The continuous jabs that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have thrown at each other while campaigning have reportedly strained a once blossoming friendship between their children.

Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump’s friendship has suffered as their parents battle it out for the White House in 2016, according to the New York Daily News.

The famous daughters were once so close that they reportedly sent text messages to each other quite frequently as well as exchanged baby gifts.

However, now that their parents are competing against each other, the two have been quite distant, a source told the Daily News reported.

‘Over time, they had developed a real relationship, a real friendship, and had a mutual respect for each other based on their upbringing, being in the spotlight, their parents, scandals, their history,’ the source explained to the Daily News.

‘And in the beginning (when Hillary and Trump announced they were throwing their hats in the ring) it was lighthearted. Everything was OK. Since then, it has gotten very strained.’

A separate source remarked that there is no ‘bad blood’ between Chelsea and Ivanka, but told the Daily News that their friendship is ‘definitely on hold’.

‘If anyone knew they had any hard feelings it would be such a circus, so they will act classy like they both are and pretend all is OK for the public,’ the second source told the Daily News.

While the two women have not tweeted at each other recently, The Donald fired off a tweet blasting his Democratic competitor Friday evening as Politico reported that he targeted her on Twitter 65 times in 2015.
