Ivanka Trump reportedly 'hurt' by sister-in-law Karlie Kloss' criticism of her tweet praising pro-Trump mob
Ivanka Trump faced backlash last week when she attempted to speak the first time on Twitter. Among those who criticized the riots was her sister-in-law Karlie Kloss.
Someone close to Ivanka revealed to Page Six that the White House adviser was hurt at Kloss’s tweet regarding the riots. Kloss, who is married to Joshua Kushner, the brother of Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner, spoke out against the pro-Trump mob that stormed the Capitol last week as election results were being certified in a joint session. Kloss made an indirect tweet regarding her in-laws, saying that she has tried to convince both Ivanka and Jared to accept the election results. Both Kloss and her husband are Democrats, a stark contrast to Ms. Trump and Mr. Kushner who both lean Republican as they serve in the Trump administration.
“The tweet was brought to Ivanka’s attention and she was mostly surprised because they’re so close and talk on a regular basis, but never really about politics,” said the source. “Karlie likes to position herself publicly as an activist, yet she’s never approached Ivanka on any of the issues she has championed like paid maternal leave, women in STEM, and criminal justice reform. Karlie is public with her politics but privately shies away from discussing them. But they are very close and they really enjoy each other’s company, so Ivanka’s hurt.”
However, in response to the comment, someone close to Ms. Kloss revealed that Ivanka is well-aware of Kloss’s views and that they have not been close for some time due to political differences. They also noted that Ms. Kloss thinks it is “unfortunate” that Ivanka chooses to focus on this rather than her father’s administration’s attempts at trying to dismantle the country’s democracy.
With 10 days to go until the Biden administration moves in, Ivanka is believed to be eyeing a possible political career after her stint as White House adviser. The speculation that Ivanka may be trying to set up her own political career comes as her family may relocate to Florida from Washington DC. Commentator Rick Gates previously revealed that before her father ultimately decided on Mike Pence to become his vice president back in 2016, she was his initial choice.
