According to wrestling-edge.com, there have been suggestions that former President Donald Trump missed an opportunity to dismiss Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, or at least have someone else handle their departure, when he had the chance.
The fact that they voluntarily distanced themselves from his political operations could be seen as a blow to Trump’s ego and an indication of their potentially wavering loyalty. Although Trump recently claimed to have made the decision to exclude them from his hypothetical second administration, insiders indicate a different narrative.
Insiders within former President Donald Trump’s close circle reveal that he initially wanted Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump to be part of his 2024 campaign. However, the couple declined the offer, indicating their intention not to align themselves with Trump in the future. These sources discredit Trump’s assertion that he made the decision to remove them, highlighting that it was actually Jared and Ivanka’s choice to disassociate themselves from him.
The recent disclosure regarding Trump’s desire to remove his daughter and son-in-law from the White House does not come as a complete surprise. Reports from 2018 indicated that he had approached then-Chief of Staff John Kelly for assistance in pushing Jared and Ivanka out. However, Trump’s conflicting messages and hesitancy to follow through ultimately resulted in their continued presence within his administration.
“NO. I SAID, THAT’S ENOUGH FOR THE FAMILY. DO YOU KNOW WHY? IT’S TOO PAINFUL FOR THE FAMILY,” TRUMP REPLIED.
HE WENT ON TO CLAIM HIS CHILDREN HAD “BEEN THROUGH HELL,” NOTING THAT IVANKA WAS FORCED TO SHUTTER HER CLOTHING LINE (AFTER SALES STARTED TANKING).
“NOBODY HAS BEEN THROUGH WHAT MY FAMILY HAS BEEN THROUGH,” TRUMP TOLD BAIER. “IVANKA HAD A REALLY SUCCESSFUL LINE OF CLOTHING. I MEAN, MAKING A FORTUNE. WHEN I DID THIS, SHE WAS REALLY — SHE CLOSED IT UP.”
According to The Daily Beast, Trump’s current advisers reportedly expressed a sense of Schadenfreude upon learning about Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s permanent departure. Some advisers shared transcriptions of Trump’s remarks about the couple, while others openly celebrated their exit, referring to Jared as a “double no baby.”
This suggests that there may have been underlying tensions or frustrations within Trump’s inner circle regarding the influence and role of his daughter and son-in-law. In retrospect, it seems that Trump missed an opportunity to prevent the embarrassment of his trusted advisers distancing themselves from him.
While he now presents their departure as a protective measure, the reality appears to be that Jared and Ivanka made the decision to disassociate themselves from Trump’s political endeavors. The specific reasons for their choice remain undisclosed, but it is evident that their absence has created a noticeable void within Trump’s sphere of influence.
