Donald Trump is again running for US President, but his favorite daughter does not want to support him in the election campaign. The United States is now speculating about the reasons.
Donald Trump wants to go back to the White House. The 76-year-old former US president announced this to invited guests during an appearance at his private residence in Florida. His wife, Melania, and son, Eric Trump, were at his side for his impressive performance. The Republican also mentioned both in his speech. Trump Jr. missed the performance due to the cancellation of the trip. It wasn’t unusual either. Another family member caused a stir that evening: “first daughter” Ivanka Trump. She was absent from the ballroom at Mar-a-Lago.
It was no coincidence that the 41-year-old did not appear at her father’s night. As Ivanka herself announced on Instagram, she doesn’t want to be part of Team Trump’s second attempt. Since then, there has been speculation in the United States about why Ivanka Trump did not support her father on the campaign trail. Even a former advisor to the former United States President believes she may have provided information to the FBI.
During Trump’s first term from 2017 to 2021, Ivanka Trump served as a presidential advisor and has been described as a rising star in American politics. She was in the spotlight, often giving speeches to her father. Her husband, Jared Kushner, also served as a close advisor to the then president.
Ivanka Trump: I will support my father outside of politics
“I love my dad very much. However, this time around I chose to prioritize my young children and the personal life we are building as a family. I have no plans to get into politics,” Trump’s daughter wrote in her letter now. The Instagram story was deleted in response to the speculation. She will support her father outside of politics in the future. “I am grateful for the honor of serving the American people and will always be proud of what our administration has accomplished,” the statement read.
And the American CNN news channel quoted an anonymous source close to the family as saying: “She knows that at this stage there is nothing that serves her or her family.” Ivanka never wants to go back to this life.
The New York Post reported that Trump tried to convince his daughter and son-in-law Jared Kushner of his plans at the wedding of his youngest daughter, Tiffany. The report said he literally begged the couple when he announced he would be on stage. An unidentified source was quoted as saying, “Trump thought he could get Ivanka to come back and campaign for him this weekend because she was his most requested speaker last time.” According to the report, the two resisted his request, which caused tensions behind the scenes.
Another New York Post report quoted an anonymous source as saying the reasons for Ivanka Trump’s withdrawal: “Ivanka hated all the criticism and threats and was unhappy that many of her friends turned their backs on them.” Trump now wants a “normal life.”
Cohen: I think Jared and Ivanka are moles
In an interview with the American station MSNBC, Donald Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, put forward a bold thesis: “I think Jared and Ivanka may be the moles,” he said, referring to the raid on Trump about three months ago. Apparently, Cohen believes that Ivanka may have given information to the FBI. When detectives searched Mar-a-Lago, they discovered classified government documents.
According to Cohen, the reason could also be simple: the two would have made about US$640 million during their time in Washington. Additionally, Donald Trump pardoned Kushner’s father, Charles. The couple got what they wanted.
Republican support for Trump is waning
Trump is embroiled in various legal disputes – over the seizure of classified government documents, the Capitol attack, questionable business practices, and over his attempts to retroactively overturn the results of the 2020 election. He lost the 2020 election to Democrat Joe Biden. To this day, he has not conceded his electoral defeat. Just last week, he announced that he wants to run again as a Republican in the 2024 election.
