Ivanka Trump wears high-cut swimsuit as she goes wakeboarding in Miami

Ivanka Trump seems to have found a new hobby to bide her time in Miami after revealing she was done with politics and would not be a part of her father’s 2024 campaign. 

The former White House senior adviser was spotted enjoying a wakeboarding lesson on Thursday, two days after she skipped out on her dad Donald Trump’s announcement speech at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. 

Ivanka, 41, didn’t appear to have any regrets as she hit the waves sporting a high-cut black swimsuit, a life vest, and a smile on her face.

Her long blonde hair was pulled back into a braid, and she wore a black cap to shield the sun from her eyes. 

She looked worlds away from the hustle and bustle of her old life in Washington, D.C. as she laughed and took advice from her instructor. 

Ivanka practiced keeping her balance on the wakeboard and seemed delighted by her success before she started working on standing up on her own. 

She appeared to be a natural and got up a number of times throughout the lesson, though occasionally lost her balance and fell back into the water.  

The born and bred New Yorker appears to be living it up in Florida, where water sports have become a natural pastime for her and her family.

Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, have been seen taking their three children —Arabella, 11, Joseph, 9, and Theodore, 6 — tubing on numerous occasions. 

After her lesson, she threw on a black tank dress that buttoned down the front and black sunglasses. She later slipped on her sandals and was seen leaving the marina carrying a large canvas tote. 

Ivanka didn’t appear to have on any jewelry aside from a band on her finger and a red string bracelet, which she has been wearing off and on for years, including at her sister Tiffany Trump’s wedding earlier this month. 

Although she hasn’t spoken about the purpose of the string, it does bear a resemblance to the type of red string that Kabbalah practitioners wear to ward off the ‘evil eye.’

The former first daughter and her husband, Jared, have reportedly been comparing themselves to Game of Thrones’ Ned Stark when people ask them about their plans should Donald Trump be re-elected president in 2024.

The fictional Ned Stark was famously decapitated after he was lured into the political viper pit of Westeros’ capital at the request of his close friend King Robert Baratheon.

Jared and Ivanka have decided they enjoy their ‘gilded’ life in Miami too much to rejoin Trump on the campaign trail, according Vanity Fair.

The report came just a few days after Trump announced his plans to run in 2024, which was quickly followed by a statement from Ivanka announcing she would not be involving herself in the campaign. 

The mother of three looked happy as could be wakeboarding — just as the Vanity Fair article detailing her and Jared’s decision to step back from politics was published.

In the piece, it was claimed that the couple is embracing a quiet life in Florida, having escaped what they reportedly refer to as ‘the jackals’ in Washington, D.C.

According to Vanity Fair, Ivanka has ‘drawn a boundary around her relationship’ with her father for the first time after having spent years working closely with him.

She appearing on his reality show The Apprentice, working inside his company, and then serving as a senior advisor in his administration, alongside her husband.

The blunt line drawn by Ivanka was evident to all on Tuesday night, when Trump announced his 2024 run from Mar-a-Lago — an event from which his daughter was conspicuously absent.

She soon released a statement expressing her support for her father, but announcing that she would not be involving herself in her politics.

‘I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family,’ she said. ‘I do not plan to be involved in politics. While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena.’

Jared and Ivanka moved to Florida after they left their posts at the White House, and quickly began laying down new roots.

Last year, they scooped up a $24 million waterfront mansion that sits on 1.3 acres on Indian Creek — an exclusive island that is known as the ‘Billionaire Bunker.’

It is believed that they plan on moving into the spatial 8,500-square-foot abode once their extensive renovations are completed. They bought the fixer-upper a little over a year after they dropped $31.8 million on a two-acre plot of land on Indian Creek in 2020

In the meantime, they have been living in a ritzy three-floor apartment Arte Surfside,  one of the most expensive condo buildings in Surfside, Florida. 

The residence, which is nestled between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour has a tennis court on the roof, and they have their own private pool and yard.

According to Vanity Fair, they have become such regulars at high-end restaurants like Carbone that customers barely turn their heads when they walk in these days.

‘No one cares anymore. They’re all rich and spending a lot of money,’ a source told the magazine. ‘That’s the equalizer, and it’s stronger than anything else they’d agree or disagree on. Though it happens that they mostly agree here.’

The publication suggests that they have ‘found their crew’ in Florida after having been ostracized by many of the high-society connections they once socialized with while living in New York City.

In Miami, their close connection to Trump’s presidency is not seen as a smear on their reputations  — quite the opposite in fact.

‘At many restaurants, owners and servers pat Jared on the back, a thank-you to Trump pushing to open businesses back up during the pandemic,’ the piece stated.

The couple has been seen living it up in the sun since they left D.C.

Pictures of them frolicking on the beach with their kids have become mainstays in the tabloids, and Ivanka has posted pictures of herself wakeboarding, fishing with their kids, and vacationing across the world.

Ivanka has also been photographed with an ensemble of celebrity friends, most notably being spotted hanging out with Kim Kardashian a few weeks ago.

Jared seems to be thriving, as well. He wrote and published a memoir, Breaking History, which enjoyed a run at the top of The New York Times Best Seller List despite critics lambasting it in their reviews.

Meanwhile, his new private equity firm, Affinity Partners, has at least $3 billion in backing from Saudi partners. 

The firm has a glorious office overlooking the ocean, and received at least 400 pitches in its first year, according to Vanity Fair.

Ivanka looked relaxed and carefree as she stepped out for a walk on Thursday afternoon following her wakeboarding lesson. 

She changed into a black three-quarter-sleeve top, cream linen pants with a belt, and pair of black slip-on espadrilles. She topped off the casual, yet elegant look with dark shades, simple jewelry, and a black leather bucket bag. 

Ivanka’s long blonde hair was loose around her shoulders and blew in the wind as she enjoyed her stroll just days after she officially wiped her hands of her father’s presidential campaign.
