On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump spent over $100,000 of taxpayer funds to rent a basement that was used mainly as an on-the-job restroom by their security detail.
Before the couple rented the $3,000 basement, Secret Service agents, assigned as their detail, had to use bathrooms of various leaders including homes belonging to President Barack Obama, Mike Pence and others.
A former neighbor told The Washington Post that the couple had a lot of attitude. They put a porta-potty outside the sidewalk and when neighbors objected, and they rented an 820-sq.ft. basement on September 27, 2017. The agreement will expire on June 26, 2021. This means that the unit rent, paid with by taxpayer funds, would cost approximately $144,000.
The home belongs to Kay Kendall, Chairwoman of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. It was fully rented to former Connecticut congressman Anthony “Toby” Moffett Jr., till he suggested that the home be split into two units. He also asked for a reduced rental price.
Kushner and Trump are planning to leave Kalorama, DC as President Trump’s term will soon be ending. Sources say that they are in talks to close a $31.8 million real estate deal on a 1.8 acre, empty, waterfront plot, situated off the Miami coast. This plot is a part of “Billionaire Bunker” a snazzy, high security island enclave near Florida. The couple will have to get temporary lodging while their new home is built.
