Jared & Ivanka Slammed for Making Secret Service Spend $3k a Month to Rent a Bathroom Instead of Letting Them Use Theirs

Outgoing President Donald Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, have been two of the most scrutinized members of the Trump administration since the President appointed them as senior advisors at the beginning of his term.

That isn't set to change with a new report from The Washington Post about the couple's treatment of the Secret Service detail protecting them.

According to the report by Peter Jamison, Carol D. Leonnig and Paul Schwartzman, the couple forbid Secret Service from using any of the six bathrooms in their ritzy Kalorama neighborhood home.

According to The Washington Post:

"[T]he Secret Service detail assigned to President Trump's daughter and son-in-law spent months searching for a reliable restroom to use on the job, according to neighbors and law enforcement officials."

At one point, the Secret Service had to resort to using bathrooms at the home of former President Barack Obama:

"After resorting to a porta-potty, as well as bathrooms at the nearby home of former president Barack Obama and the not-so-nearby residence of Vice President Pence, the agents finally found a toilet to call their own."

Eventually, the detail had to rent a $3 thousand a month basement studio from a neighbor, which they've used since September of 2017 at the cost of U.S. taxpayers—a total of over $100 thousand so far.

The White House said that it was the Secret Service's decision not to allow the detail inside, but a law enforcement official told the Post that the decision was at the request of Trump and Kushner.

With both Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner born into notoriously wealthy families, the report didn't do much to contradict their elite image.



People began comparing the couple to characters in The Help who refused to let Black domestic workers use bathrooms in their home.







The Secret Service declined to comment to The Washington Post about the matter.
