Mr Trump has confirmed he will break with tradition by not being present at the ceremony which marks the handover of presidential powers. He will join only a handful of US presidents in doing so.
However, Ivanka has said she wants to make an appearance at the event in order to come across as “a good sport,” a ‘White House insider’ told the Daily Mail.
The President’s daughter, 39, is said to be concerned that her “political career is in jeopardy” and is “doing whatever she can to save her reputation”.
Mr Trump has allegedly hit back at the idea, with the source claiming the President said the move would be “an insult” and could actually cost her supporters rather than gain or retain them.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

He also said it would be “the worst decision she could ever make”, they add.
Mr Trump said he would not be attending Mr Biden’s inauguration in a tweet issued last week, before he was spectacularly banned from the platform.
He wrote: “To all those who have asked, I will not be going to the inauguration on January 20th”.
