President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, threatened legal action against the Lincoln Project over New York City billboards that depict the pair as showing "indifference" toward the toll of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a letter shared by the anti-Trump Republican group. The couple's lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, called the ads "false, malicious and defamatory" in a cease-and-desist letter the Lincoln Project posted on Twitter on Friday, October 23.

“If these billboard ads are not immediately removed, we will sue you for what will doubtless be enormous compensatory and punitive damages,” Marc Kasowitz said in his letter, which the Lincoln Project posted on Twitter.

An hour after sharing the letter, the Lincoln Project responded that the "billboards will stay up" and called the White House advisers "entitled, out-of-touch bullies".

Jared Kushner's political career began when Donald Trump started to seriously consider running for office. When Trump's campaign began in full swing, Jared was one of its most involved managers. He was especially involved in Trump's digital presence. When Trump won the election, Kushner was granted a high-level security clearance, and he continued to play a major role in the administration. Eventually, he was given the title of Senior Advisor to the President. Kushner also owns a tech startup, Cadre. He and his brother, Joshua Kushner, co-founded the company in 2014 and it was worth $25 million at a minimum in 2018, compared to a minimum of $5 million in 2017, AP reported. Kushner is now selling his stake in Cadre, The New York Times reported on March 5, 2020.
