(CBS4) – Presidential advisor and First Daughter Ivanka Trump spent Monday morning at Lockheed Martin’s Colorado offices in Jefferson County as part of her focus on apprenticeships.
“[Ivanka Trump] is in Denver today with Lockheed CEO Marillyn Hewson to visit with workers and ‘for a roundtable discussion on the company’s workforce development and apprenticeship programs in Colorado,'” White House officials tweeted Monday.
