The Secret Service professionals hired to protect the lives of the 39-year-old daughter of the President and her husband were instructed not to use the couple’s bathrooms, according to the Washington Post
“Instructed not to use any of the half-dozen bathrooms inside the couple’s house, the 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. 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,” the report reads.
“It came at a cost to U.S. taxpayers. Since September 2017, the federal government has been spending $3,000 a month — more than $100,000 to date — to rent a basement studio, with a bathroom, from a neighbor of the Kushner family.”
A White House spokesperson denied that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner restricted the agents from the 6.5 bathrooms n the home, and claimed that it was the Secret Service’s decision.
“That account is disputed by a law enforcement official familiar with the situation, who said the agents were kept out at the family’s request,” the report adds.
Melania Trump is making headlines for her apparent lack of involvement in helping with the White House transition.
