Ivanka Trump is sticking to campaigning for just her father for now. The fashion designer, 34, told Harper’s Bazaar in the September 2016 issue that no, she doesn’t plan on getting into politics.
“I made the mistake of once saying, ‘Never say never,’” the mom of three clarified to the magazine of rumors she’s looking to place her hat in the ring. “I do believe that in life there are so many things I’m doing today that I never thought I’d be doing, so I generally take that perspective. … But, no, it’s not something I think I would ever do.”
That said, she did prove that she’s capable of standing on her own after she introduced her dad, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, ahead of his RNC speech last month. Some on Twitter even suggested that the fashion designer should run for president in place of her controversial father.
“His campaign is his campaign,” Ivanka told Harper’s Bazaar when asked about calling the shots for the former Apprentice host’s campaign. “We have worked together for over a decade, and I love my father, I respect my father. I also understand him and how he thinks. … [But] my role is daughter. I’m his daughter. … My siblings and I volunteer our opinions, solicited or not, and I think most children do that with their parents.”
Her dad’s campaign also hasn’t impacted her friendship with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea Clinton, either.
“I still consider her a very close friend, and she considers me as well,” she told the mag. “We have a great relationship. I’m not running for public office, and neither is she, so of course we’re still friends.”
