After months of hostile exchanges, Mr Biden will be inaugurated as President of the US on Wednesday despite Mr Trump’s efforts to undermine the result of the election. Even after allowing the Biden administration to undergo transition into the White House, President Trump refuses to acknowledge the validity of the vote, and will not attend the Democrat’s inauguration tomorrow. However, a dispute erupted in the Trump family after Ivanka reportedly planned to attend the ceremony in Washington. Ivanka wanted to show she was “good sport” and was concerned about how the recent actions of her father may impact her career going forward.
A White House spokesperson 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.”
This allegedly sparked fury from President Trump.
The source added: “He said it’s an insult that she would even want to engage with the crooks that are trying to bring him down.
“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.
“[Ivanka] 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.
“She’s leaving that for her dad and Don Jr.’
President Trump has been warned by Republican Party figures not to run in 2024, with GOP strategist Alex Conant saying: “The Republican Party is more divided now than it was two months ago, which is not how it’s supposed to work.”
As for Ivanka, her future political aspirations have been the subject of speculation since her father’s defeat in November.
She worked as a White House adviser under the outgoing administration, and sources close to the Trumps have suggested Ivanka could be planning a primary challenge to Senator Marco Rubio.

As for the Republican Party’s 2024 candidate, US politics expert Professor Stephen Burman told Express.co.uk in November that the party will likely opt for a moderate candidate, but another celebrity cannot be ruled out.
He said: He said: “I certainly don’t rule out the possibility of a celebrity becoming the candidate. The days when presidential candidates have to have legislative experience are gone.
“The way the media is, political communication, celebrities can come straight through.”
