Trump says he asked Ivanka and Jared Kushner to stay out of his campaign to avoid ‘mean and nasty’ world of politics

Former President Donald Trump said Monday that he specifically asked his daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner to stay out of his 2024 presidential campaign in order to keep them out of the “mean and nasty” world of politics.

Trump made the comments on Truth Social, where he again claimed that the 2020 election was rigged.

“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, adding: “There has never been anything like this ‘ride’ before, and they should not be further subjected to it. I ran twice, getting millions more Votes, the second time (RIGGED), & am doing it again!”

His comments were in response to November reports claiming that he had begged Ivanka and Kushner to join his campaign.

“Trump thought he could convince Ivanka this weekend to come back and campaign for him as she was the most requested speaker after the president himself last time around… but so far she’s resisting his entreaties and holding firm, as is Jared,” a source reportedly told the New York Post last month.

“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,” the insider said.

Kushner and Ivanka previously served as Trump’s senior advisers during his presidency.
