‘Dictator of the World’ Trump to face new challenges
Posted On August 9, 2021
President Donald Trump’s eldest son will face a new set of challenges as he continues his battle against cancer, his lawyer said on Thursday.
The White House lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, told reporters that the president’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, was in the hospital recovering from her third round of chemo treatments.
The family had planned to fly to Hawaii, Kasowitz said.
“I can’t speak to the specifics of what has happened to the family, but she is in good spirits and her spirits are very high,” Kasowitz told reporters.
Trump’s eldest child was in critical condition on Thursday after being hospitalized for nearly two weeks, after the Republican president abruptly canceled a visit to Japan earlier this month to recover from the cancer.
The president had said earlier that he planned to visit the Pacific island nation on April 9.
Aides have said the visit was planned as a show of support for Ivanka’s work and the families own business.
Trump and his family had been in Japan this week for a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and were returning home when Trump’s first daughter was diagnosed with the disease on Wednesday.
He was due to leave for California later that day.
The president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is also battling cancer, according to a White House official.
Trump announced earlier this week that Kushner had been diagnosed with Stage III melanoma, a form of the cancer that typically occurs in late-stage or less advanced stages.
He has undergone a series of surgeries to fight the disease.
Trump has been battling cancer for nearly a year, and in April said he would not attend his daughter’s inauguration.
He said he was taking a break from the battle for the rest of the year, but has been actively participating in his father-in.
He had planned on spending the inauguration weekend with his family in Palm Beach, Florida.
