From the White House to Wilder, Ivanka Trump sat down for an interview with Good Morning America, answering questions about Tuesday's visit to Idaho, its ties to her goals for America's future innovation, and how she believes service speaks louder than her voice coming out of Washington DC.

It’s an exclusive interview, only seen on ABC.

A powerful influence from the White House, making headlines in a small town, for a big reason.

Ivanka Trump venturing from Washington DC to Wilder, Idaho, highlighting a game-changing education for children in a struggling community.

"Sixty percent of the kids who go to school here don't have internet access in their homes," said Ivanka Trump, Advisor to the President.

Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, is teaming up with the first daughter and Advisor to the President, focusing on the impact collaboration with technology has on the success of America's future workforce.

"So, the fact that the private sector, in this case, Apple, has stepped in and provided technology, that opens up a universe to them, and you see them interacting with it in a way that stimulates passion and creativity, it's so deeply inspiring," said Trump.

That being one of her goals as a White House Advisor, promoting new technology and innovation in schools, but also retraining our country's workforce to adapt to a changing economic landscape.

It's a white house initiative that launched at the end of July.

"Over 6.5 million new job opportunities have been created by over 120 companies who have signed on and said, 'We want to be involved in retraining, up-skilling, re-skilling our workforce'," said Trump.

But surprisingly enough, few have heard details on the initiative. Whether due to an ever-divided country or her understanding that the most important voice out of the White House is that of the President.

"I wasn't elected. So, my perspective and opinion is not as relevant. What's relevant is the policies of the White House... I am part of a staff. He's the President. I'm part of a team," said Trump.

Ivanka Trump says she feels grateful that the president has allowed her to do the work she has been able to do.
