Donald Trump turned on his daughter Ivanka Trump after her testimony before the committee investigating the January 6 uprising revealed that she did not believe the 2020 presidential election had been rigged.
Her words, given in a videotaped statement, were played out during Thursday night’s prime-time hearing.
The former president said Friday that Ivanka was “not involved in watching” the results of the 2020 election.
“Ivanka Trump was not involved in viewing or studying the election results. She was already checked out and, in my opinion, was just trying to be respectful of Bill Barr and his position as Attorney General (he was worthless),’ Trump wrote on Truth Social, the network he helped set up after he went off Twitter. banned. †
It was a shocking turn of events. Trump and his daughter were known for their close relationship and she was seen as his favorite child. She retired as an adviser to his White House, and Trump often said she could become president one day.
The former president has repeatedly pushed the false claim that he won the 2020 election over Joe Biden, despite numerous recounts and lawsuits proving otherwise.

In April, Ivanka Trump spent eight hours testifying before the House committee investigating the attack on the Capitol, where Donald Trump supporters tried to block the certification of the election.
During Thursday’s prime-time hearing, committee members played videotaped testimony from Bill Barr and Trump campaign officials, showing that they had told Trump that he had lost the race at the White House.
In the clip of Barr’s testimony, he said he had three conversations with Trump about the 2020 election results.
“One was on November 23. One was on December 1 and one was on December 14, and I’ve been through a kind of give and take of those discussions. And in that context, I made it clear that I didn’t agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out stuff like this, which I told the president was bullshit,” he said.
