As President Donald Trump continues to cry fraud over the US election, there’s one member of his famous family who is keeping very quiet about her father’s loss.

On Saturday, Democrats celebrated as Joe Biden was named president-elect and Kamala Harris vice-president elect of the United States after a tense few days awaiting results.

However, in the White house the scenes were very different, with Donald Trump and his sons Eric and Donald Trump Jr taking to Twitter to furiously tweet about ‘illegal votes’ and calling for the count to stop.

Meanwhile, 39-year-old Ivanka Trump, who has been by her father’s side for the duration of his presidency, as White House advisor, hasn’t Tweeted about the election since Friday, with some sources claiming she’s quietly asking President Trump to concede the election.

While the idea of Donald Trump Jr. running for president in 2024 has been touted online, it seems there’s another member of the family who is hot on his heels.

“Ivanka has her own agenda. She's had her eyes on the desk behind the Oval Office since day one and she's not about to burn any bridges by mouthing off like Don Jr. who keeps lashing out on Twitter,” an insider told the Daily Mail.

“Everything she puts out is calculated and well thought out because she's always looking at the big picture.”

It’s also claimed Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, is even asking the President to concede.

Trump’s wife, Melania, tweeted on Monday about protecting democracy, however she did echo her husband’s rhetoric around illegal votes.

“The American people deserve fair elections. Every legal – not illegal – vote should be counted.

We must protect our democracy with complete transparency,” the first lady tweeted.

However, a source told CNN that in private, Melania has given Trump her opinion that he should accept the defeat with grace.

"She has offered it, as she often does," the source told CNN.

According to ABC’s Jonathan Karl Melania has been trying to strategise how the family can exit the White House with grace.

“There have been conversations, conversations that I am told include the first lady about how to convince him to make something of a graceful exit,” Karl said.
