Donald Trump has lost his primary political ally, his daughter, who some claim was the only one who could reason with him.
Ivanka Trump declared on Tuesday that she will not support Donald Trump in his 2024 campaign for re-election. According to Ivanka, her first focus is raising the three children she has with her husband, Jared Kushner.
As you are aware, DT declared he will be running again on Tuesday night. Following that, Ivanka issued a statement in which she said, “I adore my father dearly. This time, I’ve made the decision to put my young children’s needs and the private life we’re building as a family first. I have no intention of participating in politics.”
She did provide a token compliment — “While I will always love and support my father, I will do it in a non-political manner moving ahead. I am thankful for the opportunity to have served the American people, and I will always be proud of the accomplishments of our administration.”
DT has key advisors Ivanka and Jared for the whole of his four years in office. The pair also contributed to DT’s presidential campaigns in 2016 and 2020.
Ivanka and Jared relocated to Miami’s prestigious Indian Creek Island after leaving the White House and Washington, D.C., and have largely remained out of the public eye with their kids, Arabella, 11, Joseph, 9, and Theodore, 6. But they’re all within walking distance of DT’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach.
Ivanka didn’t come up to DT’s presidential announcement on Tuesday night at Mar-a-Lago, but Jared did. Donald Trump Jr., who served as a key adviser to his father during his first term in office, was also missing in action. It’s believed that he was caught up in bad weather while on a hunting trip in the West. The youngest daughter of DT, Tiffany Trump, was also absent, but she had a valid reason as she had recently married.
Eric Trump, DT’s other son, was present, and 45 made a point of mentioning him throughout his address. Trump said that he and Eric were the victims of a flawed legal system.
