Outgoing United States (US) President Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka, has plans to attend Democrat Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20, to the chagrin of his father.
According to a report by Daily Mail, Ivanka will attend the ceremony to mark the commencement of Biden's new four-year term as president of the United States, to save her political career.
A source intimated to the publication:
"Ivanka is worried that her promising political career is in jeopardy and she's doing whatever she can to save her reputation."
Trump, who has, however, refused to accept the outcome of the presidential election where he lost to Biden, was enraged by his daughter's decision terming it as "an insult".
The 74-year-old according to an insider rebuked his daughter for wanting to engage with "crooks" who stole his votes.
The source further said Ivanka reportedly believes she would gain more supporters by attending Biden's swearing-in as the 46th US president by presenting herself as a "good sport".
Ivanka is an American businesswoman who has been serving as an adviser to her father Trump, and also as the director of the office of economic initiatives and entrepreneurship since 2017.
