JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

In an odd move for senior White House advisers, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump left President Donald Trump in a gridlocked and shut-down Washington to make it to Mar-a-Lago by Christmas Day, according to a Daily Mail report. 

The couple has been photographed strolling the streets of Palm Beach in casual attire, despite administration protestations last week that Kushner was a critical part of shutdown negotiations.

The couple joins other members of the clan Barron and Donald Jr., leaving the family patriarch bemoaning his isolation at the White House.
