Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter of former president Donald Trump, has openly distanced herself from politics and promised never to serve as her father’s adviser again. However, in an unexpected turn of events, she appears to be gaining support within the Trump camp. Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, have recently been spotted at Trump-affiliated events, which has generated rumors about a future open reconciliation with the Trumps.
Ivanka and Jared reportedly watched the anti-child trafficking film “Sound of Freedom” at the Trump Bedminster golf club earlier this month, according to Vanity Fair. Particularly in light of Ivanka’s prior public comments regarding politics, this appearance as well as a number of other noticeable public appearances have drawn criticism. When she departed the Capitol in November of last year, she declared that she was “done” with the Capitol drama and that she “would never go back to being her father’s adviser.”
Ivanka kept a quiet profile in the months that followed her revelation, avoiding her father’s announcement of his 2024 presidential candidacy and even distancing herself from the family’s legal issues. She cut ties in April with the legal team defending her and her brothers in a fraud case launched by Letitia James, the attorney general of New York.
However, the Trump-Kushner family appears to be changing their political stance as Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign picks up steam and his poll numbers soar above those of his rival. Ivanka and Jared have reportedly become more prominent this summer, making events and demonstrating their support for the Trump team, according to a campaign adviser cited by Vanity Fair. They have been seen going to events, such as the party for her father’s birthday last month, and even entering meetings to say hi.
However abrupt the change of heart may have seemed, some insiders believe the Trump-Kushner family’s action may have been calculated. A former Trump administration insider told Vanity Fair, “Of course Jared is pretending he’s involved now that the president is 40 points ahead.” According to the insider, Jared would have to defend his ground if Donald Trump were to win the president again, particularly with regard to issues in the Middle East.
Lawyers for Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, and representatives of the Trump 2024 presidential campaign have not yet replied to requests from the media for comment while rumors about Ivanka’s probable return to the Trump camp are circulating.
Many people are curious about the Trump family’s future plans and how they will negotiate the complicated world of American politics in the wake of their family’s return to the national spotlight. All eyes will be on Ivanka and Jared as the 2024 presidential campaign picks up steam to see how they will handle their responsibilities in the Trump camp and whether they will completely support a public reunion with their father and his political ambitions. How this political tale plays out will only become clear with time.
