Spokespersons for President Donald Trump and First Daughter Ivanka Trump are the only three people on the first-in-the-nation primary state to hold an official political job.
The candidates have been in the spotlight for the past two weeks for their stances on the 2016 election and their respective roles in it.
The Associated Press named them to its 2016 “30 Under 30” list for their role in Trump’s election victory.
They’re not the only high-profile women on the list, however.
There’s the First Daughter, who holds a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Miami, and First Woman, who was previously a teacher and is currently an attorney.
But they’re the only women of color on the top spot, as well as the only candidates who are currently working in the public sector.
The top 10 women in the U.S. are: -The Spokespeople for the First Family, who is married to First Lady Melania Trump.
-The First Lady, who married her husband, President Donald J. Trump.
The Spoutspersons are a group of women who work in the White House, State Department, White House communications, and various other positions.
In their role, they are tasked with managing White House events, planning speeches, and leading administration communications, among other duties.
The Spoutspeople are also responsible for developing the official White House position statements and making them available to the public.
-Cindy Crouch, the Spoutsperson for Education for the Secretary of Education, the Vice President for Education, and National Public Policy for the Department of Education.
-Lisa L. Korn, the Deputy Spoutspringsperson for Public Liaison for the Office of Science and Technology Policy.
-Lorraine T. Stahl, the Executive Spoutspartner for Education and the Assistant Spoutsponsor for Education Policy and Planning.
-Christina R. Gorman, the Senior Spoutsparty Coordinator for the State Department.
-Michelle B. Schmitz, the Associate Spoutspress Spoutsspeaker for Education.
The Spinspersons were part of the White Houses 2016 “2020 Strategy” released in May.
In it, the Trump administration pledged to invest in higher education, including expanding Pell Grants, expanding apprenticeship programs, and creating more “sophisticated” schools and colleges, among others.
“We will be investing in education,” said the WhiteHouse.gov.
“And that will not just be for low-income kids, it will also be for kids who can’t afford college, for people who are not yet ready to enter the workforce, and for people from all walks of life.”
The document also outlined an overhaul of the Department for Education that included expanding Pell grants, offering loans to students with disabilities, and establishing a “national apprenticeship workforce.”
The White House also called for a new “College Ready” initiative, and a $10 billion plan to expand college and career preparation for low income and minority students.
And the White house also said it was investing $100 million in the 2020-21 National Center for Teaching Excellence and $1 billion for the first of three new National Institutes of Health Career Centers to expand the skills of teachers and train the next generation of leaders.
The White House has also committed to doubling its investment in higher ed by 2024.
In the next five years, the Whitehouse said it would invest an additional $1.8 billion to support higher education and the development of more apprenticeships.
“The first priority of the Trump Administration is to invest more in education and prepare our young people for the job market, and to make sure that every American has access to the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the workforce,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a statement.
“The WhiteHouse has also pledged to spend $100 billion over five years to strengthen our workforce and ensure that every student has access the information and skills that will help them succeed in school, in life, and in the workplace.”
But while the White houses focus is on education, there’s a major difference between the two.
The Trump administration has pledged to eliminate the $1,500 cap on tuition, which has driven up tuition for some students.
While the cap has driven tuition to astronomical levels, many families are able to afford the education required for that cap, according to the Washington Post.
For the average student, the $2,700 cap would be the equivalent of a $500-a-year increase in tuition.
While the cost of college has skyrocketed over the last decade, the costs of attending the nation’s colleges and universities have remained the same.
The average cost of attending a public four-year college or university in 2020 was $22,100, according the Department.
