Fox News reported that former President Donald Trump officially announced on Tuesday night that he will be making his third White House run. However, it seems that one prominent figure won’t be a part of his campaign.
According to The Washington Times, Ivanka Trump said during an interview with Fox News this week that while she loves her father “very much,” the former president’s eldest daughter stressed that she does “not plan to be involved in politics.”

The younger Trump said that her decision came down to her role as a mother, saying, “This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family.”
“While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena,” Trump continued.
“I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and will always be proud of many of our administration’s accomplishments,” she added.
“I’m very proud”
Later in the interview, Trump stressed that she continues to remain “extremely close” with her father, something she insisted “hasn’t changed and will never change.”
“I’ve had many roles over the years but that of daughter is one of the most elemental and consequential,” Trump added.
“I am loving this time with my kids, loving life in Miami and the freedom and privacy with having returned to the private sector. This has been one of the greatest times of my life.”
“My kids are thriving, and I want to maintain this cadence — this rhythm — at this point in our family’s life,” she explained before going on to add that “time is fleeting, and every parent will tell you it really does go by so quickly.”
“They are at critical ages, and we are enjoying these moments with them. We’re happy where we are right now, and we will continue to support my father — as his kids.”
Still, Trump did speak positively of her time in the political arena, stating, “I’m very proud of what I was able to accomplish. I left it all on the field, and I don’t miss it.”
