What Life For Ivanka Will Be Like After The White House

Ivanka Trump had to leave her position in the White House after her father, Donald Trump, lost his bid for re-election, following a tumultuous term as president of the United States. For four years, Donald's eldest daughter was by her father's side, aiding him in many aspects of his presidency. But now that Joe Biden is the official occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, that means Ivanka has to figure out what to do next. After all, where do you go from the top?

Now that the dust has settled a bit, some of Ivanka's plans have solidified and gone public, such as where she'll live and with whom she'll spend time. Additionally, given how controversial her father's administration was, there's a lot about Ivanka's old life that might look very different now, from friendships to social events to where she hangs her hat. Curious to know more about what the future may hold for the allegedly favorite Trump daughter? Keep reading to discover what life for Ivanka will be after the White House, as some of it might surprise you.

New York might not be the same for Ivanka Trump anymore

Before Donald Trump was president and Ivanka Trump his advisor, both the father and the daughter called New York City home. Additionally, Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, used to frequent the most exclusive events in Manhattan, including the Met Gala, various awards shows, and parties with A-list attendees.

However, Ivanka and her family might not be received so warmly in New York City following her father's controversial tenure as president. At least, that's the opinion of Jill Kargman, a notable Manhattan resident who's rubbed elbows with the Trumps in the past. "[The President] was so awful and divisive about New York, saying it's a nightmare or that it's empty, or a has-been," she explained in an interview with CNN. "No one here is going to forget that. To even come back here after everything he's said, it's not going to work." Perhaps that's why Donald changed his permanent residence to the Sunshine State?

On top of that, some anti-Trump billboards popped up in New York City, courtesy of the Lincoln Project; some of them featured Ivanka and her husband smiling next to coronavirus stats. Yikes.

Ivanka Trump's social life might be different now

While some certainly agree that New York City will be a different place for Ivanka Trump after serving as her father's advisor, others have taken that a bit further. Namely, some of Ivanka's former friends and acquaintances have been vocal about how Ivanka's entire social life won't look remotely the same as it used to. "They'll be welcomed back by people who know the Trumps are as close as they'll get to power," a source shared with Vanity Fair. "But everyone with self-respect, a career, morals, respect for democracy, or who doesn't want their friends to shame them both in private and public will steer clear." Brrr, it just got cold in here.

Another source shared that while there will still be various events that Ivanka and her family can attend, it's only because they themselves would be the amusement for guests. "And Ivanka is no Princess Margaret and Jared is not the Duke of Windsor regaling guests with amusing bon mots to a captive audience," the insider quipped. "No one wants to hear about Sarah Huckabee's pies or Steve Bannon's shirts."

How will Ivanka Trump navigate Washington following her time in the White House?

From January of 2017 through January of 2021, Ivanka Trump called Washington, D.C. home. Of course, that was after a lifetime of being a resident of the Big Apple, but it still remains a very significant period of time in the eldest Trump daughter's life. That's when her father was the primary occupant of the White House, after all.

However, after Donald Trump's administration came to an end, Ivanka no longer had a need to stay in the capital, as far as we know. To that end, she and her family moved out of their D.C. digs, as noted by Realtor.com. And should Ivanka return to the area for one reason or another, a senior member of the Republican party said that things would be much different for the Trumps. "They only know the DC of being in power," they explained in an interview with CNN. "Wait until they realize no one is taking their calls."

As to what Ivanka would return to D.C for in the first place, that remains unknown at this time. Perhaps time will tell.

After leaving the White House, Ivanka Trump moved to this property in Florida

Given the frosty social climate Ivanka Trump may have to deal with in New York City, it's not surprising to learn that she joined her father in moving to South Florida after he lost the election. The Trumps do have a significant community of supporters in the Sunshine State, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. And it certainly is warmer than Manhattan in the wintertime, that's for sure.

As for where Ivanka will hang her hat, she'll be living the quintessential Florida condo lifestyle for at least a year, as noted by Mansion Global magazine. Specifically, she and her husband, Jared Kushner, signed a lease for a unit in the luxurious Arte residences, where a penthouse sold for over $30 million. Additionally, the seaside building was designed by architect Antonio Citterio and is shaped like a pyramid — talk about fancy! And, of course, one of the developers has worked with Donald Trump in the past.

Ivanka will enjoy amenities such as a heated indoor 75-foot pool, a rooftop tennis court, and fingerprint recognition technology. Seems on brand.

No longer in the White House, Ivanka Trump will permanently settle in this area

While Ivanka Trump will enjoy the sumptuous condo lifestyle in South Florida for a year, that's not going to be where she and her family stay on a permanent basis. The reason? Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, purchased a plot of land on Indian Creek Island in Miami-Dade County for a cool $30 million, according to Page Six. The island, which has only about 30 homes, is popularly referred to as the "Billionaire's Bunker," thanks to its 13-person police force and security bells and whistles.

As for the specifics of their purchase, it looks like Ivanka and Jared bought lot No. 4 from music legend Julio Iglesias in December of 2020. The bayfront plot sprawls out at 1.84 acres and boasts 200 feet of prime waterfront, with an annual tax bill of $472,764. Fellow Indian Creek Island residents include model Adriana Lima, former Philadelphia Eagles owner Norman Braman, hedge fund investor Eddie Lampert, former Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula, and billionaires Carl Icahn and Jeff Soffer.

While Ivanka and Jared's Miami island home will presumably be their primary home, they'll still own their Park Avenue residence and their New Jersey cottage.

Ivanka Trump might not be welcomed at her local Country Club

While Ivanka Trump and her family will surely enjoy life on Indian Creek Island once their new residence is built, they might not receive the warmest welcome from their neighbors. That's because rumor has it that residents of the Billionaire's Bunker aren't happy about what went down in D.C. before the inauguration in 2021. To that end, the exclusive country club on Indian Creek Island is reportedly snubbing Ivanka and Jared. "You have to be nominated and make a formal application," a source explained in a chat with Page Six. "But it only takes one member to object against any new member, and many members are objecting, particularly after the events at the Capitol on Jan. 6."

Indeed, it seems that Ivanka and Jared can't exactly put their past behind them, especially given Ivanka's (now deleted) tweet calling rioters "patriots." "The Indian Creek Country Club members are very picky and the word is that Javanka need not apply," the insider continued. "Jared and Ivanka can lunch with their fellow 'patriots' at Mar-a-Lago."

Will Ivanka Trump spend a lot of time at Mar-a-Lago?

Speaking of Mar-a-Lago, where Donald and Melania Trump live full-time with their son, Barron Trump, Ivanka Trump's new digs are about an hour away in Miami. While she's not exactly next-door neighbors with her father, Ivanka can certainly drop by the Palm Beach County resort whenever she likes. After all, given how close Ivanka reportedly is to her father, surely she'll want to catch up with him on a lunch date once in a while, at least.

However, according to CNN, there might be a little bit of tension amongst the Trumps in the wake of the insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021. For one, a source revealed that Melania "hasn't exactly rolled out the welcome mat" at Mar-a-Lago for any of her husband's eldest daughter. Additionally, there's reportedly "been some finger-pointing" amongst the siblings as their business interests may be impacted, again thanks to the Capitol riots. "I think this is one time the family has to acknowledge that their actions have had consequences," another source shared. It sounds like things have gotten complicated, for sure.

Will Ivanka Trump return to the Trump Organization in her post-White House life?

While Ivanka Trump worked closely with her father during his tenure as president as an advisor, that was far from the first time the pair of joined forces. According to The Guardian, Ivanka was a boardroom judge on Donald Trump's reality TV series, The Apprentice. Additionally, Ivanka "oversaw development and acquisitions" at The Donald's real estate firm, the Trump Organization.

Now that Ivanka is no longer working for her father in the White House, what will she do as a career? Well, there's a chance that she could return to the Trump Organization, but that might not be the best move for her if she's looking for job security. The reason? The Trump Organization fell under investigation by the New York state attorney general's office. Allegedly, Donald Trump's former fixer, Michael Cohen, revealed to Congress that he'd lied about the value of Donald's assets to get better loans and policies. That prompted the probe into the Trump Organization, which specifically sought to determine if the value of the Seven Springs property in New York State was "wrongly inflated." Confused? So are we, but none of this sounds particularly good.

There's a good chance you'll see Ivanka Trump on television in the future

One thing that seems exceedingly likely is that we'll see Ivanka Trump on television now that she's no longer a denizen of Washington, D.C. That's familiar territory for the eldest Trump daughter, who's been on reality television in the past. "It was appearing on The Celebrity Apprentice next to their father, Donald Trump, that made Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric into primetime stars," a source told OK! magazine. "For the kids to return to reality TV shouldn't be a surprise and neither should be the fact that Ivanka is the family member that is getting the most offers, including interest from Dancing With the Stars." That has to be exciting for her!

However, it's less likely that we'll see Ivanka waltzing home with the Mirrorball Trophy and more probable that she'll put her business acumen to use on the small screen. "She isn't opposed to going back to reality shows," the insider continued. "But the shows she is looking to create are much more similar to The Celebrity Apprentice and Shark Tank than Dancing With the Stars or The Real Housewives."

Will Ivanka Trump run for office?

Perhaps the biggest rumors circulating about Ivanka Trump now that she's no longer in the White House is that she may run for office herself. As Tram Nguyen, co-executive director of The New Virginia Majority, tells it, Ivanka is in a pretty prime position to organize a campaign. "With [Ivanka's] massive name recognition and a political machinery behind her, theoretically, she could run anywhere," she explained in an interview with InStyle. "She can circumvent many of the challenges faced by female candidates such as fundraising and grip-and-grin campaigning."

So what office would Ivanka likely run for? According to CNN, she might give Florida senator Marco Rubio a run for his money as he's up for re-election in 2022. And if she has her eye on the governor's mansion in Tallahassee, that's also a possibility — but not until she's lived in Florida for seven years minimum. And, of course, there's the possibility that Ivanka throws her hat into the 2024 presidential race, as noted by Vanity Fair – it's a job that her father had for four years, after all. We'll just have to wait and see where the wind blows.

Is Ivanka Trump going to return to the fashion world now that she's out of the White House?

Another possible option for Ivanka Trump now that she's left the White House is a potential return to the world of fashion. The eldest Trump daughter has been involved in style before, though she shut down her eponymous brand back in 2018. "After 17 months in Washington, I do not know when or if I will ever return to the business, but I do know that my focus for the foreseeable future will be the work I am doing here in Washington," Ivanka shared in a statement given to The Wall Street Journal.

But that was then, and this is now — and Ivanka is no longer constrained by her duties in Washington, D.C. So will Ivanka once again take to the design table to create a new brand of clothing? It's a definite possibility. However, critics of her previous work for her own brand had a lot of problems with it, as noted by Racked, who called her line "overpriced, poorly constructed, and unflattering on anyone who doesn't share Ivanka Trump's exact body type." Ouch. Maybe she should find another venture instead.

Ivanka Trump will still have the secret service protect her despite being out of the White House

Becoming a core part of the president's team in the White House most definitely changes people's lives, as it catapults you into the center of American politics and raises your profile enormously. That's certainly proven to be the case for Ivanka Trump, who's become a household name around the world thanks to her role in her father's administration.

It's not surprising, then, to learn that Ivanka will continue to be protected by members of the secret service now that she's left the White House, as noted by ABC News. Specifically, she will have their services for at least six months following Donald Trump's failed re-election campaign. Ivanka's spouse and siblings will also be under the watchful eye of the secret service until it's deemed that they're no longer needed.

As for whether or not the secret service agents tasked with ensuring Ivanka's safety will be allowed to use the restroom in her home, that remains to be seen. But given her track record (via The Washington Post), it's possible that will again be an issue. 

Ivanka Trump will likely keep her day-to-day routine

While Ivanka Trump may have gone through a lot of changes over the years — she's moved several times and has had as many career changes — there are a few things that have stayed the same for her. For one, she always has her husband, Jared Kushner, by her side. And as she tells it, she makes it a priority to spend quality time with him. "I love having dates with my husband," she revealed in a chat with Harper's Bazaar. "At least once a week, we have dinner just the two of us."

Additionally, Ivanka and Jared make a point of engaging with their children, Joseph, Arabella, and Theodore Kushner, every morning. "Between seven and eight, Jared, myself and the kids hang out," she continued. They also sit down and have breakfast together as a family.

And, of course, given that Ivanka converted to Judaism when she married her husband, they unplug from the world on weekends. "We observe the Sabbath," she shared (via The Jerusalem Post). "From Friday to Saturday we don't do anything but hang out with one another."
