First Daughter Ivanka Trump and her family have a new home in Washington D.C. But, at the rate they’re going, they won’t be in their posh Kalorama neighborhood too much longer. Ivanka’s neighbors want her gone!
Residents of the ritzy Washington D.C. community are furious about the Secret Service details assigned to the First Daughter and family.
The number one complaint? They take uo way too many of the block’s parking spaces.
The President’s daughter, Ivanka Trumo, recently moved with her husband, Jared Kushner, to the Kalorama community. They, along with their three children, haven’t received a warm welcome… initially.
But, that quickly changed. And, the Washington Post reports that it’s all because of the abundance of Secret Service SUVs on the block.
Neighbors were annoyed enough when two “NO PARKING” signs were installed in front of Ivanka Trump’s home. That’s TWO parking spots gone.
Then, on Monday, city workers installed two more “NO PARKING” signs on the block. But, this time, they were placed right beside of their next door neighbors’ home. And, those neighbors, the Friedmans, are furious!
Daily Caller reports:
For lawyer Rhonda Friedman, this apparently was the last straw.
“I started screaming,” Friedman told The Washington Post.
After numerous emails, Friedman finally persuaded the city to remove those signs from in front of her house.
Still, that hasn’t placated the block of Tracy NW. While Kalorama residents seem willing to put up with the Secret Service detail around former President Barack Obama, they are less willing to do so for Trump and Kushner.
“Are you kidding me?” asked Marti Robinson, yet another lawyer on the block. “This is the adult child of the president. Sometimes there are 10 cars out here.”
Neighbors are complaining about metal fences, loud Secret Service agents talking on the street, metal barricades.
Sometimes, to the residents’ horror, agents even change their shirts in public.
“We’re just a little story in a cosmic, bigger story, which is the whole Trump phenomenon and how they push their way around,” said Toby Moffett, a former Democratic representative from Connecticut. “You have people coming and going. You have three or four, sometimes five SUVs that are very big and that aren’t from the neighborhood.”
This isn’t the first time Trump and Kushner have caused an upset with their presence in the neighborhood. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier in March that the landlord of Trump and Kushner’s house is suing the U.S. government over mining leases, which could place Kushner in an awkward position, given that he works as a close adviser to the president.
