Ivanka Trump said she was unable to attend her father’s 2024 presidential announcement on Tuesday because she “has no intention of getting involved in politics” during former President Donald Trump’s third presidential campaign.

In a statement to CNN, Ivanka Trump said, “While I will always love and support my father, I will do so outside of the political arena in the future.”
