Ivanka 2024? Cryptic Iowa tweet goes viral, sparking rumors galore
Suddenly, Ivanka Trump is causing quite a stir with political rumors of her running for office. Some say she is weighing a run for the U.S. Senate or as Florida governor. She would have to be a resident for seven years to be governor. But others are claiming that Ivanka will run for the presidency in 2024. A tweet that the eldest daughter of President Trump just sent out is raising eyebrows in political circles causing whispers that she may have national aspirations.
Ivanka tweeted out that she loves Iowa, using an exclamation point for extra emphasis. Her tweet went viral immediately with over 10,000 likes.
She was retweeting a tweet from Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds of Iowa, who wrote “On this day in 1846, President James K. Polk signed a bill making Iowa the 29th state in the Union. Happy Statehood Day to the great State of Iowa, and to all who proudly call her home.”
Political pundits looking for any rumor to seize upon lapped it up and ran with the possibility of another President Trump… this time, a woman.
Iowa’s caucuses have kicked off the presidential nominating calendar for nearly half a century. The Hawkeye State is a must stop for White House hopefuls.
Ivanka was last in Iowa for a two-day swing on the eve of November’s election, campaigning for her father as well as for GOP Sen. Joni Ernst’s reelection. President Trump defeated President-elect Joe Biden by 8 points in Iowa, and Ernst ended up easily winning what was expected to be a difficult reelection.
She also traveled to Iowa just before the 2018 election to campaign for Reynolds as she ran for a full four-year term as governor.
There is likely to be more than one Trump running for political office in the near future. It is said that President Trump himself will run again in 2024 and he has a massive political war chest to support that move. Donald Trump Jr. is also rumored to have presidential ambitions. All three Trumps are wildly popular and cause shivers to go down liberal spines. Meanwhile, daughter-in-law Lara Trump has been mentioned as a potential candidate for the Senate in North Carolina.
While at a campaign stop in the battleground state of New Hampshire in August, immediately after the Republican National Convention, the president suggested the possibility of his daughter someday running for the White House.
Trump slammed Kamala Harris at the time saying the senator from California was not the kind of woman who could make history as the first female president due to her failed bid for the Democratic nomination.
He then dropped a political bomb, “They’re all saying, ‘We want Ivanka!'” as he pointed to cheering supporters near the stage. “I don’t blame them,” he continued.
“Ivanka definitely has political ambitions, no question about it,” a source told CNN. “She wants to run for something, but that still needs to be figured out.”

Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, have served as advisers to the president for the past four years. The couple purchased a lot for more than $30 million on the ultra-exclusive Indian Creek Island, near Miami, Florida. The 1.8-acre estate previously belonged to singer Julio Iglesias. The island is known for its high security, with a 13-member police force for 29 homes.
Florida might be an option in a Senate race in 2022 when current Republican incumbent Marco Rubio’s seat is up for re-election.
“Marco Rubio is up for reelection in 2022 and is expected to run again. But I wouldn’t think Rubio would deter her if she wanted to run. The last time Marco Rubio ran against a Trump in Florida, in the 2016 presidential primary, Rubio was crushed by 19 percentage points,” Adam C. Smith, a consultant with Mercury Public Affairs, told CNN.
“Normally, you’d expect a credible candidate for U.S. Senate to spend years building a political and financial network, but those normal rules would not apply to Ivanka. I think she’d be the immediate frontrunner if she ran for U.S. Senate against Rubio, given her father’s popularity in the Sunshine State,” Smith said.
A source close to Trump cautioned against reading too much into the house purchase and chatter about her political ambitions and said that she and Kushner had been looking for a new Florida home for a while.
Meanwhile, the oh so tolerant left reacted to the potential political ambitions of Ivanka Trump in a way only they know how – with vulgarity and hate: (** Language warning)
She’s going to run for Senate in FL. 😂😂😂

Wow, after 39 years on this planet, Ivanka found out Iowa is a state. Just think, once you move to your private office island in FL, financed through your grifting while Daddy in office, you will never have to go back.

Don’t even think about it… Your daddy couldn’t handle it, you definitely won’t…

This Iowan wants you to take a long walk off a short cliff.

Vanki, daddy will trade a pardon for a lap dance. Jared will have to watch.

No. Don’t come here. We will NOT vote for you.

You can’t run for political office from prison, or Moscow, Ivanka.
