In an interview this week, former President Donald Trump reportedly stated that his family will not play a role in his administration if he becomes the Republican Party nominee and wins the general election in 2024.
In an interview that aired Monday evening, Trump, 77, told Fox News anchor Bret Baier that being president was “too painful for the family” and that they will not be engaged in his administration if he wins the presidency again.
Trump made the remarks in response to Baier’s question about whether he wanted his eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, to work with him in the future.
“No. I said, that’s enough for the family. You know why? It’s too painful for the family.” Trump stated.
“My family’s been through hell. I mean, they have — Eric, my son, who’s a fine boy. You know him very well. He’s a fine young man, good student, good everything, comes in. We’re doing beautifully. Then I decide to run for president. I mean, I don’t think anybody in the world in history has ever had more subpoenas sent to him,” he continued.
“Ivanka had a really successful line of clothing, I mean, making a fortune. When I did this, she was really — she closed it up. She sort of felt she had to, but she closed it up.” Trump added.
Ivanka had previously announced that she would play no role whatsoever in a hypothetical second Trump administration.
