Former President Donald Trump revealed on Monday that his daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner will not be part of his government if he wins a second term in 2024.
Trump made the revelation during an interview with Fox News host Bret Baier. Trump told Baier that his daughter and son-in-law would not be a part of a potential second term because the previous experience was too painful for his family.

“Nobody has been through what my family has been through,” Trump said. “Ivanka had a really successful line of clothing, I mean, 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.”
Ivanka had to close her clothing line in 2018 after joining her father’s administration as a White House adviser.
“My family’s been through hell. I mean, they have — Eric, my son, who’s a fine boy. You know him very well. He’s a fine young man, good student, good everything, comes in. We’re doing beautifully. Then I decide to run for president. I mean, I don’t think anybody in the world in history has ever had more subpoenas sent to him,” Trump added.
The former president revealed last year that he had specifically asked them not to be a part of his 2024 campaign, contrary to “fake news” that suggested Ivanka and Jared had turned down his request.
Trump wrote on his Truth Social that he made the decision because he did not want to subject them to “some absolute horrendous SleazeBags in the world of politics, and er\
“There has never been anything like this ‘ride’ before, and they should not be further subjected to it,” Trump wrote.
Ivanka and her husband, A former Trump Adviser at the White House, have reportedly shown no interest in a return to government. Ivanka admitted that while she loves her father “very much,” her priorities rest with her young children and the private lives she is creating with her family.
While I will always love and support my father, going forward, I will do so outside the political arena,” Ivanka said. “I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and I will always be proud of many of our administration’s accomplishments.”
