After former President Donald Trump hinted at last week's Conservative Political Action Conference about a potential White House run in 2024, there was chatter that his eldest daughter Ivanka Trump or another family member could serve as his running mate.

"The idea of a dynastic ticket would give the 45th president time to choose among Junior, Ivanka, and the budding politician Lara, leaving Mike Pence mulling the price of his one moment of independence," Ed Kilgore of New York magazine noted on Wednesday.

Donald Trump's favoritism towards Ivanka Trump has been public for several years. Former Donald Trump campaign deputy Rick Gates wrote in his book, "Wicked Game" that the 45th president had wanted Ivanka Trump as his 2016 running mate. In October 2018, Donald Trump publicly stated that Ivanka Trump would make an "incredible" U.S. ambassador to the U.N.

Any decision to go with Ivanka Trump or another family member would effectively leave out Pence, who in January declined the president's request to reject Electoral College votes from certain states to win a second term.

Along with inciting the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, Donald Trump also slammed his former vice-president by tweeting Pence “didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country and our Constitution.”

Donald Trump has yet to announce whether he will again run for president but those close to him told Bloomberg News that Pence won’t be considered for a running mate in 2024.

“Privately, he’s discussed alternatives to Pence as he takes stock of who he believes stood with him at the end of his term and who didn’t, according to two of the people,” Bloomberg reported.

Ivanka Trump, 39, has not yet stated if she has political aspirations. She recently declined to run against Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., in 2022. Donald Trump Jr. has also declined to run for political office.

Donald Trump's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, 38, is reportedly considering running for the North Carolina Senate seat being vacated by Republican Richard Burr. She is married to Donald Trump's son, Eric Trump.

9. A report in The Hill claimed that Ivanka Trump was looking to take over the White House office space that the first lady would usually occupy. We have no idea how his wife Melania felt about this, but can definitely take a few guesses! Imagine if his daughter were the First Lady instead – it seems like that’s his dream come true. IBTimes
