Jared and Ivanka threaten lawsuit over Times Square billboards

Ivanka Trump and Husband Jared Kushner Threaten to Sue Owners of Times Square Ads

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are threatening to sue over pair of big, side-by-side, pro-Joe Biden marketing campaign billboards in Instances Sq. that blast their response to the coronavirus disaster.

The legal team representing the Lincoln Project wrote a strongly-worded letter to the couple's lawyer reminding that Ivanka and Kushner were "public officials" and Americans had the right to criticize to them freely. He threatened to sue "for what will doubtless be enormous compensatory and punitive damages" if the Lincoln Project does not comply.

While Ivanka Trump was seen to point out the number of deaths in the United States and NY due to the coronavirus, "New Yorkers will suffer, and this is their problem", wrote Jared Kushner's photo in the section.

Sanderson similarly dissects the billboard featuring Ivanka Trump, noting that she had posted the original image herself, holding up a can of Goya Black Beans, "in violation of federal ethics rules....infamously endors [ing] a commercial product", and that the PAC had replaced the can of beans with the statistics listing 33,336 New Yorkers and 221,247 Americans who had died from Covid-19.

"Of course, Mr. Kushner never made any such statement, Ms. Trump never made any such gesture, and the Lincoln Project's representations that they did are an outrageous and shameful libel", Mr. Kasowitz wrote.


The letter, which is well worth a read in its entirety, ends with a bang, saying that "if Mr. Kushner and Ms. Trump are genuinely concerned about salvaging their reputations, they would do well to stop suppressing truthful criticism and instead turn their attention to the COVID-19 crisis that is still unfolding under their inept watch".

The second billboard next to Ms. Trump shows her husband, Kushner, an investor, real estate developer, and senior advisor to President Trump.

The comment attributed to Kushner is contained in a September 17 article in Vanity Fair.

"It further went on to say that "The billboards will stay up" and that Ivanka and Kushner can sue them 'if they must". Kushner told VF that Cuomo didn't "pound the phones hard enough" for protective equipment, before adding: "His people are going to suffer and that's their problem". Kushner allegedly said, "His people are going to suffer, and that's their problem".

"We plan on showing them the same level of respect", it said.
