Ivanka Trump is not holding back in her first post-inauguration

interview, which will air Wednesday on ' CBS This Morning.'



In a preview of her sit-down with Gayle King, Ivanka responded to

critics who have criticized her for not standing up more for women's

rights and becoming 'complicit' in aiding the agenda of her father's

administration.



'If being complicit is wanting to, is wanting to be a force for good

and to make a positive impact then I'm complicit,' Ivanka tells King.



'I don't know that the critics who may say that of me, if they found

themselves in this very unique and unprecedented situation that I am

now in, would do any differently than I am doing.'



Ivanka then adds: 'So I hope to make a positive impact. I don't know

what it means to be complicit, but you know, I hope time will prove

that I have done a good job and much more importantly that my father's

administration is the success that I know it will be.'



The rest of Ivanka's interview and more will air on 'CBS This Morning'

Wednesday.



Tuesday was perhaps the biggest, and busiest, day of King's

journalistic career on Wednesday after scoring interviews with two

first daughters.



She kicked things off in New York City with a sit-down on CBS This

Morning with Chelsea Clinton, before heading down to the nation's

capital to chat with Ivanka Trump.



King, 62, was seen pulling up in front of Ivanka's $5.5million rental

home in the fashionable Kalorama neighborhood shortly after noon with

her crew and glam squad, who made their way one-by-one through a

thorough Secret Service pat down before heading inside.



Also joining King and her five-person team was 'CBS This Morning'

senior producer Chloe Arensberg, who is based in Washington DC, and

Brian Gottlieb, a producer for the 'CBS Evening News'.



The pair arrived ahead of Gayle and her team, and they were not the

only CBS names who were seen at Ivanka's house on Tuesday.



Vice President of CBS News Christopher Isham, who like Arensberg is

based in DC, also showed up for the interview.
