However, some of the Winter Games’ biggest names will be skipping out on the visit in protest of President Trump.

Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn and figure skaters Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy are not planning to attend the visit. 

‘All US Olympians and Paralympians are invited to visit the White House and meet the President after the Games,’ Kenworthy tweeted Thursday.

‘Today is this year’s visit and USOC spokesperson says he’s never seen so many athletes turn down their invites. The resistance is real,’ he added. 

Jared Kushner was seen later on Thursday evening arriving home shortly before 8pm. Ivanka arrived home about an hour after her husband once the awards ceremony was over.
