Apparently, rumors that Ivanka Trump may return to politics to help former President Donald Trump with his 2024 campaign, with or without her spouse Jared Kushner, have been greatly exaggerated.
According to the parenting website SheKnows, the former first daughter has no intention of returning to politics, possibly for a very specific and understandable reason.
Readers of Western Journal will recall that Ivana Trump, Donald Trump’s ex-wife and the mother of Ivanka Trump, died unexpectedly in a fatal accident last July. Unsurprisingly, her daughter’s sudden loss prompted her to reconsider her priorities.
“I think losing a parent definitely leads to a real awakening, that means different things for different people,” one unnamed “close friend” told the New York Post in November. “For Ivanka, it underscored how fleeting time is.”
“But with all the sadness that came from that time, the constant refrain in every story that she heard about her mother … was that she really lived: in work, personally and professionally; (and like Ivanka) she also left it all on the field,” the friend told the Post. “She was not waiting to have fun at a later date! She was definitely one of a kind and a true force of nature.”
A second individual described by the Post as a member of the Trumps’ inner circle stated that it was unlikely that Jared Kushner or his wife would ever return to political pursuits, in part due to the health concerns Kushner endured while serving in the White House.
“Going into government changed the trajectory of all of their lives, but they never expected to go into politics,” the second source said.
“Ivanka and Jared … were really specific they would not be coming back,” the source explained. “They feel like it was an amazing, extraordinary chapter in their lives — but their exit was not triggered by one thing.”
In what Fox News characterized as a “exclusive interview” in November, Ivanka Trump made a statement that was identical to one she published on social media around the time Fox’s story went live.
“I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family. I do not plan to be involved in politics,” she told Fox News and posted to Instagram.
“While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena,” Fox quoted her as telling them exclusively. “I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and will always be proud of many of our administration’s accomplishments.”
Trump’s spouse, Jared Kushner, and her brother’s fiancée, Kimberly Guilfoyle, attended the event where former President Donald Trump announced his third run for the presidency. Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. were not in attendance.
Tiffany Trump, who was married over the Veterans Day weekend, did not attend her father’s Mar-a-Lago announcement ceremony.
