Ivanka Trump distances herself from politics after her father announced a 2024 presidential bid.
Trump’s eldest daughter said she will prioritize her children and personal life over his campaign.
“I have no intention of getting involved in politics,” said Ivanka, who served as an adviser during his first term.
Following her notable absence from announcing her father’s 2024 presidential campaign, Ivanka Trump released a statement on Tuesday saying she was stepping away from politics.
“I love my father very much,” ABC reporter said Katherine Faulders reported Ivanka’s statement said. “This time I choose to prioritize my children and the private life we create as a family. I do not intend to get involved in politics.”
Donald Trump’s eldest daughter was an up-and-coming political figure during the years of her father’s presidency. She delivered the keynote address at the 2020 RNC convention and served as a senior adviser in the White House during the Trump administration. When her father announced his candidacy for president in 2024 on Tuesday night, she and her brother, Don Jr., were absent from the event.
“While I will always love and support my father, I will do so outside of the political arena in the future,” Ivanka’s statement continued. “I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and will always be proud of many of our government’s achievements.”
Ivanka has steadily distanced herself from her father’s board in the years since he left office. In June, she split from Donald Trump’s long-held position that the 2020 election was stolen from him, saying she “accepts” Attorney General William Barr’s analysis that no substantial fraud had been committed in the voting process. Earlier this month, sources familiar with her mindset told CNN that Ivanka would “never” return to her father’s senior adviser and that she was “done” with politics.
Representatives for Donald Trump and an attorney for Ivanka Trump did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
