Are Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner moving to Bedminster home? Reports say couple may not be welcome in New York
Reports have said after Trump’s presidency ends his daughter and son-in-law might not be welcomed warmly back into the New York social circle
Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner will reportedly shift to Bedminster, New Jersey, after Donald Trump’s presidency ends in January. Their news of shifting came amid rumors that the pair might not be welcomed warmly back into the New York social scene after January 20, 2021, when Joe Biden will take over the Washington office.
The Independent reported that Trump’s daughter and son-in-law are thinking of extending their Bedminster home and plans include more rooms, a “relocated helicopter”, four new pickleball courts, a spa and yoga complex, and five "cottages" of 5,000 square feet each. Reports also said the first daughter and her husband have yet not revealed where they will set their permanent base after losing their jobs as White House advisors. Before moving to the White House after Trump became the president, the two used to live in Manhattan with the rest of the Trump family. But it has been said this time things are different, they might not stay with them again.
Trump is likely to shift permanently to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Ivanka and Kushner also own a home at the property, but their chances of living there are almost null as the First Lady Melania Trump and the 39-year-old share a bitter relationship. Donny Deutsch, a Manhattan brand-management professional and frequent critic of POTUS, said, if the couple tried to return to New York they would “even have a harder time than Trump himself” to integrate themselves back into society. "[The president’s] despicable but larger than life. Those two are the hapless minions who went along,” Deutsch added.
But earlier in November, the daughter of billionaire Michael Bloomberg, Georgina Bloomberg, said she believed Ivanka and Kushner received unfair criticism from the public. New York society could accept them and forgive them easily. A former friend of the first daughter told Vanity Fair, “They’ll be welcomed back by people who know the Trumps are as close as they’ll get to power. But everyone with self-respect, a career, morals, respect for democracy, or who doesn’t want their friends to shame them both in private and public will steer clear.”
Meanwhile, another recent report stated that Ivanka and other close advisers of Trump do not want any association with his legal fight to turn the results of the November 3 presidential election around. The incumbent has challenged the outcome of the election, alleging voter fraud that helped Biden win. But his efforts have not shown any result yet. Ivanka and other close advisers to the 74-year-old are reportedly feeling convinced that it won’t give any result in their favor. The report also cited people who have spoken to Ivanka and Kushner. The sources said: “Even Jared and Ivanka think this is going nowhere.” Reports also said the pair told Trump to admit his defeat against the former vice president, but his sons, Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump, wanted him to continue the fight to challenge the election result. “Most hardcore Trump sources have psychologically bailed, and are just waiting out the storm,” a report in Axios stated.
