Ivanka Trump’s alleged plans to attend President-Elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20 have reportedly caused a feud between her and her father.
Ivanka supposedly made the decision to go to the event in an effort to save her aspiring political career, sources told the Daily Mail.
“Ivanka is worried that her promising political career is in jeopardy and she's doing whatever she can to save her reputation,” the source said.
However, US President Donald Trump is said to have been furious with his senior advisor when he learned of her reported plans.
“The president told his daughter that her presence at the inauguration will cost her thousands of supporters and would be the worst decision she could ever make,” the source said.
Ivanka reportedly believes that she will appear like a “good sport” if she watches on, along with VP Mike Pence, as Biden becomes the 46th US President.
“She said she has to protect her own political aspirations and isn't about to muck it all up by attending her dad's 2024 campaign kick-off which is set for the same day,” the source said.
A second source from the White House told the publication that any claims of Ivanka going to the inauguration are false.
The news comes after a very long week for Trump, who has been kicked off his beloved Twitter, has been shunned by some of his most loyal allies and is facing an imminent impeachment after the deadly Capitol riots.
On Monday (local time), the president declared a state of emergency for Washington DC.
The state of emergency, which will be in place in the District of Columbia until January 24, authorises the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to coordinate with local authorities as needed.
Trump suffers another embarrassing blow
The PGA of America announced on Monday it was severing links with the outgoing president and that it would no longer hold a 2022 Championship event at Trump’s golf course in New Jersey.
“The PGA of America Board of Directors voted tonight to exercise the right to terminate the agreement to play the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster,” Jim Richerson, PGA of America President said.
The President is reportedly “gutted” by the move.
