Former President Donald Trump revealed that his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, will not work on his 2o24 campaign, rejecting speculative reports saying otherwise.

In a Truth Social post, Trump said that reports claiming Kushner and Ivanka refused to work on his campaign were false. Instead, according to the former president, he told them that they should not join to avoid the rampant media speculation.

“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 on his social media platform.

Also on Monday, Trump wrote that “there has never been anything like this ‘ride’ before,” and his family “should not be further subjected to it.” He added, “I ran twice, getting millions more Votes the second time … & am doing it again!”

It came days after the New York Post and other outlets, citing anonymous sources, claimed that Trump privately spoke with his daughter and son-in-law to join his 2024 White House bid when his daughter, Tiffany Trump, got married in November. Those reports said Ivanka and Kushner rejected his proposal to join.

New York Magazine, which similarly cited unnamed sources, stated that Kushner rejected Trump’s proposal because he met with Kanye West several weeks ago. Neither Trump nor Kushner have publicly responded to that specific allegation.

Public Statements

After Trump announced his third presidential bid at Mar-a-Lago on Nov. 15, Ivanka Trump confirmed she would not join the campaign. She had served as an adviser to the president, according to an archived White House page, and focused on education and economic development for women.

“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,” Ivanka Trump, who is mother to three children, said in a statement on Instagram. “While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena. I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and will always be proud of many of our administration’s accomplishments,” she added.

The younger Trump added that she has “had many roles over the years but that of daughter is one of the most elemental and consequential. I am loving this time with my kids, loving life in Miami and the freedom and privacy with having returned to the private sector … this has been one of the greatest times of my life.”

Kushner, who had served as a Trump’s policy adviser but who has drawn significant criticism from right-wing figures, has not made a public comment about whether he would join. There were reports that Kushner appeared at his father-in-law’s Mar-a-Lago announcement on Nov. 15, while later, Kushner appeared alongside Twitter owner and tech billionaire Elon Musk at the World Cup final in Qatar earlier this month, according to photos published on social media, which led to rampant speculation.

Notably, Kushner made an appearance on several news shows in the fall, criticizing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s move to fly illegal immigrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard. His remarks drew conservative pushback online.

“I personally watch what’s happening and it’s very hard to see at the southern border. I also—we have to remember these are human beings, they’re people,” Kushner told Fox News in September, in response to a question about DeSantis’s flights. “So seeing them being used as political pawns one way or the other is very troubling to me.”

The Trump family has been in the crosshairs of a long-running probe into its business, the Trump Organization, which was convicted several weeks ago on 17 criminal charges. The trial started Oct. 31, and a Trump Organization lawyer said it will appeal.

Their business could face a total of $1.61 million in fines when it is sentenced in January. Trump has said the probe and others are politically motivated witch hunts designed to harm his political chances.
