The first daughter posted a picture of President Donald Trump walking with the three children she shares with her husband, Jared Kushner, across the White House grounds
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Ivanka Trump revealed what she was thankful for this year on Twitter and got slammed for it. The first daughter posted a picture of President Donald Trump walking with the three children - Arabella, Theodore and Joseph - she shares with her husband, Jared Kushner, across the White House grounds after having descended from Marine One. "Deeply thankful for our President and my father this holiday season!" she captioned the picture.

Soon enough, liberals took to the comment section to blast the tweet. "I’m thankful he’ll be gone in January," one wrote, while another said, "Is EVERYTHING a photo op for you guys. I mean, really..." A third quipped, "I'm also thankful that his term is nearly over." The next noted, "That makes one!" Someone else pointed out, "There's no way he knows those kids names." Another remarked, "Grandad can play with his grandkids for the first time in his life late January. He’ll have plenty of time." One person tweeted, "266k Americans dead? #COVID19" Another commented, "for literally what", and somebody else wrote, "If you ignore.....every other president ever, sure."

We previously reported that Ivanka and Jared will reportedly shift to Bedminster, New Jersey, after Trump’s presidency ends in January. The news of their shifting came amid rumors that the pair might not be welcomed warmly back into the New York social scene after January 20, following the inauguration of president-elect Joe Biden.
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 the 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.”
