Ivanka Trump tells Rubio she won't run for his Senate seat

Ivanka Trump will not be running for Florida Sen Marco Rubio's U.S. Senate seat in 2022 as she settles into life after Washington.

The former president's eldest daughter and ex-senior White House adviser spoke with Rubio several weeks ago and told him she would not be running for his seat, according to a Rubio campaign spokesperson. The two have also discussed appearing at a joint event.

The conversation, first reported by The New York Times, comes a day after Donald Trump re-emerged after nearly a moth of self-imposed silence, conducting a series of interviews to commemorate the death of conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh. Trump would not comment on his political future in the interviews, saying it was too soon to talk about whether he will run again in 2024.

But there is plenty of speculation that other Trumps may want to follow in his footsteps. Lara Trump, the former president's daughter-in-law, who served as a chief campaign surrogate, is still considering running for the Senate in North Carolina. And the former president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, remains deeply popular with his father's base.

In a pair of friendly statements, Rubio and Ivanka Trump praised one another for their efforts together working on issues like paid family leave.

“I am incredibly grateful to Ivanka for her friendship and support," said Rubio. “The challenges working moms and dads face in today’s economy are real, and Ivanka was a formidable and effective advocate for them.”

“Marco has been a tremendous advocate for working families, a good personal friend, and I know he will continue to drive meaningful progress on issues we both care deeply about,” said Ivanka Trump.

Ivanka Trump tells Rubio she won't run

But she’s her daddy’s daughter, so the truthiness of what she says has to be questioned. I wonder whether part of her hesitation to run is her knowing there could be investigations into the millions she and Jared made while daddy was in the WH.

Jared and Ivanka made up to $640 million in the White House ...

Ivanka saying she won't run must please the Trump backers who were so vehemently opposed to continuing political dynasties like the Clinton and Bush families. Amirite?

Lara Trump, the former president's daughter-in-law, who served as a chief campaign surrogate,

She's being touted by Lindsey Graham as the new face of the Republican Party. Which must mean she's approved by the traditional Republican banker/country club faction, the religious right faction as well as the Qanon, Proud Boy, Oath Keepers and the dozens of other extreme right, white nationalist groups the Republicans have invited into their ‘tent’.

But would anyone actually believe anything Lindsey Graham said?

They should all be convicted for past crimes. Need to nip this in the bud, so this family never gets into govt office again.

“Daddy’s little impure thought” would never stoop to running for something as common as the U.S. Senate, where she’d have to be 1 of 100 and have to submit to seniority.

She wants to be Daddy’s little mini-me and be Governor and bully people with impunity like Gov. Ron Helmet-hair.

Mr and Mrs  Kushner are done politically. They were just into making their fortune. She is under investigation for misusing the inauguration funds.

Probably not, I don’t think she has any worries or concerns about that and doesn’t need to have any concerns, I think she just wants to enjoy her life and spend time with her children as she should, she didn’t have enough time to do so, but now she can and it’s good for the children to have both of their parents as young as they are, Trump has this already in Florida and he’s becoming a strong force with each passing day in the Florida politics and national Republican politics as he is the strongest and largest magnet for the GOP going forward.

Of course she won't challenge him - she needs to maximize all of those Chinese trademarks she got during her father's term...

*In October, China’s Trademark Office granted provisional approval for 16 trademarks to Ivanka Trump Marks LLC, bringing to 34 the total number of marks China has greenlighted this year, according to the office’s online database. The new approvals cover *Ivanka-branded fashion gear including sunglasses, handbags, shoes and jewelry, as well as beauty services and voting machines.

Note - "voting machines"... Maybe in addition to the CCP, she's business partners with Hugo Chavez too...

Oh my, someone tell Sidney Powell...

Ivanka Trump was part of the problem not part of the solution. The First Lady Melania complained her budget was given to Ivanka and even tried to take over the FLOTUS office.

Wanna make a bet Sen. Rubio is at Mar-a-Lago right now kissing Ivanka's and Donald's royal rear ends?

No, Pelosi and the entire Democrat party were the problem in trying to get rid of her dad.

Yeah, the majority of that proved to have been debunked like the impeachment hoax.

I guess you might have missed the news about the voters who got rid of Trump and all of his children from the WH. Good to have a president now without cushy roles for his children.

 Ivanka Trump tried to rename the First Lady's Office the 'First Family Office'

Neither of the impeachments were hoaxes. They happened. The insurgent anti-democracy PotUS was impeached. Twice.

Ivanka and the rest of the criminal family should concentrate on their business assets in China and other places of interest.

Again, it has nothing to do with the fake news that Ivanka wanted to push out Melania. Stay focused please.

I never said she did? I say she wanted the budget of the FLOTUS for herself and wanted to rename the FLOTUS office to First Family. I am focused BTW.

Ivanka Trump is under investigation.

Not really, that was already debunked so many times and the lib press still ran with it.

Ivanka Trump is under investigation.

She’ll be fine.

"Many of Donald Trump's relatives and close associates have received political appointments and profited during his presidency. It is true that Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, and Andrew Guiliani work at the White House. It is true that Mary Daly works at Treasury, and that the Trump Organization has profited from foreign governments."

As well as the current President and previous Presidents before him.

Trump has this already in Florida and he’s becoming a strong force with each passing day

Only with fringe lunatics who have difficulties navigating reality.

Indeed, but the focus is on the Trump cartel.

Fringe, Democrats..ROFL!

I’m not in the administration but as far as dealings with China from Joe’s brother to a sister into Hunter quite a bit, but we know the main stream media they don’t want to cover none of that, not one iota of that,

Not correct. No political appointments for his family.

I’m not in the administration but as far as dealings with China from Joe’s brother to a sister into Hunter quite a bit, but we know the main stream media they don’t want to cover none of that, not one iota of that,

But you at least read all the JT posts. No evidence of any wrong doings by Biden or his family. No criminal charges.

Not correct. No political appointments for his family.

Still dealings in millions with a foreign country and not exactly an ally of the US and refusing to disclose any of these dealings as a public official doesn’t seem trustworthy or transparent at all.

But you at least read all the JT posts.

More like gloss over.

No evidence of any wrong doings by Biden or his family. No criminal charges.

According to the liberal media, I guess. But then again to the Conservatives media, Ivanka and her husband did nothing either.

and refusing to disclose any of these dealings as a public official doesn’t seem trustworthy or transparent at all.

Bit like 45s tax returns debacle, amongst others.

Hmmm

but as far as dealings with China from Joe’s brother to a sister into Hunter quite a bit, but we know the main stream media they don’t want to cover none of that, not one iota of that,

You've previously stated you don't read the mainstream media anymore. Has this changed, then?

That as well, but the msm isn’t even touching that smoldering fire.

Yup

Nope.

Biden has released his tax returns and put his assets into a blind trust. You know, like a responsible leader does.

The MSM has been all over 45s dodgy tax situation like a rash. Surprised you missed it.

Yup

If that's true (and I doubt it), how can you know what the MSM is or isn't reporting on?

Yeah, don’t believe that. If that were true, Hunter and Joe’s brother would answer a lot of questions instead of dodging them like they do and Psaki and Biden owning 3 homes as a government worker is odd, but hey..when Dems do suspicious and financial activities, give them a pass, not even an inquiry, if it’s a conservatives by default they’re just corrupt. ROFL! Funny!

The MSM has been all over 45s dodgy tax situation like a rash.

Yeah, we know.

If that's true

Not if, they didn’t...ok NBC did 30 seconds, ABC none and CBS a little over 2 min.

how can you know what the MSM is or isn't reporting on?

That’s glossing, not reporting. Thank God for Tucker, Laura and Hannity. No wonder their ratings are through the roof.
