Jared Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump, traveled to the Trump golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, with their three children for the first night of Passover on April 8, according to The New York Times
In so doing, they ignored federal guidelines.
President Donald Trump’s much-vaunted coronavirus guidelines recommend against “discretionary travel.”
Kushner and Trump also seem to have ignored Washington, DC’s Mayor Muriel Bowser’s stay-at-home order, which was issued March 30 and ordered residents of DC, which include the couple, to stay at home unless they are performing “essential activities” such as “obtaining medical care” or are performing “essential governmental functions” or “allowable recreational activities” such as “walking, hiking, running, dog-walking…”
It’s hard to imagine that a family visit to a New Jersey golf club falls into these categories.
The DC stay-at-home order also says that “willfully” violating it is a misdemeanor subject to a fine not exceeding $5,000, or imprisonment for not more than three months, or both.
