Karlie Kloss Finally Opened Up About Her Connection To Trump

    Karlie married Josh Kushner — the brother of Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser — last year.

    You might know that Karlie Kloss married her long-term boyfriend Josh Kushner in a woodland New York ceremony in October last year.

    Then, two weeks ago, they celebrated their nuptials for a second time with a party for family and friends in Wyoming.

    However, one thing you might not have realised is that Karlie's new brother-in-law is Jared Kushner — Ivanka Trump's husband and president Donald Trump's senior adviser.

    This of course means that Karlie is now connected to the Trump family by marriage. In fact, Ivanka even posted a photo from Karlie and Josh's wedding on Instagram alongside a caption congratulating them.

    However, Karlie has always aligned herself with the Democratic Party. She supported and voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, and she has publicly denounced many of Trump's policies since his election.

    She attended the Women's March the day after Trump's inauguration, spoke out against gun violence, attended the March for Our Lives, and has urged followers to vote for candidates who support gun violence prevention in the midterm elections. And, most recently, Karlie spoke out against the widespread abortion bans in the US, attended the emergency response rally in her home state of Missouri, and also shared information with fans on how to pledge support for reproductive health care organisations such as Planned Parenthood.

    So it's safe to say that people have been curious for a while now as to how Karlie manages to reconcile her family ties with her political values.

    Well, in a new interview with British Vogue, Karlie has opened up on the subject for the first time, revealing it's been "hard" to deal with the Trump association, especially under the glare of the public eye.

    However, Karlie went on to suggest that despite the family connection, she'll continue to speak about causes that she feels passionately about.
