Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner had a date night out while visiting Rochester, Minnesota, amid the news that the former president Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago house had been searched by the FBI on Monday. While her dad was busy breaking the news about the search warrant connected to the confidential document inquiry, it nearly appeared as though they were carefree.
Ivanka appeared at ease and joyful as she and Kushner left the restaurant wearing jeans, a black tank top, and a jacket with a blue-and-white print. (See the photos HERE.) He kept it casual with khakis and a blue t-shirt while carrying a sweater for the chilly night.
According to TMZ, the couple had dinner at Bleu Duck Kitchen, where they enjoyed a glass of wine (perhaps celebrating his upcoming memoir?) and seemed to be in good moods. The other diners left them alone, but a security guard kept a close eye on them.
That’s a stark contrast to the night Donald Trump was having. FBI agents were searching the 45th President’s Florida home while he was in New York City. “These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” his statement reads.
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.” He compared his situation to Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal, noting “Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.”
As per Yahoo, it’s a little more complicated than the former president is making it seem, but there apparently was an issue with Donald Trump taking official documents out of the White House after his term ended.
It even gets stranger than that — according to Maggie Haberman’s book, Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America, the toilets at the residence didn’t always flush because they were reportedly clogged with papers — documents that the National Archives has been trying to get their hands on.
Was he also flushing sensitive information down the drain? The FBI is attempting to provide an explanation for that, but in the meantime, Ivanka and Kushner appeared carefree on a night when Donald Trump was anxious about what was happening in his beloved state of Florida.
