In her statement, Trump promised to donate "the unpaid portion" of her advance and any future royalties to the Ivanka M. Trump charitable fund, which will initially make grants of $100,000 each to the National Urban League and Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Trump has come under intense scrutiny over potential overlap between the policies she plans to promote in office and any potential benefit to her businesses.

IVANKA TRUMP has been clear about her reasons for pulling out of her forthcoming tour for the book she penned prior to her father, Donald, becoming president a year ago, telling People that she doesn't want it to become a conflict of interest having officially joined the Trump administration. "I wrote it at a different time in my life, from the perspective of an executive and an entrepreneur, and the manuscript was completed before the election last November", the First Daughter wrote.

As for what will happen to the proceeds and profits from the books sales, well, Ivanka didn't say, but those finances could prove problematic, since ethics rules prevent Ivanka from profiting off her position as a senior adviser to the President, a role she made official just last month by staking out a spot in the West Wing.

She will also forgo a book publicity tour to avoid using her government perch to promote her private product, the New York Times reported.

"It is my honest hope that "Women Who Work" serves as a powerful resource and that the book proceeds further benefit women and girls through the great work of the National Urban League and Boys & Girls Clubs of America", she wrote.

The White House said Ivanka planned to give up some income, minimize certain assets, and promised she will recuse herself from policy matters that may pose conflict of interest concerns. Now she will be forgoing her book tour in favor of generally cropping up slightly behind people in awkward White House photos.
