Rex Tillerson rejected many of her requests while he was secretary of state, the book said, prompting Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to invite cabinet-level officials along to justify such trips, The Times reported on Monday night.
'You've got to be insane, ' Cohn is said to have told Kushner.
Ricardel later left the White House to "transition to a new role within the administration", according to the White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Ivanka and Jared, however, appear to have outlived those intentions, and Trump's desire to oust them from the White House "has come and gone in waves", associates claimed, as cited by the NYT.
'They talk to you as if they grew up in an ivory tower, which they did - but they have no idea how normal people perceive, understand, intuit, ' a person close to the White House legal team told Ward, adding that they seemed like 'the type of people who, if you don't pretty much indicate quickly that you're happy to shove your head up their ass, you're immediately a threat'.
'She thinks she's going to be president of the United States, ' Cohn says.
"My dad's not a racist; he didn't mean any of it", Ivanka allegedly said in a meeting at the White House with former economic adviser Gary D. Cohn.
Cohn then instructed the aide to bring the letter to White House counsel Don McGahn, who freaked out when he learned the letter had been sent to the wrong printer.
At issue were a set of emails contradicting a statement Donald Trump Jr. gave to the New York Times, in which he described his contact with the Russians as "a short, introductory meeting" during which he, Kushner, and Trump's campaign chairman at the time, Paul Manafort, "primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children".
White House senior advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and son-in-law, sought to assert some authority over flights funded by the State Department, according to a new book by journalist Vicky Ward.
According to the book, Kelly told the president at the time that it would be problematic to fire them but later agreed with Trump that they "would make life hard enough to force the pair to offer their resignations".
"Every point that Ms. Ward mentioned in what she called her "fact checking" stage was entirely false", spokesman Peter Mirijanian said.
Ward countered on Twitter "the 220 people I interviewed for the book might beg to disagree". The author, on her own website, listed this book in the category of "fiction" - until recently changing it.
