The situation has existed since the couple moved into the mansion in 2017. Both have served as advisers to President Donald Trump since taking office.
‘Go with Obama’
The house is located in the chic Kalorama district. Emergency solutions were regularly used before renting the apartment in which the security personnel could relieve themselves.
In the beginning, this involved a mobile toilet in the middle of the sidewalk, but local residents successfully objected to this. The agents also regularly went to the bathroom of President Barack Obama, who had now retired, in whose garden there was a garage that the secret service had turned into a command post. Sometimes Vice President Mike Pence’s toilet was also used, but he turned out to live too far away.
The rental contract for the apartment expires in September. In four years it will amount of rent then have risen to 144,000 dollars, writes the Washington Post newspaper (converted almost 120,000 euros).
White House denies
The White House denies that the secret agents were not allowed to enter the home of Kushner and Trump and claims that the Secret Service itself initiated toilet visits elsewhere. But the Washington Post spoke to a person who says the security guards were actually kept out at the family’s request.
Many local residents were outraged when the Trump-Kushner couple moved to Kalorama. With their ‘noisy’ and ‘gaudy’ appearance, they would not fit well into the neighborhood.
