Ivanka Trump said soon after Donald Trump launched his 2024 campaign for president that she would support her father "outside the political arena."

The big picture: The former president's elder daughter served as a senior adviser in the Trump White House. But she told Fox News Digital late Tuesday that she's "choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family."

Worth noting: Ivanka Trump was not present at her father's announcement at his Florida home that he's running for president again.

  • However, her husband, Jared Kushner, who served as a senior adviser in the Trump administration, was present for the launch at Mar-a-Lago.

What she's saying: "I do not plan to be involved in politics," Ivanka Trump told the outlet.

  • "While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena. I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and will always be proud of many of our administration’s accomplishments." 

Editor's note: This article has been updated to note that former White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump was not present at former President Trump's 2024 campaign launch, but her husband, Jared Kushner, was.
