Karlie Kloss says she won't be voting for Donald Trump in 2020, despite the Kushner family connection

Karlie Kloss is making her political beliefs clear — if they weren’t already.

On Project Runway earlier this month, a contestant awkwardly made a comment about the model being married into the Kushner family — her husband, Joshua Kushner, is the brother of Trump adviser Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump's husband. So she addressed that awkward exchange going viral — as well as where she stands politically on Thursday’s Watch What Happens Live.

Host Andy Cohen asked if the 27-year-old was “on the same page politically with the family” and she replied, “Andy, I’m sure I’m not the only person in this country who does not necessarily agree with their family on politics.”

Fellow guest Martha Stewart praised her “good answer,” but Kloss didn’t stop there. She went on to add, for anyone still confused, “I voted as a Democrat in 2016 and I plan to do the same in 2020.”

She went on to talk about being “very passionate” about different issues, including women’s reproductive health. “I’m very involved with Planned Parenthood,” added Kloss, who urged people to donate to the organization to keep her home state Missouri's only abortion clinic open.

As she’s said in the past, Kloss made clear that it’s been a tough road marrying into the Kushner family, as there is a political divide with Ivanka and Jared supporting Trump in the White House.

“I met my man in 2012,” said Kloss, who married Joshua in 2018. “It was 2012 — it was a different world — and my man and I have been through a lot together. And I’m so proud that he’s my partner. It’s not been easy, but it’s worth it. And I would make that same decision a million times again.”

As for the Project Runway brouhaha — contestant Tyler Neasloney’s joked about Kloss wearing his design to “dinner with the Kushners” and he was eliminated soon after — Kloss quipped, “I was honored to be one of the first memes of the decade.”

Though she added, “Honestly, the real tragedy of this whole thing is that no one is talking about how terrible [Neasloney’s] dress was. That’s why he went home. I would not wear that dress to any dinner.”

Neasloney later spoke out about his comment, saying he felt “misunderstood.” He’s now selling shirts with his quip on it.
