Former President Donald Trump was recently asked by Fox News if his daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner would join a second Trump administration.
Trump declared, “No,” and adding, “that’s enough for the family.”
“It’s too painful for the family, my family has been through hell,” Trump added, discussing how many subpoeanas his son Eric has received.
The comments were made in the 6pm EST interview on Fox News with Bret Baier.
“Nobody has been through what my family has been through,” he added.
Asked why he wants to go through another grueling campaign, and government, Trump replied: “I wanna make America great again. We had it great… very simple, I want to make America great again.”
The interview was Trump’s first since he appeared in federal court in Miami last week and pleaded not guilty in the federal classified documents case. He faces seven federal criminal charges related to the more than 100 classified documents recovered from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, in August.
As Trump runs for a second term, some members of his family have appeared at his events, but others have been notably absent. Ivanka Trump said late last year that she was done with politics and wouldn’t be part of her father’s 2024 campaign. Trump’s wife, Melania, has rarely been seen at his events since his campaign launch.
