Jared Kushner would turn down a new gig at the White House if his father-in-law Donald Trump is elected to a second term, he revealed during an interview Tuesday.

Kushner — who served as a top advisor to Trump when he was president — said during a sit-down at the Axios BFD conference in Miami that he instead wants to “focus” on his work at his investment firm.

Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump, runs the Miami-based investment and private equity firm Affinity Partners.

“I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity as a family to be out of the spotlight … and so we’ve both really enjoyed the opportunity to be down here in Florida with the kids,” Kushner told Axios’ Dan Primack at the conference.

If Trump, 77, wins a second term in November and offered his son-in-law a job in his administration, Kushner said he wouldn’t accept, Axios reported.

“I was very fortunate to play a role in the campaign and then join him in the administration,” he said.

But now Trump has more options within the political world to grab for his team as opposed to the “family campaign” he ran in 2016.

“I think he has a much better understanding of who was effective and all these different roles and I suspect he’ll have a very, very long list of very qualified people to choose from,” Kushner said at the conference.

Kushner, who is Jewish, also reportedly told people that he was “really out” after his father-in-law’s Nov. 22 dinner with anti-Semitic rapper Kanye West and white nationalist Nick Fuentes at Mar-a-Lago became public, New York Magazine reported in December, quoting a source.

The offer may not even be on the table even if Trump gets enough votes to return to the West Wing.

The leading Republican contender previously said he wouldn’t ask Kushner nor Ivanka to serve in his administration again because it’s “too painful for the family.”

Trump was asked by Fox News host Bret Baier in June if he would want Ivanka and Kushner by his side again if he were to win the 2024 presidential election, to which the former president responded, “No.” 

“I said, that’s enough for the family. You know why? It’s too painful for the family,” Trump said.

Ivanka has also squashed any rumors that she’d rejoin her father’s side in DC.

She announced in November 2022 that she would have no part in his third presidential bid.

“I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family. I do not plan to be involved in politics,” the former first daughter said in a statement.
