Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter of former President Donald Trump and former senior White House adviser, spoke with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and told him that she will not run in 2022 for the seat that the legislator will leave, revealed a campaign spokesperson by Rubio.
He added that in their conversation several weeks ago the two also talked about appearing at a joint public event.
The content of the conversation, first reported by The New York Times, was revealed a day after Donald Trump resurfaced on public stages after nearly a month of self-imposed silence, conducting a series of interviews related to the death of the conservative commentator. Rush Limbaugh.
Trump declined to comment on his political future in interviews, save to say it was too early to talk about whether he will run again in 2024.
However, there is much speculation that others in the Trump family will want to follow in his footsteps. Lara Trump, the former president’s daughter-in-law and a former campaign manager, is still considering running for Senate in North Carolina. The former president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., remains very popular with his father’s fan base.
In a couple of statements, Rubio and Ivanka Trump praised each other for their efforts to work on issues such as paid family leave.
“I am very grateful to Ivanka for her friendship and support,” Rubio said. “The challenges facing working moms and dads in today’s economy are real, and Ivanka was a formidable and effective advocate for them.”
“Marco has been a great advocate for working families, a good personal friend, and I know that he will continue to drive significant progress on issues that deeply concern us both,” said Ivanka Trump.
