  • Ivanka
    Trump
    is
    shuttering her fashion brand,
    the company announced on
    Tuesday. 
  • The first daughter said in a statement: “My focus for
    the foreseeable future will be the work I am doing here in
    Washington.”
  • The decision to close the company has sparked questions
    about Ivanka Trump’s future in politics. 

 

Ivanka Trump is
shutting down her fashion brand.
And, her decision is raising
questions about the first daughter’s political future. 

“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,” Trump said in a statement. “So making this decision
now is the only fair outcome for my team and partners.”

Ivanka Trump’s fashion line has inspired
both backlash and admiration
across the United States since
Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Trump stepped back from the
day-to-day operations of the brand when she became a top White
House adviser in January 2017. 

With her promise to focus on Washington, many people saw Trump’s
decision to shut down the fashion brand as evidence of mounting
political aspirations. 

Some on the right are already celebrating a potential 2024
presidential campaign from the first daughter. 

At least some people on the left are making similar predictions —
but regarded the potential political dynasty in a very different
light. 

Some felt the decision was cause for concern and made comparisons
to authoritarian regimes’ passing of power. 

A number
of people 
are already
discussing
a
conspiracy theory
that this could be the first step toward President Trump
appointing his daughter as the next president of the United
States. 

Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner,
reportedly made a deal
that if the opportunity came for
either of them to run for president, it would be Ivanka,
according to Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury,” published
earlier in 2018.
