Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner DID flout coronavirus rules to travel to their second home after telling US ‘stay home’ – The Sun

IVANKA Trump and Jared Kushner did flout coronavirus isolation rules to travel to their second home in New Jersey to celebrate passover.

The President's daughter, senior White House adviser Kushner and their three children traveled to The Garden State during the COVID-19 pandemic, the White House confirmed.

The White House confirmed her travel in a statement, obtained by NBC.

It read: "Ivanka – with her immediate family – celebrated Passover at a closed down facility considered to be a family home.

"Her travel was no different than had she been traveling to/from work and the location was less populated than the surrounding area near her home in D.C.

"While at Bedminster she has been practicing social distancing and working remotely. Her travel was not commercial.

"She chose to spend a holiday in private with her family."

As religious gatherings were cancelled worldwide, Ivanka and her husband Jared brought their kids to the Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in New Jersey, two sources told the NY Times.

It appears Ivanka's family broke Washington D.C.'s stay-at-home order, which was put into place on April 1 and allowed for only essential activities or travel.

The two sources, familiar with Ivanka's travel plans, said she continued to work from Bedminster and spend time with her family after the holiday.

Kushner, on the other hand, returned back to the White House to work, the sources said.

This comes just a few days after Ivanka showed off adorable coronavirus masks and stressed the importance of social distancing in the fight against COVID-19.

She appeared to be taking the Center for Disease Control’s face-mask recommendation seriously and encouraged others to follow suit.

“As we enter the new week, let’s keep ourselves and each other safe by following CDC’s recommendation to wear a face covering when out in public to help protect the most vulnerable from #COVID19,” she wrote.

“You can find instructions online to make your own cloth mask. (I made Arabella’s and she made mine — and yes, she stitched USA on it!!)

“Remember, while face coverings/ masks are helpful, there’s no substitute for social distancing! Let’s protect and take care of one another!”

Ivanka's trip to New Jersey makes it seem she's not following her own advice.

On March 29, Ivanka posted an Instagram video about the "enormous challenge" of remaining socially distanced beyond Easter.

She said: "Those lucky enough to be in a position to stay at home, please, please do so."

"Each and every one of us plays a role in slowing the spread.

"And social distancing saves lives; it has saved lives, and it will continue to save lives.

"In these toughest of times America always shows her strength and her resilience, and that will happen again," she said.

There are now more than 643,508 confirmed coronavirus cases across the United States.

At least 28,506 people have died from the virus across America.

Meanwhile, explosive reports claimed the deadly virus was "developed in a Wuhan lab as China hope to prove it's greater than the US at battling deadly diseases,"

President Trump acknowledged the shocking claims during his daily press briefing Wednesday after insiders said the communist country created COVID-19 to demonstrate its disease-fighting dominance.
