Ivanka Trump looked thrilled to have traded the bitter Washington, D.C. weather in favor of the bright Miami sunshine on Tuesday, when she was pictured helping to hand out boxes of food to families – amid reports that she is planning a move to Florida when her father leaves the White House.
The 39-year-old flew into the Sunshine State after a visit to Georgia, where she was busy stumping for the Republicans in the Senate runoffs. But while her work in Miami was focused on food, she still found a way to promote her father’s political message by having President Trump speak to volunteers about the ‘rigged election’ over speakerphone.
Speaking via his daughter’s cellphone, Donald spent 20 minutes addressing the crowds at the event, once again slamming ‘rigged’ votes, while vowing to ‘fight’ to the bitter end to have the election result overturned.

Special guest: At one point during the event, Ivanka’s father, President Donald Trump, phoned to speak to volunteers about his ‘fight’ to overturn the ‘rigged election’
Saying hello! President Trump spoke on the phone for more than 20 minutes, while supporters were heard clapping, cheering, and yelling out, ‘Four more years’
‘They took hundreds of thousands of ballots, it was a rigged election, we are fighting it,’ he is heard saying in Local 10 video footage of the call.
Direct dial: The caller ID for Trump’s call was ‘White House PT’ – likely meaning ‘private’ – and images show he was on the phone for more than 20 minutes
‘We got 75 million votes, that’s the most ever gotten by a sitting President by a lot. People are never going to forget. We are fighting very, very hard.
Ivanka held her phone up – showing the caller ID ‘White House PT’, likely meaning ‘private’ – so that the supporters crowded around her could hear, and they were seen clapping and yelling ‘four more years!’ as President Trump spoke.
The call, which looks to have lasted more than 20 minutes, came as Ivanka was seen carrying boxes of farm-fresh food to families in their cars.
The First Daughter happily chatted with supporters, even posing for selfies with several maskless people as they pulled up in their vehicles.
Despite having to heft around large boxes of food, Ivanka was dressed to the nines for the event, wearing a pretty $79 polka-dot sun dress from Zara, which she paired with pointed-toe flats, and a pair of gold hoop earrings.
She finished off her look with a blue tie dye face mask, and had her blonde locks pulled back in a braid that hung down her back.

Ivanka’s Miami outing came 24 hours after she landed in Georgia, where she attended a rally event held in support of Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue.
The trio took to the stage in Fulton County, where they addressed crowds of maskless supporters and urged them to cast their votes early ahead of the January 5 election, and ‘defend the majority.’
Mom-of-three Ivanka put on a very chic show for the event, modeling a chic $2,295 military-style double-breasted Altuzarra coat, which she wore over a cozy cream turtleneck and skinny jeans.

The coat is clearly a favorite of Ivanka’s; the First Daughter has modeled the design on a number of occasions in the past, including during an outing in New York City back in October 2016.
Then, she went bare-legged, pairing the coat with some heels and a small black handbag. Just a few weeks later she modeled the design again, this time choosing to don a pin-stripe skirt and a nude sweater.
However, Ivanka decided to shake things up for the coat’s latest appearance, wearing it with a pair of tan knee-high boots, a large black handbag, and a black face mask.
Her long blonde hair was styled in loose waves, and while her traveling outfit was more casual than usual, she was still sporting smokey eye makeup.
Ivanka was seen walking down the front steps of her home a little after 9 a.m. before she hopped into the Secret Service SUV that was waiting for her at the curb.
Main event: In a post shared on her Instagram Stories, Ivanka revealed that other events scheduled to take place on Monday had been postponed because of the COVID relief vote
Message: In the post, Ivanka explained that she wanted to ‘focus on what’s most important – support for hard-working Americans’

Encouraging: Ivanka made a passionate speech to supporters at the event, before later going into the crowd to greet people and take photos
Both she and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris visited Georgia on Monday to stump for their respective party’s candidates in the runoff elections, which will decide control of the Senate.
Republican Senator Perdue is running against Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff in one race, while the other pits GOP Senator Loeffler against Democrat Raphael Warnock.
Democrats need to win both of these races to get to a 50-50 tie in the Senate. If they do, Vice President-elect Harris can cast a tie-breaking vote, thus effectively ensuring them the majority.
Ivanka took to Instagram on Monday to share throwback photos of herself on the campaign trail with Senator Perdue in October.
‘Headed to Georgia this morning to campaign with my friends Senators @Perduesenate and @KLoeffler, both tireless warriors for Georgia workers, families, farmers, small business owners, service members and veterans!’ she captioned the images, adding the hashtag ‘#DefendtheMajority.’
After arriving in Fulton County, Ivanka was seen taking to the stage at a campaign rally alongside Loeffler and Perdue, with all three encouraging voters to cast their ballots early — before of the end of the year.
The mother-of-three was seen happily greeting the crowds that had gathered at the event once on-stage, before fist bumping Loeffler to welcome her to the rally. The two women also posed for a selfie, which the Senator shared on her Instagram and Twitter accounts.
‘A HUGE crowd joined @IvankaTrump, @Perduesenate, and me in Milton!’ she wrote. ‘These Patriots are FIRED UP to Hold The Line in Georgia and SAVE OUR COUNTRY!’
As well as snapping a photo with Loeffler, Ivanka also happily posed up for selfies with several maskless supporters – although she made sure to wear a face covering herself.
The First Daughter was originally due to make multiple stops in the greater Atlanta area, starting with a Fulton County ‘Early Vote Rally’ at Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub in Milton at noon; however, she revealed in an Instagram Stories post that the following appearances had been postponed in light of the COVID relief vote.

She had been scheduled to host a fireside chat at the Suwanee Pavilion in Suwane at 2 p.m, and then end the day with a stop at a Walton County GOP rally at Roy Roberts’ Farm in Monroe at 4 p.m, however both were called off.
‘Excited to be in Fulton County, GA this AM for an Early Voting event with @KLoeffler and @Perduesenate,’ she wrote. ‘Due to the COVID relief vote today, we’ll be postponing the rest of today’s events.
‘We must focus on what’s most important — support for hard working Americans. Relief is on the way!’
Meanwhile, Harris headed to Columbus, Georgia, to campaign with Warnock and Ossoff.
Ivanka’s trip to Georgia coincided with her husband Jared Kushner’s U.S. delegation to Israel and Morocco for discussions on the normalization deal the two Middle East countries reached earlier this month.
Jared, 39, arrived in Israel on Monday and joined Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a special tree-planting ceremony in Jerusalem. He is scheduled to head to Morocco on Tuesday.

The trip came just a few days after the family’s Hanukkah celebrations. Hanukkah began on Thursday, December 10, and ended on Friday, December 18, at sundown. Ivanka converted to Judaism to marry Jared, who is a Modern Orthodox Jew. They are raising their three children in the same faith.
Ivanka shared a photo marking the second night of Hanukkah as well as a family portrait on the last night of the Jewish holiday.
She has been sharing more and more personal pictures as her family’s time in the White House near its end.
It’s unclear if the Trump-Kushners will return to New York City, where they already have a home, but signs point to them ending up in Florida.
Speculation has been swirling that Ivanka will run for the U.S. Senate in Florida in 2022 after it was revealed that she and her husband Jared reportedly purchased a $31 million plot of land on Miami’s ‘Billionaire Bunker.’

Many believe that Ivanka and Jared will no longer be welcome in the same elite social circles they once ran in before her father became President — with the First Daughter’s close friend Georgina Bloomberg admitting that it would be ‘difficult’ for the couple to return to Manhattan life.
‘I think right now it’ll be a bit difficult for them coming back, because obviously this is something that is still very fresh and stoking everybody’s fire,’ she told the Daily Beast last month.
Georgina hopes that in the future people ‘will hopefully welcome them back’ — however, many reports have suggested that Ivanka and Jared may well be ‘shunned’ by the high-powered New Yorkers they once called friends.
Prior to Trump’s presidency, Ivanka and Jared regularly socialized with high-profile city dwellers and even attended the Met Gala on a number of occasions, where they schmoozed with some of the world’s most famous celebrities.
Given that the event is organized by Vogue editor-in-chief and outspoken Trump critic Anna Wintour, however, it seems unlikely that their pair will earn an invite to the prestigious event in the future.
