Meghan McCain Says Ivanka Trump Was 'Breaking Her Own Rules' by Leaving D.C. During Stay-at-Home

McCain has sharply, repeatedly criticized President Trump, often over Trump’s attacks against her late father, Sen. John McCain. But she has also spoken out about Ivanka and Kushner’s roles in the federal government over what she said was their lack of qualifications.

The New York Times was first to report that Ivanka eft D.C. for the Trump National Golf Club Bedminster.

The family traveled to Bedminster to celebrate the first night of the religious holiday earlier this month, which was April 8, according to two sources who spoke with the Times.

That day, Ivanka tweeted about “a Passover without precedent,” a seeming acknowledgment that many families had chosen to gather remotely — via video call, for example — in order to celebrate while still distancing.

Ivanka, who has remained in Bedminster, asked her staff to work from home and avoid coming into the White House if necessary, according to the Times.

The White House on Thursday confirmed Ivanka and her family were at Bedminster for Passover but stressed that she was still social distancing while “working remotely.”

It was unclear who else she may have come into contact with in New Jersey. (She has a Secret Service detail as well.) The Times reported that Ivanka has told others the Trump club is shut down, which makes it safer than her home in D.C.

White House aides compared it to a “family home.”
