Billboards featuring Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner have been moved from New York’s Times Square to US Presidnet Donald Trump’s Mar-a-lago property in Palm Beach, Florida.

The billboards have been set up by The Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump Republican PAC, as the Election Day nears.

“.@jaredkushner and @IvankaTrump  demanded we take the billboards down. They threatened to sue  @ProjectLincoln for 'enormous' sums,” Lincoln Project co-founder Ron Steslow said on Twitter. “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.”

The US president’s daughter is seen in the billboards smiling while standing next to figures showing the number of Americans and New Yorkers who have died from Covid-19 and his son-in-law is next to the quote “'[New Yorkers] are going to suffer and that’s their problem.”

“I am writing concerning the false, malicious and defamatory ads that the Lincoln Project is displaying on billboards in Times Square,” wrote Marc Kasowitz, an attorney for Trump and Kushner. “If these billboards are not immediately removed, we will sue you for what will doubtless be enormous compensatory and punitive damages.”

The Republican president regularly threatens anyone he finds dangerous in the United States.

“Please peddle your scare tactics elsewhere. The Lincoln Project will not be intimidated by such empty bluster,” said Matthew Sanderson, a lawyer for the the Lincoln Project. “Your clients are no longer mere Upper East Side socialites, able to sue at the slightest offense to their personal sensitivities… Mr. Kushner and Ms. Trump are public officials. They have been public officials since President Trump, in a gross act of nepotism, awarded Mr. Kushner and Ms. Trump senior White House positions in 2017.”
