In just over two months Donald Trump will be ousted from the White House, whether he wants to leave or not.

The pressure is mounting for him to decide his next move but it seems even his family can’t agree on the best way forward.

The President’s three eldest children, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump are reportedly giving their father conflicting advice about what he should do next in the wake of his election loss.

Sources have told CNN that his sons are adamant Mr Trump should keep fighting the result, while his daughter is urging him to take a more level approach in a bid to save his reputation.

Donald Jr and Eric have been extremely vocal about backing Mr Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud, with the president’s latest unsubstantiated claims revolving around more than a million votes being deleted and thousands of Trump votes being changed to Biden votes.

Both men have been posting relentlessly on Twitter in a bid to bolster their father’s claims.

Ivanka has been considerably more hesitant about backing her father’s claims, only issuing one tweet saying that every legally cast vote should be counted and every illegal vote should not.

Sources told CNN this is because Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, who are both White House senior advisers, don’t believe Mr Trump’s lawsuits will change the outcome of the election.

“Ivanka Trump has offered a more calibrated message to her father, asking him whether it was worth damaging his legacy and potentially his businesses to continue his refusal to concede,” CNN reported.

“She is privately realistic about the President’s loss, a source told CNN, but she also knows that her entire future – now more than ever – is tied to her father’s, and must be handled delicately.”

Reports emerged earlier this week that Melania Trump had privately urged her husband to concede the election after Joe Biden was declared the winner.

A “source familiar with the conversations” reportedly told CNN that the First Lady had privately shared her opinion and instructed her husband to accept the situation.

“She has offered it, as she often does,” the source said, according to CNN.

Publicly, however, it’s a different story, with Ms Trump taking to Twitter to echo her husband’s concerns regarding “illegal” votes.

“The American people deserve fair elections. Every legal – not illegal – vote should be counted. We must protect our democracy with complete transparency,” she posted on Twitter.

However, like Ivanka, she has refrained from making any more statements on social media alluding to Mr Trump’s voter fraud claims.

CNN also previously reported that Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, had also urged his father-in-law to back down.

However, Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller has denied those claims, saying they were “not true”.

“Jared has advised @realDonaldTrump to pursue all available legal remedies to ensure accuracy,” he wrote in a tweet.
