Although Donald Trump left the Vatican this morning for the NATO summit in Brussels, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner stayed behind for a brief tour of Rome. As the couple was leaving a private visit of the Pantheon, they were greeted by a less-than-enthusiastic crowd.
As the couple exited the temple, throngs of spectators can be heard booing them as they got into their SUV. The crowd continued to boo even as the motorcade drove away.
The couple will spend the evening in Rome and head back to the United States tomorrow.
Ivanka and Kushner were with the President as he made numerous gaffes during his first international trip. Aside from being publicly denied – twice – by his wife, Melania, Trump also infamously claimed that he had “just gotten back from the Middle East” upon arriving in Israel. Following public ridicule, the President most likely knows by this point that Israel is indeed located in the Middle East.

Judging by the crowd’s reaction to Trump’s daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka and Jared have been wholly swept up in the anti-Trump fervor that has engulfed the world. As his principal enablers, they are also complicit in his nefarious activities and, more importantly, will go down with Trump when his treason is inevitably exposed.
