On Friday, Ivanka Trump acted in support of her father – the first US president to be indicted for criminal offenses related to an alleged payment made during the 2016 election cycle that was meant to buy down a porn actress’s silence. Undeterred by this historic event and determined to show solidarity with her dad, she took action.
According to The New York Times, Trump’s two sons ; They, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric, were the first to show solidarity with their father, who will appear in court next April.
The newspaper described Ivanka’s position as a “silent statement,” referring to what she posted on Instagram about the ongoing interactions of the case.
“I love my parents, and I love my country. Today, I ache for both of them,” Ivanka wrote. “I appreciate the supportive voices from the political community, in their expressions of support and concern.”
This statement was described as muted because it was brief in expressing solidarity with Trump, who is facing legal troubles as he seeks to return to the White House through the 2024 elections.
Ivanka held the position of advisor in her father’s administration, and her husband, Jared Kushner, was also a prominent advisor in the Trump administration.
The authorities are scheduled to obtain his fingerprints and photograph from Trump in a New York court, days later, as he became the first former US president to face criminal charges in a case related to the money he paid in 2016 to silence a porn star named Stormy Daniels.
Trump was formally charged Thursday in New York. While Trump is trying to return to the presidency after losing the 2020 elections to Joe Biden.
