- As Donald Trump teases another run for president, his family is divided over the idea, CNN reported.
- Ivanka Trump, a former senior adviser to her father while he was president, is “done” with Washington.

Ivanka Trump, a former senior adviser to then-President Donald Trump, is “done” with Washington and her father’s political dealings, according to a CNN report.
As the Trump patriarch teases another presidential campaign, his family is divided over his political future, the paper said.
Ivanka isn’t particularly interested in returning to politics, with a source (who was not named to preserve their relationship with the Trump family) telling CNN that Ivanka has been “done” with Capitol Hill politics “since the day she left.” and has no intention of returning.
Although she received many requests for endorsements during this season’s contentious midterm elections, according to a CNN source, Ivanka has not made any public appearances or statements while her father has been campaigning for GOP candidates around the country.
“(Ivanka) would never come back to this life,” a source familiar with her thinking told CNN. “She knows it’s not something that would serve her or her family at this point.”
The eldest daughter of the former president and her husband, Jared Kushner, served as unpaid senior advisers to Donald Trump, wielding significant influence over his policy initiatives despite limited political experience. Before working in the White House, Ivanka was a runway model and fashion designer, as well as an executive in her family’s real estate company, The Trump Organization.
Kushner, a real estate mogul, was publisher of the New York Observer for a decade before joining the Trump administration. The other Trump children — Donald Jr. Eric, Tiffany and Barron — have had no official roles in the Trump White House, although Eric and Don Jr. continued to do business on behalf of the Trump Organization while their father was in office .
Trump’s youngest daughter, Tiffany, is getting married this weekend to her boyfriend of five years, Michael Boulos, the son of a wealthy family with distribution and marketing businesses in Nigeria.
Ivanka Trump’s lawyer did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
