KEY POINTS

  • Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are rumored to apply to become members of Indian Creek's country club
  • Ivanka has to be nominated to make a formal application and become an official member 
  • The country club members are picky and many are objecting Ivanka's potential membership 

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner's future application for Indian Creek's country club might be rejected.

Ivanka got a lot of flak after calling the protesters during the violent riot at the Capitol "American patriots." The incident may have affected her family's chances of enjoying the country club at "The Billionaire's Bunker," according to a report.

In December, several outlets reported that the first daughter and her husband purchased an over $30 million home on Miami's high-security Indian Creek island. However, the homeowners don't get automatic membership in the country club and Ivanka's family might not have the privilege to enjoy it, according to an insider.

"You have to be nominated and make a formal application. But it only takes one member to object against any new member, and many members are objecting, particularly after the events at the Capitol on Jan. 6," a local source told Page Six

"Jared and Ivanka can lunch with their fellow ‘patriots’ at Mar-a-Lago. The Indian Creek Country Club members are very picky and the word is that Javanka need not apply."

The club has reportedly been mired in controversy because in the past, it only permitted a handful of Jewish people and people of color in its membership. However, a separate source said the couple had already been made to feel welcome on the island that is largely Republican. They allegedly received multiple invitations to dine with their future neighbors.

Ivanka and Jared have been planning for their post-administration life. An insider previously said that they wanted to move to Florida because it offers "potential political opportunities."

"Ivanka definitely has political ambitions, no question about it. She wants to run for something, but that still needs to be figured out," an unnamed source said.

Adam C. Smith, former Tampa Bay Times political editor and now a consultant with Mercury Public Affairs, speculated that Ivanka could run for senate. However, if she is eyeing the governor's mansion, she would have to wait seven years because the state requires a resident to live that long in the area before taking office.

Meanwhile, many have expressed their disappointment in Ivanka after the Capitol riot. Several advised the first daughter to just kiss her political ambitions goodbye, and some blamed her dad, President Donald Trump, for ruining her chances at joining politics.
