Donald Trump’s two sons, Eric and Donald Jr., and his daughter Ivanka have made so many appearances on television and the campaign trail in recent months — and have generally been considered very good at speaking on behalf of their father’s presidential bid — that many people have wondered: Will any of the Trump children be the next members of the family to enter the political arena?
Well, as far as Ivanka Trump is concerned, there was no hesitation when it came time to answer to that question.
“Oh gosh! I don’t think so,” she said Tuesday in an interview with Fox News Channel’s Greta Van Susteren.

Trump admitted there are issues she is passionate about, however, “Running for office is not something I want to be doing.”
When asked to respond to the theory that her father and Bernie Sanders became so popular with voters because they were outsiders, Ivanka Trump said she thought people are dissatisfied with the way the country is going and wanted someone capable of changing the direction.

She also remarked people believe an outsider may bring a new perspective as well as new solutions.
Trump also suggested her each time her father created a job or built a skyscraper, he was gaining experience which would help him repair the dilapidated infrastructure of the country.
Van Susteren asked Trump to give her thoughts on the controversy surrounding her father’s comments to the family of the late U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan. She went on to say Capt. Khan was unarguably an American hero. “Everyone respects his sacrifice for this country, enormously,” Trump said.
