There’s been plenty of chatter, though few hard details, about the roles that members of President-elect Donald Trump’s family will play in the White House once he takes the oath of office on Jan. 20 — or even whether some immediate family members will make it to the White House at all.

But unlike her predecessors who weren’t the wife of the president, Ivanka appears poised to be an adviser, advocate and hostess all at once. Which could revolutionize the role — and make her the most powerful first lady ever.

Nigel Farage believes there could one day be another Trump in the White House — Ivanka. Asked who was his favorite member of the Trump family, Farage didn’t miss a beat, responding: “Oh, Ivanka.” Oh my goodness gracious me,” he said. “Thirty-six, beautiful, utterly brilliant and given that we’ve had a Clinton dynasty and a Bush dynasty, she may well be president of the U.S. in 15-20 years’ time.”

Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, hit the campaign trail outside Philadelphia on Thursday to call for more civility online, in an appeal to suburban women voters with just five days left until the U.S. presidential election. American “culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teachers,” Melania Trump said in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, lamenting cyber-bullying in particular.

In an interview with TIME Editor Nancy Gibbs at the Fortune Most Powerful Women’s conference, Trump appeared calm and poised but revealed very little about her reaction to her father’s recent campaign struggles. When asked directly about her father’s “locker room” talk, his claims that the election will be “rigged” and the massive gender gap between Trump voters and Hillary Clinton voters, Ivanka Trump mostly gave answers about her closeness with her father, their family business and her own brand.

For the first time Ivanka Trump, who has been a major fixture in her father’s efforts to reach out to women voters, publicly addressed the lewd comments Donald Trump made during a 2005 taping of Access Hollywood. “My father’s comments were clearly inappropriate and offensive and I’m glad that he acknowledged this fact with an immediate apology to my family and the American people,” the Republican nominee’s eldest daughter said in a statement to Fast Company that was published Monday.
