The Post reported that taxpayers have spent a whopping $144,000 since September 2017around $3,000 a monthon a basement studio apartment near the Kushner residence with a bathroom for agents to use.</p><p>White House spokesman Judd Deere denied that the Kushners prohibited Secret Service agents from using the bathrooms in their home, stating, "It was only after a decision by the [Secret Service] was made that their detail sought other accommodations."</p><p>Multiple sources told the Post, however, that "the bathrooms inside the Trump/Kushner<strong> </strong>home were declared off-limits to the people protecting them<strong> </strong>from the beginning."</p><p data-el="text">"It's the first time I ever heard of a Secret Service detail having to go to these extremes to find a bathroom," one law enforcement official told the Post. </p><p data-el="text"><a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2021/01/14/secret-service-bathroom-ivanka-trump-jared-kushner/">The Post reported</a> that agents occasionally went to a garage on the Obama's nearby Kalaroma property that the Obamas' detail had set up as a "command post" for their own use. But that solution turned out to be short-lived after an agent on the Kushners' detail "left an unpleasant mess in the Obama bathroom at some point before the fall of 2017," resulting in the Kushner/Trump agents being barred from coming back. </p><p data-el="text">At some times, they also drove about a mile away to a Secret Service command post at the Naval Observatory, where the Pences live, to use the bathrooms there. At others, they relied on the goodwill of the Kushners' neighbors and had to use porta-potties out on the street. </p><p data-el="text">"They sort of came in with the attitude, like, 'We are royalty,'" the Kushners' former neighbor Dianne Bruce told the Post. "When they put the porta-potty right outside on the sidewalk we weren't allowed to walk on, that was when people in the neighborhood said, 'That's really not acceptable.'"</p><p><a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-kushner-secret-service-agents-used-obamas-bathrooms-wapo-2021-1#comments">Join the conversation about this story »</a></p> <p>NOW WATCH: <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/ocean-floor-much-deeper-humans-understand-animation-2017-3">This incredible animation shows how deep the ocean really is</a></p> Click here to read full news..
