Daily US Times: President Donald Trump is angry at his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner over their plan to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration, a Republican source told Insider.
Business Insider reported that a rift has opened between President Trump and his own family members, as well as other former allies, in the aftermath of his supporters storming the US Capitol last Wednesday.
Citing a Republican source close to the White House, the Insider reported that Mr Trump’s adult sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are now some of the only people who are talking with him.
On Friday, Trump said that he would not be attending President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, breaking a long-standing norm in US democracy.
But the Daily Mail reported that Ivanka Trump planned to attend the inauguration. A White House source told the outlet that Ivanka, one of the advisors to the President, “is worried that her promising political career is in jeopardy and she’s doing whatever she can to save her reputation.”
Another White House source denied to the Mail that she plans to attend the inauguration.
A rift with family members only leaves Donald Trump further isolated as even some of his closest allies have turned against him in the aftermath of the Capitol riot.
A pro-Trump mob entered the Capitol on January 6, after the US president addressed them and hold them to march on the building.
The violent mob broke windows and stormed the building, forcing lawmakers to be evacuated while voting to confirm Democrat Joe Biden’s win. Five people, including one police officer, died as a result.
