Donald Trump turned on his daughter Ivanka Trump after her testimony to the committee investigating the January 6th insurrection revealed she didn’t think the 2020 presidential election was rigged.

Her words, given in a video-taped deposition, were played during Thursday night’s prime time hearing.

The former president said on Friday that Ivanka was ‘not involved in looking’ at the results of the 2020 election. 

‘Ivanka Trump was not involved in looking at, or studying, Election results. She had long since checked out and was, in my opinion, only trying to be respectful to Bill Barr and his position as attorney general (he sucked),’ Trump wrote on Truth Social, the network he helped establish after he was banned from Twitter.

It was a shocking turn of events. Trump and his daughter were known for their close relationship and she was seen as his favorite child. She severed as an adviser in his White House and Trump often said she could be president one day.

The former president has repeatedly pushed the false claim he won the 2020 election over Joe Biden despite numerous recounts and lawsuits showing otherwise.

The House panel investigating January 6th showed video of Ivanka Trump testifying that she accepted Barr's rejection of her father's election fraud claims

In the clip of her testimony given to the committee, she is shown backing up Trump Attorney General Bill Barr’s assertion that the election wasn’t rigged.

‘I respect Attorney General Barr. So I accepted what he said — was saying,’ she says.

In April, Ivanka Trump spent eight hours testifying before the House committee investigating the attack on the Capitol, where Donald Trump supporters attempted to stop the certification of the election.

During Thursday’s prime time hearing, committee members played video taped testimony from Bill Barr and Trump campaign officials that showed they had told Trump he had lost the White House race.

In the clip of Barr’s testmony,e said he had three conversations with Trump about the 2020 election results.

‘One was on November 23. One was on December 1, and one was on December 14, and I’ve been through sort of the give and take of those discussions. And in that context, I made it clear I did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out this stuff, which I told the President was bulls***,’ he said.
