Ivanka Trump allegedly believed that she could be the first women president in the country, according to a report.
Ivanka Trump has also received an intense backlash following the violent protest at the Capitol for calling the rioters “American patriots.” Despite the criticisms, a new report claimed she and her husband, Jared Kushner, were convinced that they are still equipped for a job in the White House.
Ivanka Trump was rumored to have political ambitions. Several sources claimed that she wanted to run for president in the future and was hoping that the current controversies won’t affect her.
“The first daughter seems to believe she can emerge from all this unscathed,” Bess Levin wrote for Vanity Fair.
She also cited a report from Michael Wolff where Kushner and Ivanka allegedly were “balancing risk against reward” despite being advised by their friends against getting into politics.
According to Wolff, Jared and Ivanka accepted roles in the West Wing over the advice of the people surrounding them. It was a joint decision and a joint job for the couple.
He also added that they made an earnest deal that if there would be an opportunity, Ivanka would run for president. Trump’s daughter allegedly entertained the thought of her becoming the first female U.S. president.
“The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton; it would be Ivanka Trump,” Wolff wrote.
Steve Bannon, who became chief executive of Trump’s team, wasn’t sold with the idea of Ivanka running for president. While Bannon is not supportive of Ivanka being the first female president, her dad, Trump, believed she could lead the country. In fact, the POTUS was convinced that if she would run for president, her rivals would have a hard time beating her.
“If she ever wanted to run for president, I think she’d be very, very hard to beat,” Trump said.
Meanwhile, there are rumors that Ivanka Trump planned to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20. Several online users argued and wanted Biden and Kamala Harris to ban the first daughter from the event.
They didn’t want to see any Trump family members at the celebration, saying they were not welcome. Many were furious at them following the violent protest at the Capitol last week.
However, a White House source spoke with Vanity Fair and denied the report that she will attend the inauguration. Also, it was reportedly unclear if Ivanka would be invited.
