A love story set in America. In 2007, when they were both 25, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner met at a business lunch.
In February 2015, Donald Trump’s daughter told Vogue that the commercial real estate broker and friend who put her and Kushner together made them think that the only reason they were interested in each other was for business. “Whenever we see them, we’re like, ‘The best deal we ever made!'”
Ivanka and the founder of Affinity Partners got married at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, in October 2009. This was years before her father ran for president in 2016.
The former White House senior advisor said of Kushner, “His own dreams are big, and I love that in someone, but he’s very calm and relaxed.” “The world could fall apart around him, and he wouldn’t care. He looks for ways to solve problems. Also, it was nice to meet someone who is a good person for real. I don’t think that’s a given. I feel very lucky to have met a great boy from New Jersey.”
Ivanka also talked about how she decided to become Jewish so she could be with Jared, whose family is Orthodox Jewish. “It’s been such a good choice in my life. I’m very modern, but I’m also very old-fashioned, and I think that’s an interesting contrast that comes from how I was raised. “I really think that Judaism makes a great plan for how to connect with family,” she said.
When Donald was officially sworn in as president in January 2017, the couple, who both went to schools in the Ivy League, worked as senior advisors. After the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, they stopped backing the real estate mogul’s claims that the 2020 presidential election, which he lost to Joe Biden, was rigged.
In June 2022, Kushner told the January 6 committee of the U.S. House of Representatives that he told Donald not to listen to Rudy Giuliani, who was spreading ideas about election fraud, about how to run the country. Ivanka told the committee that she believed then-Attorney General William Barr when he told her that there was no proof that the election was rigged in Biden’s favor.
“It changed how I saw things. I have a lot of respect for Attorney General Barr, so I believed what he said,” she said at the time.
Ivanka and her husband have three children: Arabella, born in 2011, Joseph, born in 2013, and Theodore, born in 2016.
In October 2017, the former judge of “The Apprentice” said of her children, “When I get home late and tired and tiptoe into their bedrooms and see these three healthy, lovely, sleeping kids, I feel very blessed.”
Scroll down to see how Ivanka and Jared have been together over the years:
In the same year that Kushner asked her to marry him with a 5.22-carat diamond ring, they got married at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.
According to the 2019 book Kushner, Inc., Donald was “baffled” and “confused” by the wedding, which followed conservative Jewish tradition by giving shawls to women as they arrived.
In July, the couple who used to work in the White House had their first child, a daughter named Arabella. “It’s so much fun for Jared and me to play with our daughter! Arabella Rose is too cute for words. “She is a true blessing,” the new mom wrote at the time on Twitter.
In December, when her father was running for president, the former model gave birth to their third child, Theodore. “Jared and I feel so lucky to be able to tell everyone about the birth of Theodore James Kushner. Theodore the baby. “My heart is full,” she wrote at the time on her Facebook page.
At the Liberty Ball, which was a party for Donald’s inauguration, the two danced together.
They moved their family to Washington, D.C., in the same month. The Wall Street Journal says that Ivanka and Jared paid $15,000 a month to rent their home in the Kalorama area. During Donald’s time as president, both of them were his top advisors.
They had dinner at Camp David with family and friends to mark 10 years of marriage. “A small group of family and friends were there, and it couldn’t have been nicer. Camp David is a unique spot. I will pay for everything about the event!” Donald wrote via Twitter of the festivities.
Ivanka and Jared Kushner kept supporting and campaigning for the 45th president of the United States. “Have you any idea who we’re going to vote for?” The woman from New York wrote the caption for an October Instagram photo of her and her husband smiling while standing next to her father with their mail-in ballots.
Four days after the attack on the Capitol building on January 6, the author of “Women Who Work” wrote an Instagram post about her husband. She wrote “Happy 40th birthday, my love” under a picture of Kushner with their three kids.
When they spoke to the January 6 committee of the U.S. House of Representatives in June, they stood together to contradict Donald’s claims that the 2020 presidential election was fixed against him.
