Karlie Kloss, who rarely publicly discusses her connection to the Trump family, said Wednesday that she has tried to persuade her brother and sister-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, to accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.
As pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C. amid the meeting to ratify the Electoral College presidential election votes, the 28-year-old model spoke out about the unrest on social media.
"Accepting the results of a legitimate democratic election is patriotic. Refusing to do so and inciting violence is anti-American," she tweeted. In response, one Twitter user replied to Kloss' message, calling on her to "tell your sister in law and brother law," in a since-deleted tweet. In a follow-up message, Kloss replied, "I've tried."
Karlie Kloss — who is currently expecting her first child — is married to Joshua Kushner, Jared Kushner's younger brother. Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, both 39, are senior White House aides. Ivanka Trump is also, of course, the daughter of President Donald Trump.
