Former White House Senior Adviser and the eldest daughter of former President Donald Trump, Ivanka, has spoken with Florida Senator Marco Rubio and told him that in 2022 she will not run for the seat the lawmaker could vacate. Nick Iacovella, Rubio’s spokesman, confirmed the news to The New York Times.
“Marco spoke with Ivanka a few weeks ago,” Iacovella told the Times. “Ivanka offered her support for Marco’s re-election. They had a great chat.” He added that in their conversation several weeks ago the two also discussed appearing at a joint public event.
The contents of the conversation were revealed a day after former President Trump re-emerged on the public stage after nearly a month of self-imposed silence by conducting a series of interviews related to the death of conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh.
Rubio, who was first elected from the state in 2010, will run for his third term in the Senate next year.
The Senator and the former President had their differences during the 2016 Republican presidential primary campaign, but their relationship became closer after Trump was elected to the White House.
