Former President Donald Trump said he asked his daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, to not be involved in his 2024 reelection campaign.
“Contrary to Fake News reporting, 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,” Trump wrote Tuesday on Truth Social.
While Kushner attended the former president’s campaign launch last month, Ivanka Trump was noticeably absent.
“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,” she said at the time.
The New York Post previously reported that Donald Trump begged Ivanka and Jared to join his campaign launch.
Kushner joined Trump for the campaign launch, but left after the former president had dinner with the rapper Ye, previously known as Kanye West, and white nationalist Nick Fuentes, New York Magazine reported. Aside from both men having a history of anti-semitic comments, Ye has personally criticized Kushner and his family.
Former President Trump said he is currently having to deal with attacks unlike ever before and his daughter and her family “should not be further subjected to it.”
