Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump flew off to the Idaho resort of Sun Valley on Wednesday, even as the administration was foundering amid new revelations about ties between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.
Trump and Kushner, who took their kids with them, will be meeting with high-powered media execs, who are in town for a summit held by Allen and Co., an investment firm with ties to the entertainment and news industries. The heads of Viacom, CBS and Verizon, among others, will be at the confab. Kushner and Trump are paying their own way for this trip.
The couple has a habit of living the high-life, even while clouds gather around the Trump administration. In March, with the Republicans’ first attempt at Obamacare repeal in crisis, the two jetted to Aspen, where they took to the slopes of the famous Colorado town. In the first days after the inauguration, after the president issued his “Muslim ban,” Ivanka Trump tweeted a photo on a Saturday night of she and her husband hitting the Washington, D.C. party scene.
