Ivanka Trump Spoke To Astronauts In Space. This Was Her Message
Adviser to President of The United States on job creation, economic development and entrepreneurship -- this is what it says on Ivanka Trump's Facebook page. While the credentials to her name seem like a "dream" job by itself, Ivanka Trump today confessed that her dream was to actually be an astronaut.
US President Donald Trump's daughter was touring the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston today, where she had a telephonic conversation with the crew onboard the International Space Station.
"You actually have my dream job, I always wanted to be an astronaut. I always want to go to space," Ivanka Trump was quoted as telling the astronauts according to reports.

The first daughter spoke to the six astronauts aboard the ISS, and told them of her dreams of being in space and took the opportunity to thank them for their service.
Along with the live chat with the astronauts, Ivanka Trump toured a mock-up of the ISS and checked out the space suits where she was caught high-fiving a space suit.
"Dream realised," she tweeted along with a video of her tour of the mock-up ISS.
