President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump is to have an office in the White House, her lawyer says.

The 35-year-old will have security clearance and access to classified information, but no official title or salary when she works in the West Wing.

Ivanka will serve as her father's "eyes and ears" while providing broad-ranging advice, her attorney told Politico.

Ms Trump, who owns a fashion brand, will join husband Jared Kushner, who is a senior adviser to the president.

Ivanka said in a statement: "While there is no modern precedent for an adult child of the president, I will voluntarily follow all of the ethics rules placed on government employees.

"I will continue to offer my father my candid advice and counsel, as I have for my entire life."

After her husband Jared Corey Kushner's White House appointment was announced, Ms Trump said she would focus on settling her family in Washington rather than work for the administration.

Ms Trump's lawyer, Jamie Gorelick, told AP news agency: "Our view is that the conservative approach is for Ivanka to voluntarily comply with the rules that would apply if she were a government employee, even though she is not."

But some have criticised the decision to give her a White House position, even though she will have no actual job title.

According to Andrew Herman, an attorney who has advised lawmakers on ethics issues, said: "I think the right way to do that is to make her a special government employee.

"But that implicates all kind of formal and disclosure issues."

The political influence of Ivanka and her husband has raised questions about possible conflicts of interests.

My opinion- Trump is slowly introducing Ivanka as the next and first female future president come 2024 if he wins re-election in 2020. Ivanka can then claim she is well experienced because she has security clearance and knows everything about keeping America safe and great.

Donald Trump is using his power and influence to offer good jobs and unfairadvantages to members of his family.

Is this nepotism or what?
