designed an equal-pay and childcare policy, took post-election phone calls with international leaders, and served on the transition team's Executive Committee.
But, while she will undoubtedly be impactful in the Trump administration, Ivanka is only one of the many first daughters who have influenced politics.
During the Watergate scandal, Richard Nixon's youngest daughter, Julie, went on a cross-country tour defending her father against corruption allegations.
According to the Associated Press, Julie gave over one hundred interviews in an attempt to clear her father's name and win back the favor of his supporters.
She even told reporters that President Nixon had considered resigning, but his family talked him out of it. Nixon, of course, ultimately did resign. Julie later wrote several books in hopes of restoring her family name.
Gerald Ford's only daughter, Susan, didn't influence politics so much as American culture during her stay in the White House.
According to People Magazine, Susan was well known for bursting into the Oval to ask for her allowance and hosting her High School prom in the East Room. But more importantly, she had a heavy impact on breast cancer awareness.
Susan's mother was diagnosed with breast cancer just weeks after Ford's inauguration. Susan served as the official White House hostess while her mother recovered from a mastectomy and later joined ranks with her mother to create social campaigns discussing the signs and symptoms of cancer.
According to Time Magazine, the Ford women's hard work and political platforms significantly helped the formation of the first annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Susan continues to work as a Breast Cancer Awareness activist today.
Theodore Roosevelt, asked about his rebellious socialite daughter, famously stated once, "I can be president of the United States, or I can control Alice. I cannot possibly do both."
Yet despite her difficulties, Roosevelt's beloved first daughter played a pivotal role in American foreign policy.
According to The New York Times and biographer James Bradley, the President sent Alice on a four-month tour of Asia along with several other diplomats and politicians that laid the groundwork for diplomacy, led to the end the Russo-Japanese war, and ultimately won Roosevelt a Nobel Peace Prize.
Most people had no idea Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a paraplegic, and that was due to his family.
Roosevelt relied heavily on his wife and sons, but it was his daughter, Anna, who helped run the White House for the last two years of his presidency.
Anna took on all tasks generally associated with the First Lady, managed FDR's poor health and served as his closest confidant, according to The Washington Post.
In fact, not only did she accompany her father when he met with Stalin, Churchill and other foreign leaders, Life Magazine described Anna's time in the White House in a 1945 issue as "Daddy's girl... running Daddy."
