Neighbors of Ivanka Trump are speaking up against the new comers following President Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 presidential election.
Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner rented a house in the capital shortly after the inauguration of Trump as the commander-in-chief.
A huge security presence caused by the couple, requiring three vans for a trip to the playground, as well as taking up the parking space in the already crowded street and leaving trash bags unattended, are among the neighbors’ complaints.
“It has been a three-ring circus from the day that they’ve moved in,” Marietta Robinson, who lives across the street in the Kalorama neighborhood, was cited as saying in an AP report.
Since the couple and their three children moved to the $5.5-million home, public parking has been overrun and the trash pickup schedule has been ignored by their staff.

The neighborhood, 2 miles north of the White House, is used to high profile residents including former President Barack Obama, who recently left there, as well as Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who recently moved in, just like Trump’s secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, but “no one has raised the ire of the community,” like Ivanka’s family, according to the agency.
“Maybe some of the upset has to do with a little. I couldn’t say for sure, but I know that people don’t seem to be upset about Tillerson’s situation. It’s much less intrusive,” said Ellen Goldstein, an elected neighborhood commissioner, who also wrote a letter to Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser and other city officials on Saturday.
“There are more of them than I have ever seen,” Robinson wrote of the Secret Service forces tasked with protecting the family. “Frequently several of them are milling outside of the house at all hours having conversations and staring meanly at anyone in view.”
In December 2016, a company with ties to a Chilean billionaire bought the house and rented it out to the family of the president’s daughter.
