(Newser) – As of Monday morning, you can add Ivanka Trump to the list of people getting protection from the Secret Service this election cycle. The service confirmed Trump's eldest daughter will be getting protection, USA Today reports. Trump himself, as well as wife Melania, already have a protective Secret Service detail; it's not clear whether any of Trump's other kids will be getting one. Interestingly, over the weekend, Trump suggested that since Hillary Clinton "doesn't want guns," her security team's guns should be taken away. As for Ivanka Trump, she met with Paul Ryan Monday and will be meeting with a group of female Republican senators and House members Tuesday. (Read more Ivanka Trump stories.)
