Just hours after former US President Donald Trump officially announced his candidacy for the 2024 presidential elections, his daughter Ivanka said that she would not participate in her father’s election campaign and that she “does not plan to enter political life”.
According to CNN, Ivanka Trump said in a statement, “I love my father very much, and this time I choose to prioritize my young children and my family. I do not plan to enter politics. While I will always love and support my father, I will do so outside of the political arena from now on. I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and will always be proud of many of the accomplishments of our administration.”
Since Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden, Ivanka, her husband Kushner and their children have moved to a separate mansion in Florida.
Ivanka, her husband Kushner and their children have moved to a separate mansion in Florida since Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden.
In her new book, New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman said that Trump nearly kicked his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Kushner out of the White House in a 2017 tweet.
“Trump was about to tweet that his daughter and son-in-law were leaving the White House, but then-Chief of Staff John Kelly stopped him, telling Trump that he should talk to them directly first,” Haberman writes in her book.
According to the book, Trump never spoke to Ivanka and Kushner about it, and both remained White House aides until the end of his tenure.
The book says Trump often criticized Kushner and once described him as “talking like a child” after listening to a public speech he gave in 2017.
Trump has denied that he ever considered removing Ivanka and her husband from the White House, saying the allegations were “just an illusion” and that such a thought “never occurred to him”.
