is Karlie Kloss Ivanka Trump's sister-in-law?

Ever since Trump was elected president, there have been massive shake-ups in his administration. And while past presidents have steered clear of nepotism, it seems like that’s not an issue for #45.

His daughter, Ivanka Trump, known for her now-defunct fashion line, serves as the Advisor to the President of the United States, despite having no political experience.

There have been rumors that Ivanka and her half-sister, “forgotten” Tiffany, aren’t that close, but Ivanka has another famous sister who isn’t related to her by blood: Karlie Kloss.

Is Karlie Kloss Ivanka Trump’s sister-in-law? Ivanka is married to Jared Kushner, the brother of Josh Kushner, who tied the knot with Kloss in October 2018. So, yes, Karlie Kloss and Ivanka Trump are sister-in-laws.

But while it seems like things would be in Ivanka’s favor here, gaining the sister she never had, according to Kloss, marrying into the Kushner family has been anything but easy.

In an interview with British Vogue for their August cover, Kloss, who became romantically involved with Josh Kushner long before a Trump presidency was even conceivable, said:

“It’s been hard. But I choose to focus on the values that I share with my husband, and those are the same liberal values that I was raised with and that have guided me throughout my life.

Looking back at my late teens and early twenties, I think I was fearful I would lose a job or lose my position if I said I didn’t want to do something. But I did not lose out on jobs. If anything, the more I exercised the power of my voice, the more I earned respect from my peers. And I earned more respect for myself. Only now do I have the confidence to stand tall — all 6ft 2in of me — and know the power of my voice.”

In 2017, Josh gave an interview to Forbes, expressing similar views to his now-wife: “It is no secret that liberal values have guided my life and that I have supported political leaders that share similar values. It’s important to be open-minded and learn from differing opinions.”

Despite their differing political viewpoints, it appears Ivanka and Jared have been incredibly supportive of the newlyweds. Back in July 2018, when Kloss announced her engagement to Kushner, she posted a photo on Instagram.

Ivanka commented on the post, saying, “So, so happy for you and Josh! I feel blessed to have you as a sister (!!!) Karlie and look forward to the decades of happy memories we will create together as a family.” 

She was also supportive of Kloss’ new role as the host of the latest season of Project Runway, posting a video praising her sister-in-law and cheering her on. 

In addition, when Josh and Karlie threw a three-day party in Wyoming celebrating their wedding, Ivanka and Jared came by the night before, though they were unable to attend the actual celebration.

The women also have something else in common besides being married to the Kushner brothers: business. Ivanka owned a fashion line for nearly a decade, and Karlie is an entrepreneur, including Kode with Klossy, a project that offers free classes to women interested in STEM, coding, and computer science concepts.

Though Karlie hasn’t publicly commented on her relationship with her sister-in-law, they're obviously able to coexist while holding differing values.
