Ivanka Trump 'in a bit of a panic' after father's exit from White House: 'They're questioning everything now'
Sources claim that both Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner are worried about what the future holds for them after last week's Capitol riots
Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka's aspiration to run for political office has been known to everyone within political circles. But her father's role in influencing a large group of his supporters -- who shared in his claims that the election was stolen from him -- to attack the US Capitol Building on 6 January, 2021 may have caused some serious damageto her political ambitions, the kind that can't be easily undone. The president has on multiple occasions repeated that his daughter is capable of being the first woman President of the United States. One such instance was at a New Hampshire rally in August where he said, "They're all saying, 'We want Ivanka!' I don't blame them," according to an Express report. During her father's stint in office, Ivanka served as advisor to him and the director of Office of Economic Initiatives and Entrepreneurship since 2017.
Her husband Jared Kushner too features on the panel as one of the senior advisors to the president. However, as of January 13, Trump became the first president to be impeached twice in less than 13 months by the House of Representatives. A bipartisan majority voted to impeach Trump on one charge of "incitement of insurrection" for his role in encouraging his supporters to march to the Capitol on January 6, according to a People report.
CNN's White House correspondent Kate Bennett was told by sources that both Ivanka and her husband are worried about what the future holds for them. They're both distressed about what they're going to do next because of the "horrific images" from the Capitol riots that are sure to follow them and other members of the Trump family as well as their aides wherever they go.
"That has Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump in a bit of a panic as they look to their future," she said. "I talked to a lot of sources today who say they're questioning everything now, from where they're going to live after the White House to what their careers will be," she said. Bennett further revealed that Ivanka and Kushner both know their fate in New York where they are no longer welcome and that Florida might be the next step for them. They also feel that they might not be wanted in Bedminster, New Jersey as well, where one of the president's golf courses is located. Bennett also added that the countrywide unrest caused by Trump supporters are making it "very difficult for them to tout any achievements they've made inside this administration" that they were planning to make as part of a "farewell tour."
During the violent protests at Capitol Hill, Ivanka sent a tweet where she branded the rioters as "American Patriots". Bennett was quick to reply to her, questioning if she's really calling the rioters patriotic. Ivanka then deleted the tweet and instead replied back with a 180-degree approach, "No. Peaceful protest is patriotic. Violence is unacceptable and must be condemned in the strongest terms."
