(Republican Leader) – Something that has been on the minds of many Americans, particularly Trump supporters, is whether or not former President Donald Trump’s children will follow in his footsteps and run for office or perhaps have a role in their father’s administration should he win the White House in 2024.
Donald Trump Jr. seems like the kind of guy who has a definite interest in running one day, but what may surprise folks is that there are rumors floating around that his sister, Ivanka Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner, might be headed for the campaign trail as well.
According to a piece from Kevin Haggerty over at BizPac Review, the couple has been spotted more frequently over the course of the summer months.
“Last November, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were notably absent from the former president’s announcement that he was launching another bid for his second term in office. Now, repeated sightings of the power couple in close proximity to the one-time commander-in-chief have spurred suggestions of a reentry into politics,” Haggerty wrote. “Late last month, Vanity Fair spoke with sources with regard to Ivanka’s appearance at her father’s June birthday dinner and the pair’s attendance at a special screening of the film “Sound of Freedom” at Trump’s Bedminster, New Jersey golf club.”
“They’ve been spotted more frequently this summer. They’ve made it clear they’re supportive. They pop into meetings to say hi,” a campaign strategist remarked to Gabriel Sherman.
The magazine then went on to say, “The couple has publicly steered clear of politics, but some recent sightings have Trumpworld buzzing,” a former administration official revealed concerning Kushner’s possible involvement, “If [Trump’s] president again, Jared needs to protect his turf.”
The Daily Mail reached out to individuals who are close with the couple and found out that, despite so many rumors stating otherwise, the appearance was not political, just familial in nature.
“Jared and Ivanka are not looking to be in politics and they enjoy spending their summers in Bedminster with Ivanka’s father and their kids as they always have,” it was stated. “They continue to maintain a close personal relationship.”
“That had played out earlier this year when she had shared photos of her father holding a special celebration to mark the birthday of his granddaughter Arabella ahead of her Bat Mitzvah,” Haggerty said in the article.

Back in November, Ivanka Trump put out a statement that read, “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,” her father put out his own statement saying she was planning to stay “outside the political arena.”

“Contrary to Fake News reporting,” he commented in a post published on Truth Social. “I never asked Jared or Ivanka to be part of the 2024 Campaign for President and, in fact, specifically asked them not to do it — too mean and nasty with the Fake & Corrupt News and having to deal with some absolutely horrendous SleazeBags in the world of politics, and beyond. There has never been anything like this ‘ride’ before, and they should not be further subject to it. I ran twice, getting millions more Votes the second time (RIGGED), & am doing it again!”

Whether Ivanka and Jared are ultimately involved in politics or not, I can’t say I blame them. The attacks against her father have been vicious ever since he entered the arena back during the 2016 presidential election cycle. It’s a very difficult world to inhabit and requires a great deal of sacrifice that a young family may not be willing to make. And rightly so.
