Ivanka Trump, the daughter of Donald Trump with alleged political aspirations, ruled out competing for the seat in the US Senate held by the Cuban-American Marco Rubio for the state of Florida, who thus has a clear path on the Republican side to be reelected in 2022.
This past Thursday details were given of the meeting between Trump’s eldest daughter and Rubio, where the Trump family offered support to the Cuban-American for his reelection to the Senate.
“I can confirm that Marco and Ivanka spoke a few weeks ago. Ivanka offered her support for Marco’s re-election and they had a great talk. I can also confirm that we are discussing a joint event to highlight Marco and Ivanka’s successful push to expand the Child Tax Credit, ”a Rubio spokesperson told the outlet. Florida Politics.
Since Ivanka and her husband established legal residence in Florida with Donald and the rest of the family, speculation has been unleashed about the possibility that Ivanka could compete for the Senate by unseating Rubio.
However, now the speculations change and the idea begins to emerge that Ivanka is preparing for the presidential race of 2024 where she will eventually face Kamala Harris as a presidential candidate.
Rubio first won the seat in 2010 amid a Tea Party uprising, when the former speaker of the Florida House of Representatives ran in a primary against then-Republican Gov. Charlie Crist.
The Cuban American won the seat that year with 48.9% of the votes. Six years later, Rubio entered the presidential race, but falling behind continued to renew his seat in the Senate.
Ivanka Trump was born in Manhattan, New York, on October 30, 1981 as a result of Trump’s relationship with the Czech-American model Ivana Marie Zelníčková. He studied at Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Connecticut, and at the Chapin School in New York. After graduation, he spent two years at Georgetown University and then moved on to graduate from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania to graduate with an economics degree.
