Ivanka Trump broke her silence on her father’s indictment, posting a bland 27-word statement on Instagram Friday morning.

The post read: “I love my father and I love my country. Today I am pained for both. I appreciate the voices across the political spectrum expressing support and concern.”


Previous reports stated that Ivanka has been distancing herself from the legal and political chaos surrounding her father.

Ivanka has reportedly wanted to be finished with politics – she has been absent from her father’s public campaign efforts to regain office. In a statement, Ivanka said she has chosen to prioritize her kids and family.

Her husband Jared Kushner called the indictment “troubling” and claimed that it’s evidence that Democrats are afraid of the “political strength” of his father-in-law.

Donald Trump Jr. criticized the indictment on his show Triggered with Don Jr Thursday night, calling it “communist-level s—.”

This is the first time a current or former president has faced criminal charges. The Manhattan grand jury had been hearing evidence on whether Donald Trump used his company’s money to make alleged hush-money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels just days before the 2016 presidential election.

Court officials said that Donald Trump is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday afternoon.
