Is the First Daughter positioning herself to run for president in four years? A recent Tweet from Ivanka Trump is raising eyebrows. Trump took to Twitter to note that she loves Iowa, the state whose caucuses have traditionally kicked of the presidential nominating calendar and is a “must stop” for White House hopefuls. Sources close to President Trump have claimed he may plan to run for president in 2024, but he has yet to confirm the rumors.
In a report from Fox News:
The younger Trump is no stranger to Iowa — she was last there for a two-day swing on the eve of last month’s election, campaigning for her father’s as well as for GOP Sen. Joni Ernst’s reelection. The elder Trump defeated President-elect Joe Biden by 8 points in Iowa, and Ernst ended up easily winning what was expected to be a difficult reelection.
During a campaign stop in the battleground state of New Hampshire in August, immediately after the Republican National Convention, the president played up the possibility of his daughter someday running for the White House.
Trump criticized Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, who at the time had been named a couple of weeks earlier as Biden’s running mate, saying the senator from California was not the kind of woman who could make history as the first female president due to her failed bid for the Democratic nomination.
Trump then added, “They’re all saying, ‘We want Ivanka!'” as he pointed to cheering supporters near the stage. “I don’t blame them,” he continued.
Ivanka Trump has worked alongside her father in the White House as a special adviser for the past four years.
