Ivanka Trump Charms South Korea as She Arrives for the Olympics

Politics - Inside Edition Staff

Ivanka Trump is on the charm offensive in South Korea.

The first daughter arrived Friday after flying commercial on Korean Air from Washington D.C., to Seoul.

Ivanka, who traveled with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, showed no sign of jet lag after the 14-hour flight, looking chic in a black-and-white houndstooth coat with a white turtleneck sweater.

"It's a great honor to be here in South Korea with the U.S. delegation," Ivanka told the crowd that had gathered for her arrival. "We are very excited to attend the 2018 Winter Olympic Games to cheer for team USA and to reaffirm our strong and enduring commitment with the people of the Republic of Korea."

She later changed into a black dress for dinner with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and First Lady Kim Jung-sook. She enjoyed a kosher, vegetarian meal of grilled tofu with "special marinade."

She later thanked the couple in a tweet.

On Saturday, Ivanka will cheer on Team USA during the final day of competition before heading to Sunday's closing ceremony. She is expected to smooth some tensions that flared during the vice president's visit last week.
