While Trump did manage to get the attention of a huge crowd with his latest campaign announcement from last night, it seems that his family members aren’t as excited about it as the rest of us. Ivanka Trump, the former first daughter, wasn’t present at the event.
Instead, Trump’s daughter made an announcement of her own, following the start of her father’s presidential campaign, stating she’d like to focus on raising her children and staying out of politics as much as she possibly can.
Trump’s campaign kicks off to a great start
Even though it does seem rather strange that his second eldest child wasn’t there to celebrate his upcoming attempt to reclaim the White House, it is still respectable that Trump’s daughter Ivanka is choosing family values over politics.

While being interviewed by ABC News, Ivanka added that despite her lack of attendance at the announcement event, she still loves her father very much.
However, Ivanka reiterated that she is simply choosing to prioritize family over politics. Because of this, she has no plans to be involved in any political matters in the foreseeable future.
Her work in the Trump administration, as well as the work she did in the position of the Trump company’s executive vice president was commendable, to say the least. It is more than likely that Ivanka will keep piling on successes even outside of politics.

Trump administration’s accomplishments shine to this day
During her interview, Ivanka stated that she will continue supporting her father, albeit out of the political arena herself, which is more than Biden could ever hope for if Hunter is taken into consideration.
Unlike Biden, Trump also had a fair share of accomplishments he’d made during his time in office. Ivanka added that she will remain proud of what she contributed to while serving the American people.
On the other hand, if Joe’s crack-addict son was in office for the past two years, there’s no telling how worse things would’ve turned out for all of us; that’s only going off of what we know about Hunter.

Although Ivanka wasn’t seen at the event, her husband Jared Kushner was reportedly present for the entirety of Trump’s speech, showing support for his father-in-law’s upcoming presidential campaign.
Trump is still getting some levels of support, even after the GOP’s poor performance in the midterm elections. There are now questions about what comes next for the MAGA movement. With enough inertia, the Democrats won’t stand a chance, no matter what candidate they opt to go for.
As it stands today, however, a real threat to Trump’s presidential campaign is likely to be none other than Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. However, this is still not confirmed, seeing as DeSantis neither confirmed nor denied his involvement in the 2024 presidential election.
