Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, have removed their children from an elite $35,000 per-year school, reportedly after other parents complained they were flouting COVID-19 rules at election events.

The family moved to Washington when Donald Trump was elected as President of the United States, with Ivanka and Jared enrolling their three children, Arabella, Joseph and Theodore, in the upper class Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School.

Last month, there was an outbreak of COVID-19 at the White House, with Donald, Melania and Barron Trump being diagnosed with the coronavirus.

Just weeks later, it’s reported the Kushners were taken out of their school and moved to Melvin J. Berman Hebrew Academy in Maryland.

According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, other parents at the school piped up, after Ivanka and Jared were seen at ‘superspreader’ events during the election rally, leading the parents to worry about their children being in danger of catching the virus.

According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, one parent reached ‘breaking point’ when 11 White House guests and employees tested positive for COVID-19, after a ceremony was held to nominate Amy Coney Barrett for the U.S. Supreme Court.

While Ivanka and Jared were reportedly absent from the event, Ivanka was seen days later at a debate between Trump and Biden in Cleveland, reportedly not wearing a mask.

A White House official refused to comment on the situation, calling it ‘idle gossip,’ but it’s believed another reason the children may have been moved from the school is that Milton Jewish Day School offers more intimate one-on-one learning experiences.

The news comes after it was revealed that Ivanka Trump may have her own eyes on the President of the United States job.

Donald Trump and his sons Eric and Donald Trump Jr, have been taking to Twitter to furiously tweet about ‘illegal votes’ and calling for the count to stop.

Meanwhile, 39-year-old Ivanka Trump, who has been by her father’s side for the duration of his presidency, as White House advisor, hasn’t Tweeted about the election since Friday, with some sources claiming she’s quietly asking President Trump to concede the election.

While the idea of Donald Trump Jr. running for president in 2024 has been touted online, it seems there’s another member of the family who is hot on his heels.

“Ivanka has her own agenda. She's had her eyes on the desk behind the Oval Office since day one and she's not about to burn any bridges by mouthing off like Don Jr. who keeps lashing out on Twitter,” an insider told the Daily Mail.

“Everything she puts out is calculated and well thought out because she's always looking at the big picture.”
