February 6, 2018 4:19 pm
Ivanka Trump is expected to travel to South Korea for the closing ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics.
The White House confirmed to BBC News that the first daughter will lead the US delegation in Pyeongchang.
She will also reportedly attend several of the sporting events leading up to the closing ceremony.
Meanwhile, Vice-President Mike Pence said he would not rule out talks with North Korea officials when he attends the Winter Olympics this week.
“I have not requested a meeting, but we’ll see what happens,” he told reporters in Alaska on Monday during a stopover on his way to Japan and South Korea.
Ms Trump tweeted her excitement last month about the Olympic games, which begin in Pyeongchang, South Korea on 8 February.
