Donald Trump’s oldest daughter Ivanka was notably absent from his bombshell 2024 presidential campaign announcement Tuesday night.
Ivanka, who previously served as a White House adviser, said she did not attend the Mar-a-Lago announcement because she does not plan to re-enter the political arena.
Ivanka’s statement comes after the New York Post reported that the president “spent part of daughter Tiffany’s lavish Mar-a-Lago wedding this past weekend trying to convince his much-loved elder daughter, Ivanka, and son-in-law Jared Kushner to be with him on stage” when he announced tonight.
“I love my father very much,” Ivanka said. “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.”
“While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena,” she continued. “I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and I will always be proud of many of our Administration’s accomplishments.”
“I’ve had many roles over the years but that of daughter is one of the most elemental and consequential,” she said. “I am loving this time with my kids, loving life in Miami and the freedom and privacy with having returned to the private sector. This has been one of the greatest times of my life.”
However, Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner who was instrumental in crafting the Abraham Accords was in attendance during Trump’s campaign kickoff.
