Ivanka Trump doesn't plan a traditional publicity tour for her new book, "Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules of Success," out yesterday. Per AP's Catherine Lucey: "Trump has stressed that the book is a personal project written before her father, Donald Trump, was elected president in November. ... Citing federal ethics rules, she has said ... she wanted to 'avoid the appearance of using my official role to promote the book.'"

  • Ivanka Trump tweeted on Monday and Tuesday from her personal account about the book, noting the charities that will "receive grants" from book proceeds.
  • "Jamie Gorelick, an attorney for Trump, said she had received advice from the Office of Government Ethics that she could use her personal social media accounts to post about the book."

The narrative, from a New York Times front-pager: "By inserting herself into a scalding set of gender dynamics, she is becoming a proxy for dashed dreams of a female presidency and the debate about President Trump's record of conduct toward women and his views on them. Critics see her efforts as a brash feat of Trump promotion ... by a woman of extraordinary privilege who has learned that feminism makes for potent branding."

The childless vaccine

It'll likely be a long time before children are vaccinated against COVID-19, even though vaccinating kids could eventually play an integral role in reducing the virus' spread.

The big picture: None of the leading contenders in the U.S. are being tested for their effectiveness in children. Even once one of them gains authorization from the Food and Drug Administration, there will only be a limited number of available doses.

Progressives bide time for a Biden victory

Progressive Democrats want to beat President Trump so badly that they're tabling their apathy about Joe Biden — organizing hard to get him into office, only to fight him once elected.

Why it matters: That's a big difference from 2016, when progressives’ displeasure with Hillary Clinton depressed turnout and helped deliver the White House to Trump.

Election influence operations target journalists

Foreign and domestic actors looking to influence the 2020 election are trying to trick real reporters into amplifying fake storylines. This tactic differs from 2016, when bad actors used fake accounts and bots to amplify disinformation to the population directly.

Why it matters: The new strategy, reminiscent of spy operations during the Cold War, is much harder for big tech platforms to police and prevent.
