Former President Donald Trump has alienated his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner with his continued obsession over the 2020 election, CNN reported Wednesday.

CNN reported that Trump is prone to complain about the 2020 election and falsely claim it was "stolen" from him to anyone listening and that his "frustrations emerge in fits and starts - more likely when he is discussing his hopeful return to national politics."

While Ivanka and Kushner have been in Miami, not far from Trump's Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, they've been visiting Trump less and less frequently and have been conspicuously absent from big events at Mar-a-Lago, CNN said.

Kushner and Ivanka, once key advisors in Trump's inner circle, have taken a step back both over Trump's unrelenting lies about the 2020 election and the strained relationship between Trump and his son-in-law.

One person described Kushner to CNN as "kind of like a parent who sticks around less and less each morning while they're transitioning their kid to day care."

Trump reportedly blames Kushner in part for the failure of his 2020 campaign, was unimpressed with Kushner's policy work, and is worried that his son-in-law will take credit for the administration's policy achievements.

The Washington Post previously reported that Trump remains obsessed with his 2020 election loss and is paying close attention to ongoing ballot recount efforts in Maricopa County, Arizona. He's been following news out of Arizona religiously and pushing for similar ballot reviews in Georgia and Pennsylvania, per The Post.

In recent weeks, Trump has also latched onto a conspiracy theory that a nonexistent Supreme Court case brought by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell will result in the court overturning the results of the 2020 presidential election and reinstating him as president by August.

There is no constitutional mechanism for the 2020 election to be overturned or for Trump to be reinstated.

With former top advisors and confidantes like Ivanka and Kushner stepping back, right-wing media influencers like Lindell and the One America News anchor Christina Bobb, a promoter of the dubious Arizona recount, have filled that void and captured Trump's attention, CNN reported.
