to that, but that's really up to her. and good evening again, you've just been watching the cnn special report, "first daughter ivanka trump." in terms of ivanka trump, she doesn't have an actual official title, correct? >> no, not yet. >> in the white house. but clearly she has an important role for donald trump. i mean, she's somebody who has his ear and is a very, is a major buzz. >> we don't know if she's going to have an office in the west wing. she's decided at least now, let jared go work there, but eventually whether she's inside the white house or remains outside the white house, she is going to be her father's gut check. there's no doubt about it. he leans on her. he listens to her. she offers her advice freely. they don't always agree, as she said, in the piece. but i think she will always be there when he, when he wants
6:31 pm
somebody to say, what do you think about this? because she is so loyal, and she has no other agenda as family members are. that is what he thinks is so important. >> well, and obviously, he prizes loyalty. some have been critical of the role jared kushner, ivanka trump play, why shouldn't a president have people who he feels are loyal to him and who are more loyal than his kids? and other people, bill clinton leaned on hillary clinton to do health care. >> that's right. and ronald reagan leaned on nancy reagan. but, if you recall, there were an awful lot of problems inside the white house, because people went to nancy reagan to get to the president. and they didn't want to get on nancy reagan's bad side. so if you're in a meeting and you are the white house chief of staff reince priebus or you're with jared kushner or ivanka trump and the president, it's very difficult to disagree some
6:32 pm
would say. because they are first among equal, and i think this can cause a problem in the white house. ivanka for now, though, is backing off, dealing with heresh us behind the scenes. she's dealing with people behind us on capitol hill about child care, tax credits and heresh issues, but on a personal level, i think she will be one of the last voices the president listens to when he needs to make decisions. >> gloria borger, thank you very much. from one upcoming first daughter to the two who are now leaving, a look back at sasha and malia's time in the white house and where they go from hire. and a major development in the orlando mass killings, police have attacked the attacker's widow. then i found aleve pm. the only one to combine a safe sleep aid plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. now i'm back. aleve pm for a better am.

well, ivanka trump will soon be a very different kind of first daughter, no doubt about it. we'll be watching her work with her daughter, about her policy positions, it's a sharp contrast to how we saw the outgoing first daughters which certainly makes sense. eight years ago, sasha and malia obama were still very young for policy-making. more from randi kaye on that. >> daddy, what city are you in? >> reporter: they were 7 and 10. two little girls from chicago who captured the nation's heart in a moment. they were officially introduced at the democratic national convention. >> i love you, daddy.
6:37 pm
>> reporter: and on election night, they were at their father's side celebrating. with their move to washington, d.c., the obama girls became the youngest children to live in the white house in decades. >> i joke that my first job is going to be mom in chief. because with little kids i have to make sure that their feet are on the ground. >> reporter: they ascended sidwell friends school. their parents insisted they do their own homework, make their own bed and pick up after their puppy beau. >> we don't let them watch tv or use the computer except to do their homework during the week. >> reporter: sasha signaled her approval. years later, in 2013, there was the yawn seen around the world, sasha caught on camera during her father's second inaugural speech. after he took the official oath of office that year camera microphones picked up sasha telling her dad, good job.
6:38 pm
you didn't mess up. older sister malia liked to needle her dad, too, in one case, giving him advice about how to greet her friends. >> he's like hi, and he shook her hand, and i was like, you know, daddy, you really don't shake kids' hands that much. >> reporter: over the years, the girls enjoyed the privileges that came along with being first daughters. flying on air force one. front row seats for selfies at inaugural parades and singing christmas carols with justin bieber and other celebrities. there were also trips around the world. london and milan. and china. in south africa, they visited nelson mandela, they are now 15 and 18. malia not her driver's license after being taught to drive by the secret service. there was even talk about her dating. >> datedates, that's fine.
6:39 pm
she has secret service. >> sasha will finish out high school at sidwell friends. their dad paid tribute to them in his final public speech in chicago. >> of all i have done in my life. i am most proud to be your dad. >> reporter: randi kaye, cnn, new york. >> two young women we have watched become young women. perspective from douglas brinkley along with dana bash. the obama daughters spend their childhoods growing up in the white house and as much as the press tries to give them space, it's pressure. >> even though they were born in chicago, it's not their hometown, washington, d.c. is. in some ways it will still be. sasha will continue to go to school here. this is all they know and imagine, a childhood with secret service, whether you were in the
6:40 pm
treehouse or wandering the lawn or on a date, someone was watching you. >> it was an interesting detail, the secret service teaching her how to drive. >> when they called her radiance, the secret service. that was her nickname. i thought that was one of the better nicknames the secret service has ever given to someone, because she so radiant when you see her. >> i think i saw michelle obama talking to yoe praoprah saying e didn't allow the kids to complain about being in the white house at their age, because it's such a stroord experience. >> yeah. absolutely. and it's one thing to say that and to have that rule. but neither of you have this experience. i do, i was a teenage girl. and it's hard enough without the cameras on you. we saw amy carter, chelsea clinton and now the obama daughters go through this, those tough years, never mind the
6:41 pm
transformation, but the way that girls and boys, but particularly girls are so, you know, upset about everything that goes on and to have tspotlight on you i pretty remarkable and to watch the way they have done so well, and we don't know what goes on behind closed doors. >> you think about the social media, which is such a huge difference than my generation. and that they were able to avoid, you know, some sort of social media disaster of, you know, instagram or twitter or whatever. >> that's so true. >> barak and michelle obama are amazing parents. one of the finest things they did was showing america how to raise kids in such a difficult circumstance. they're a beloved first family. that's going to continue. they never seem to have the
6:42 pm
angan aan angst. some of ronald reagan's kids were at war, loggerheads, we've seen or felt any of that. >> one of the things for president obama but president-elect trump, you know, even people who disagree with donald trump even during the campaigns would point to his kids as being, you know, amazing representatives of him and the family. >> mm-hm. >> i thought that clip of you they just showed on the documentary of ivanka when you were interviewing trump and the trump family was one of trump's better moments. unbelievable. because he kind of was quiet and stayed back a little and let the family dynamic play out, and i thought that really gave limbhi bounce. >> and with all politicians, particularly presidents, since they are in our living rooms every day, the fact that they have families make them relatable, when they have families who are seemingly
6:43 pm
successful and sweet and, you know, people who we look up to and want our daughters and sons to be like, it's a good thing. these people are human beings. and the fact that we saw that documentary from gloria on ivanka and we're talking about barak and michelle obama kids. >> and george w. bush's kids wrote that letter to sasha and malia for making an adjustment outside the bubble for the first time in their lives. dana, thanks, coming up. complaints filed against steve mnuchin, alleging he once owned a bank that may have discriminated against minorities. he's not the only trump administration pick under fire. and later, the wife of the orlando shooter has been arrested. what did she know about the killings? details ahead.

remembering him at all tonight. if captain cernan had his wish, he would not be famous for being the last person to whack on the moon 4 1/2 decades ago. by now, he'd be one of many. perhaps one day soon, he will. our thoughts are with him, his family and his friends, that does it for us. thanks for watching.
