Ivanka Trump was spotted enjoying an outing with her husband, Jared, their three children and her in-laws in Miami on Sunday amid chatter that a rift is still simmering between Kushner and former president Donald Trump after his election loss last year.
Images show the family boarding a small boat while holding their towels and other belongings.
Charles Kushner, who was pardoned by Trump in December after being convicted of tax crimes, witness tampering, and illegal campaign contributions, was seen talking with his son and a boat operator as the vessel left the dock.
Ivanka and Jared’s children, Arabella, Theodore and Joseph, were seen sitting with the former first daughter and Kushner’s mother, Seryl, at the front of the boat.
Ivanka wore a light blue cami over her bathing suit while Kushner opted for a long-sleeved shirt with matching shorts.

The family’s outing comes amid news of an apparent rift between Trump and Jared Kushner, who the former president is said to be angry with over his election loss.
Trump jetted to New York City on Sunday after spending the last six weeks holed up at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, since he snubbed President Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20.
His visit comes amid reports of escalating tensions between Trump and Kushner, who served as the White House Senior Adviser for the Trump administration.
Contradictory reports are circling from people close to the two men over who is to blame for the apparent rift but they appeared to actively avoid bumping into each other at the Trump National Doral golf course in Miami Wednesday.
Trump, 74, was spotted leaving the driving range to head to the 18-round course just minutes before Ivanka and Jared arrived to practice their swing, narrowly missing bumping into each other.
Jared, 40, was also absent from Trump’s team ahead of his appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference and the ex-president is telling his inner circle he blames Kushner for his failed second run at office, according to CNN.
However sources close to Kushner say he has ‘checked out of politics’ because he is ‘done’ with Trump’s false rhetoric of widespread election fraud.
Trump advisor Jason Miller has denied the reports of a rift and told DailyMail.com the two men met up at the club right before their separate golf outings and also had lunch together this past week.

‘We know the boss isn’t going to blame himself,’ a source said.
His son-in-law was also missing from a meeting late last week where Trump brought together his top advisers to plan his political future including the 2022 midterms.
A spokesman for Trump told DailyMail.com, Kushner spoke with the ex-president and his advisors every day in the run-up to CPAC.
Another source who worked with Jared in the Trump White House said his absence was unusual given he was one of Trump’s closest advisers during his time in the White House and was involved in almost all goings-ons in the Oval Office.
‘That’s about as 180 a turn as he could ever make,’ they said. ‘This was a guy who for four years did everything on behalf of President Trump. He lived that job.’
But several sources close to Kushner say it has been his choice to step away because he is ‘done’ with Trump’s rhetoric after he pushed false claims the election was ‘rigged’.
While Trump publicly refused to concede, Kushner was reportedly urging him behind closed doors to admit defeat. Trump ignored these pleas.
Then, on January 6, a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol in a riot that left five – including a Capitol officer – dead.
Trump was impeached by the House for inciting the insurrection but was acquitted by the Senate during his impeachment trial.
The events are said to have ‘wore down’ Kushner and he now wants no part in advising his father-in-law on his political goals.
‘The drama of politics wore him down. Eventually, Trump wears everyone down,’ one source said.
Another added: ‘Right now, he’s just checked out of politics.’
Other insiders have downplayed reports of a rift claiming Kushner is just enjoying ‘some much needed time with his family’ and a ‘break’ from politics.
