The daughter of US President Donald Trump campaigned ardently throughout the election process, which has resulted in her father losing power to Democrat rival Joe Biden. Although Mr Trump has continued to make baseless claims that electoral fraud had occurred in the vote, Mr Biden has been recognised as the President-elect and will assume office in January 2021. It remains unclear what the likes of Mr Trump and Ivanka will do next, but some have touted the 39-year-old as a possible Republican candidate in a future election.
Scrutiny would follow her relationship with Mr Kushner, who she has three children with, like it did during Mr Trump’s campaign.
The couple appear happy while in public, but body language and relationship expert Nicole Moore argues that Ivanka shows more warmth to her father, than Mr Kushner.
After studying clips of the three out on the campaign trail and in public together, Ms Moore said that she “never came across Ivanka smiling that wide at Jared”, instead saving her big grins for Mr Trump.
She explained that Ivanka and Mr Kushner’s body language show “they don’t hate each other, and there is love there, but it’s not warm affection”.
Ms Moore also observed that “when someone is really in love, you literally can’t stop them from talking about the other person”, something the couple don’t appear to do.
The expert said that even though in most clips they would hold hands, “what’s missing are the true indicators of warmth” and a “romantic spark”.
She added on YouTube channel The List last month: “In nearly every clip of the couple together, they speak, they pose next to each other, it appears as if on the surface everything is hunky-dory.
“However, what’s missing is genuine displays of affection or exuberance about being partnered with each other.”

Ms Moore’s observations, however, were at odds with fellow expert Tonya Reiman, who argued the couple show a “good feeling” when they’re together.
She told Bustle in 2018: “They don’t talk over one another.
“When he walked in on her there was a good feeling, jovial. They complement each other.”
Previously, both have spoken about their “shared sense of ambition as a central pillar” of their relationship, and continue to ensure they have weekly date nights – although Ivanka joked in 2018 with Vogue, “my husband’s idea of a date night somehow always involves me looking into one of his development sites”.

She added: “I’m happy for him when he is in the office working late. I know how good that feels when you sit down and return emails.”
In typical fashion, and stealing a famous line Mr Trump would often use, she described her marriage as “the best deal we ever made”.
This is in stark contrast to Mr Kushner, who has remained tight-lipped while talking about his relationship, only saying he got “very lucky”.
Another trait they supposedly share, is the ability to act as Cupid, by being able to find partners for many of their friends.
Two years ago, she told US presenter Sean Hannity: “This is Jared and my secret talent – people don’t realise it’s our hidden skill, we’re matchmakers.
“Seven marriages, zero divorces. Hopefully, God-willing that continues.”
Both Ivanka and Mr Kushner had no prior political experience before they teamed up with Mr Trump on his successful 2016 campaign to become US President.
Mr Kushner was given particular praise after driving Mr Trump’s media strategy, at a time when some commentators branded the incumbent President’s campaign as a joke.
He argued seeing his father-in-law on the trail exposed “the problems and the change that he was fighting for”.
So far, Ivanka – and her father – have not commented on exactly what they will do next, but she appeared to wish to stay closer to politics with her next job.
During an interview with RealClearPolitics, before the election loss, Ivanka claimed to be a “pragmatist when it comes to everything”.
And when quizzed about being labelled a “populist”, the businesswoman added: “I think a lot of these labels, to be quite honest, are really limiting in terms of what you call yourself or how you identify… but I don’t reject that label at all.”
