The Lincoln Project has moved its billboards featuring Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner to the president’s Mar-a-Lago property in Palm Beach, Fla., by boat ahead of Election Day, the group’s co-founder announced on Twitter.
“@jaredkushner and @IvankaTrump demanded we take the billboards down. They threatened to sue @ProjectLincoln for ‘enormous’ sums,” Ron Steslow said on Twitter on Friday.
“In honor of their demands, here is the boat we hired, on its way to Mar-A-Lago. And our digital billboard truck circling Trump Tower in NYC,” he added.
The tweet includes a photo of a boat that has a digital billboard featuring the couple as well as a truck that has a digital billboard featuring Kushner in front of Trump Tower.
The billboards are the latest development in the back-and-forth between the two White House advisers and the Republican anti-Trump group. Lawyers for the couple threatened to sue over the billboards, which were first put up in Times Square in Manhattan.
One of the digital billboards at the center of the dispute depicts the president’s daughter smiling while standing next to figures showing the number of Americans and New Yorkers who have died from COVID-19.
The other billboard shows Kushner, also smiling, next to the quote “[New Yorkers] are going to suffer and that’s their problem.” The quote was attributed to Kushner from a Vanity Fair article published last month.
