Two of Donald Trump’s grown children failed to make a cameo Tuesday night at the announcement of their father’s 2024 presidential campaign at his Mar-a-Lago golf club.

What Trump Jr. As for the matter, a well-known source told The Daily Beast on Tuesday night that the self-described “general of the meme wars” was on a “hunting trip in the west of the mountains” and “couldn’t get a flight to come back for the speech due to bad weather.
On the other hand, Ivanka Trump — whom the former president begged to appear, according to the New York Post — is trying to distance himself from politics altogether. While Trump Jr. intends to be active in his father’s campaign in 2024, Ivanka wants to prioritize her family and does not intend to participate in any campaigns.
“This time I choose to prioritize my young children and the private life we create as a family,” Ivanka said in a statement shared to The Daily Beast by an aide.
“I do not intend to go into politics. While I will always love and support my father, I will do so outside the political arena in the future,” she added.
The Post reported that Trump spent much of the weekend — which was also marked by the wedding ceremony of Trump’s other daughter, Tiffany, at Mar-a-Lago — begging both Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner to cancel his campaign event this week. to attend.
And while Ivanka chose to keep her distance, Kushner finally showed up at the speech on Tuesday.

Notably, Kushner was the man who pardoned Trump at the end of the term.
Jared Kushner has an IQ of 70. He’s coming to Miami. We’ll kick him out of Miami real quick; he will leave very soon,” Stone said in the video obtained by The Daily Beast, made by two Danish documentary filmmakers.
As for Ivanka, Stone said, “F*** you and your abortionist b**** daughter.”
