"I'm sure I'm not the only person in this country who does not necessarily agree with their family on politics," Kloss said. "I voted as a Democrat in 2016 and I plan to do the same in 2020."

Supermodel Karlie Kloss, the sister-in-law of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, says she will vote against President Donald Trump in 2020.

Kloss is married to Joshua Kushner, the younger brother of Jared Kushner who is also a senior adviser to President Trump.

Kloss disclosed her voting plans to Andy Cohen on an episode of "Watch What Happens Live" that aired Thursday night on Bravo.

"There is so much speculation about your home life and your family," Cohen told the "Project Runway" host. "Can I ask you about it?"

"Ask me anything. I'm an open book," Kloss said.

He responded: "Are you on the same page politically with the family?"

Kloss said, "Andy, I'm sure I'm not the only person in this country who does not necessarily agree with their family on politics. I voted as a Democrat in 2016 and I plan to do the same in 2020."

"Wow," Cohen said in response.

Kloss went on to say that she is very passionate about different issues, including women's reproductive health and that she is very involved with Planned Parenthood.

Bravo is owned by NBCUniversal, the parent company of NBC News.

A mention of the Kushners on the Jan. 2 episode of "Project Runway" became a viral moment.

After judge Brandon Maxwell told contestant, Tyler Neasloney, that he could not see Kloss wearing a dress the designer had created for Kloss to wear to an event in Paris, Neasloney quipped: “Not even to a dinner with the Kushners?”

Kloss fired back: “I was going to Paris, that was your challenge here. Keep it to the challenge.”

Neasloney later apologized to Kloss during the episode, telling her: "I want you to know that I’m not a jerk. I’m professional. What I said earlier had no hidden agenda, no meaning, no ... nothing like that."

When asked by Cohen on Thursday's episode of "Watch What Happens Live" about the exchange, Kloss said she was honored to be one of the first memes of the decade.

"But honestly, the real tragedy of this whole thing is that no one is talking about how terrible that dress was," she said, adding that the dress was why Neasloney was eliminated from the show.

This was not the first time Kloss has been public about her political preferences.

In a 2016 Instagram post, Kloss announced that she voted for Hillary Clinton.

"One of the greatest privileges we have as Americans is a voice. I’m proud to say I did my part, now it’s your turn. #ImWithHer," the caption read.

Her husband, a Democrat, also did not support Trump at the polls.
