The Daily Mail cited a source inside the White House, who anonymously told them:
"Ivanka is worried that her promising political career is in jeopardy and she's doing whatever she can to save her reputation."
"Ivanka is convinced that by attending Biden's inauguration she will come across as a good sport and will gain future supporters."
For once, President Trump—who was reportedly unhappy with Ivanka's decision—seemed to be in agreement with Twitter who questioned whether Ivanka was even invited.

In what capacity is Ivanka invited to Joe Biden's inauguration? Will she just be standing out on the mall? https://t.co/xOlYcdI6bv— Tim Miller (@Tim Miller) 1610405565.0

Whether or not Ivanka Trump will be able to attend Biden's inauguration is somewhat uncertain even if she—unlike her father—is willing.
In the past, members of Congress would be given hundreds of tickets each to ensure entire staffs could attend, but the pandemic has severely limited the number of people who will be able to see the event in person.
And security concerns after the Capitol riot are likely to limit the crowd further.

Despite Ivanka's efforts, the internet was not excited to see her try to reform her image after supporting her father during his worst moments in office.
