Ivanka and Jared Are No-Go

Jared Kushner and Ivanka TRump

(DCWatchdog.com) – Former President Donald Trump, the frontrunner for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, has stated that his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, won’t be part of his potential second administration.

During the Trump administration from 2017 until 2021, Jared Kushner served as the President’s senior advisor and the Office of American Innovation (OAI) director.

Ivanka Trump was also an advisor to the President, and at the same time, she headed the Office of Economic Initiatives and Entrepreneurship (OEIE)

The Trump administration established both the OAI and the OEIE, and Joe Biden immediately dissolved them after the latter entered the White House in January 2021.

Speaking in an interview on Fox News Special Report that aired on Monday, the 45th president of the United States explained why his daughter and son-in-law wouldn’t be a part of a second Trump presidency.

He told host Brett Baier that it had been “enough for the family” since their service during his first term was already sufficiently harsh, and a second White House gig would be too tough for them.

Trump argued that even his decision to run for President for a third time had already taken a heavy toll on his children.

“Would you want Jared and Ivanka to serve in a second administration?” Baier asked the leading 2024 Republican presidential candidate.

“No, I told — I said that’s enough for the family,” Trump replied.

“You know why? It’s too painful for the family. My family’s been through hell… Eric, my son, who’s a fine boy… comes in, we’re doing beautifully, then I decide to run for President, I don’t think anybody in the world in history has ever had more subpoenas sent to them,” the former President elaborated.

“Nobody has been through what my family has been through. Ivanka had a really successful line of clothing, making a fortune. When I did this, she was really — she closed it up. She sort of felt she had to, but she closed it up. My other boys were doing great,” Trump concluded.
