Ivanka Trump goes makeup-free for go-kart racing in Miami

Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner had a need for speed on Sunday as they enjoyed a day of go-kart racing with their 10-year-old daughter Arabella.  

The family was spotted with their security guard and a few other unidentified children when they visited the go-kart track at Dezerland Park in Miami ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.  

Ivanka and Jared’s younger sons Joseph, eight, and Theodore, five, didn’t appear to be with them, but the boys may not have met the park’s height requirement for racing.

The former first daughter, 40, was makeup-free and ready to hit the track in her camel cardigan, white T-shirt, and black skinny jeans. She topped off her sporty look with a pair of white Gola sneakers featuring metallic stripes. 

Her blonde hair was pulled back in a messy bun, and she jazzed up her casual look with a delicate gold necklace and a matching bracelet. 

She also had on the red string bracelet she often wears on her left wrist. Although she hasn’t spoken about the purpose of the string, it does bear a resemblance to the type of red string that Kabbalah practitioners wear to ward off the ‘evil eye.’

Jared, 40, was dressed for the Miami heat in a white polo shirt, shorts, and a baseball cap that he later swapped for a helmet. At some point when they got inside, Ivanka took off her cardigan sweater and was wearing just her T-shirt.   

She and her husband were seen holding their helmets and covering their mouths with what looked like gray neck scarves.

Later, when they were leaving, Ivanka walked out with her daughter Arabella, who had on a black T-shirt, shorts, and colorful sneakers paired with gray and neon green socks. 

Arabella led the way as her mother followed close behind with her cellphone and a royal blue face mask in her hand. 

The family’s security guard had stopped and waited for the other boy before they walked to the car together with another man who also appeared to be a bodyguard. 

The security team has likely been employed personally by Ivanka and Jared, who lost their Secret Service coverage in July, after having been granted an extra six months of protection as part of a deal secured by former President Donald Trump before he left the White House. 

As part of an order put into place by her father, Ivanka and her siblings Don Jr., 43, Eric, 37, and Tiffany, 28, continued to benefit from official Secret Service protection for half a year after their father’s presidency came to an end — a service that was revealed last month to have cost the taxpayer an additional $1.7 million.

Secret Service agents typically protect presidents and their spouses for life, and any of their children also receive security until the age of 16.

However, Trump’s order gave a further six months of protection to his adult children and their spouses, as well as his Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, his chief of staff Mark Meadows, and his national security adviser Robert O’Brien.

Now that the Secret Service coverage has expired, Ivanka and Jared are responsible for finding and paying for their own security, a cost that they appear to have happily footed for the majority of their outings in recent months.  

Their latest family outing comes just a few weeks after Ivanka stepped out with her oldest son Joseph to make a donation to a local Jewish food bank in Miami. 

Ivanka wore a budget-friendly $90 belted shirt dress by the German fast-fashion brand Lichi and glamorous tortoiseshell cat-eye sunglasses for her visit to the Jewish Community Services Kosher Food Bank.

The former first daughter drove her own car — a black SUV — to the location and spent an hour meeting the team and delivering food to the pantry. 

The mother and son were joined by their bearded security guard, the same one who has been spotted with them on numerous public outings the past few months. He kept a close watch while they made their donation two weeks before Thanksgiving. 

The JCS Kosher Food Bank is the only food bank in Miami-Dade County that offers kosher foods for those who observe Jewish dietary laws, according to its website. It provides food to more than 380 families nearly 100 Holocaust survivors. 

The Trumps typically spend the holidays at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, but it’s unclear if Ivanka will be there with her family. 

Ivanka converted to Judaism to marry her husband Jared, who is a Modern Orthodox Jew. They are raising their three children in the same faith.

All of the kids are currently enrolled in a local Jewish school in Miami that is located just a short distance from their home in the luxury oceanfront building Arte Surfside.

The property is one of the most expensive complexes in the neighborhood, with an average rental price of nearly $47,000 per month. Its penthouse sold for $33 million to an unnamed private equity executive from New York in January of this year — the same month that Ivanka and her family moved into the building.

The Kushner family is said to be using the large, unfurnished unit as a temporary home while they build a property on a two-acre plot they purchased on Indian Creek Island — also known as the ‘Billionaire Bunker’ — for $31.8 million late last year. 

They also scooped up an additional $24 million mansion just a few blocks away, which they are reported to have bought in April, according to the real estate website The Real Deal.

The couple’s alleged new property splurge features six bedrooms, eight and a half bathrooms, and was once owned by Spanish singer Julio Iglesias.

The 8,510-square-foot French neo-classical residence sits on 1.26 acres and is equipped with 26-feet-high domed ceilings, a grand double staircase, open entertaining areas, a large family and screening room, a wood-paneled office, a large gym, and a huge master bedroom with two full bathrooms.

It also boasts manicured gardens, reflecting pools, a resort-style swimming pool, and a large dock, although aerial images of the mansion suggest that it will require some extensive maintenance before it is ready to live in after having fallen into disrepair while on the market.

Until it is fixed up, Ivanka and Jared will likely remain in their Arte Surfside condo that is located just two blocks away from the collapsed Champlain Towers South Condo, which crumbled in a devastating accident in June, leaving nearly 100 people dead.

Since moving to Miami, Ivanka and Jared have kept out of the public eye and have only been seen out and about with their children on a handful of occasions.

This is a marked change from their lives in Washington, D.C. when they were regularly photographed on family outings in their upscale neighborhood.
