On Monday (December 26), former President Donald Trump insisted that he hadn’t asked his daughter Ivanka Trump or her husband, Jared Kushner, to participate in his 2024 campaign.
Instead, the former President took to Truth Social to assert that not only hadn’t he asked Ivanka and Jared not to be part of his 2024 Presidential Campaign; he had specifically requested they not be involved.
He noted his reasons for asking them not to tether themselves to his campaign was because of the “Fake [and] Corrupt News” and the couple “having to deal with some absolutely horrendous SleazeBags.”
The former President explained that there hadn’t been a game like politics — referencing his two Presidential races. Trump noted that in his second Presidential bid, he got far more votes than he did in his first race, emphasizing his belief the 2020 elections were “RIGGED.”
According to reports by the New York Post, Trump spent most of the time at his daughter Tiffany’s wedding at Mar-a-Lago, attempting to convince Ivanka and Jared to be on stage with him when he announced his 2024 White House bid.
Ivanka didn’t attend Trump’s November 15th announcement, citing a desire to prioritize her kids, while Jared attended but didn’t appear on stage.
In its report, the New York Post relayed information from a source, claiming both rejected Trump’s requests because they felt “burned in Washington,” adding that neither wanted to “go back and expose themselves.”
Kushner kept his distance following the Kanye West and Nick Fuentes controversy, an event that — in the past —would have elicited some defense of his father-in-law.
