Ivanka Trump emotional during Donald Trump’s final speech
Mary Trump believes “it’s over” for Ivanka who served as adviser to Mr Trump alongside husband Jared Kushner. The author told Sirius XM Radio presenter Dean Obeidallah: “I think it’s completely over and they have their father to thank for that.”
Ivanka has been described as “in a bit of a panic” about her political future by a source talking to CNN.
Speculation has circled the possibility of her making a primary challenge for the Florida senate in 2022.
But others believe the former First Daughter will return to working in real estate and on her fashion line.
Leaving the White House, Ivanka tweeted that it was “the honour of a lifetime” to serve the former US President and she was “proud” of what she achieved.
She wrote: “I came to Washington [DC] to fight for American families and I leave feeling I have done that.”
In one part of the message Ms Trump sparked speculation about a potential presidential run as said she was “excited about the future”.
Her remarks were seated alongside comments about being “so proud” of what she had “accomplished and achieved” in politics.
Michael Wolff, author of ‘Fire and Fury’, a book about the Trump administration, claimed Ivanka made an “earnest deal” with husband Jared Kushner to step aside for his wife to run for office.
He added that Ivanka truly believes she could be the first female US President.
Writing for New York Magazine, Mr Wolff claimed the couple came to the decision of working for Donald Trump to further their careers.
He wrote: “The First Children couple were having to navigate Trump’s volatile nature just like everyone else in the White House.
“And they were willing to do it for the same reason as everyone else ‒ in the hope that Trump’s unexpected victory would catapult them into a heretofore unimagined big time.
“Balancing risk against reward, both Jared and Ivanka decided to accept a role in the West Wing over the advice of almost everyone they knew.
“It was a joint decision by the couple, and, in some sense, a joint job.
“Between themselves, the two had made an earnest deal: If sometime in the future the opportunity arose, she’d be the one to run for president.
“The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton; it would be Ivanka Trump.”
