Donald Trump tried to convince Ivanka and Jared Kushner to appear with him on stage Tuesday for the launch of his 2024 campaign for the presidency, according to sources.
Trump plans to announce his run at the Palm Beach resort in Florida, sources told The New York Post.
The former president was heard chatting with his daughter and Kushner at his daughter Tiffany’s wedding over the weekend at Mar-a-Lago, but it’s unclear if the couple will accept Trump’s offer.
Ivanka and her husband are said to be “done” with Washington DC and have no intention of returning to the White House if Trump runs again and wins.
“Trump thought he could convince Ivanka this weekend to come back and campaign for him, since she was the most in-demand speaker after the president himself last time…but so far she’s resisting his pleas and has stands strong, just like Jared,” he said. said the source.
“They both feel they got burned in Washington and don’t want to go back and expose themselves and their children to another bitter campaign.”
Trump Jr and his fiancee Kimberly Guilfoyle along with Eric and Lara Trump, on the other hand, remain extremely active on the campaign scene and are believed to be encouraging Trump to seek a second term.
The whole family had gathered to watch Tiffany, 29, say ‘I do’ to billionaire Michael Boulos, 25. The happy couple is pictured here with Tiffany’s mother, Marla Maples, who donned a lavender Elie Saab gown, and her father, former President Donald Trump.
The former president has not officially announced his candidacy, but Lara Trump, who is a contributor to Fox News, has warned Florida Ron DeSantis not to run against his father-in-law in the 2024 election.
“I think he’s a smart enough guy to know that it would be great to have the full support of this entire party, of the MAGA ‘America First’ movement, whatever you want to call it, fully behind him in 2028. then possibly fracture it in 2024,” Trump said on Sky News Australia. ‘I can tell you those primaries get very messy and very raw.’
Lara was asked about a possible showdown between DeSantis and Trump, as the former president appears set to announce a 2024 bid on Tuesday from his Mar-a-Lago resort, while other Republicans and their allies in the media point out DeSantis as the future leader of the Republican Party.
DeSantis has not indicated whether he plans to throw his hat into the 2024 ring. The Florida governor recently beat Democrat Charlie Crist by 19 points in last week’s election, easily earning a second term, while other Republican candidates struggled.
Meanwhile, Lara surmised that DeSantis “is probably waiting to see what [her] my father in law does.
‘I think Ron DeSantis is very smart. He is a young boy. There will be many opportunities for him in the future, and he knows it, to run for president,” he said.
So wouldn’t it be better for him, and I think he knows this, to wait until 2028? she argued.

Meanwhile, it’s unknown why Ivanka and Jared didn’t immediately accept the invitation to take the stage on Tuesday.
Ivanka and Jared were recently spotted in Florida after leaving Washington in January 2021.
Before the couple lived in Washington, they had their own $4.1 million New York apartment in the Trump’s Park Avenue building.
While the couple may have returned to their Manhattan hotspot, Ivanka’s best friend has previously said the duo’s return could be socially “difficult” due to their ties to the former president.
The couple bought a $24 million home for renovation in Miami last year and have been temporarily renting a condo while they wait for their dream home in Indian Creek to be completed.
