Ivanka Trump Takes 5-Year-Old Daughter Arabella For A Special Field Trip To The Supreme Court
First Daughter Ivanka Trump brought her 5-year-old girl Arabella on a special kind of field trip Wednesday. The 35-year-old mom took her daughter to the Supreme Court and witnessed how the America's Justice Department performed its duties.
Chief Justice John Roberts, who sworn in President Donald Trump in January, welcomed Ivanka and Arabella. They witnessed the judge announcing three decisions. One of the cases involved the overturning of a death sentence on an African-American in Texas, according to the New York Post.
CNN reported it's not uncommon for Supreme Court justices to have visitors who observe the judicial branch. Ivanka and Arabella were apparently seated in the VIP section and across them was the press section.
Ivanka later wrote on Instagram the visit was a teaching moment for her young daughter. "I'm grateful for the opportunity to teach her about the judicial system in our country firsthand," the mom wrote and posted a photo of the two of them on the steps of the Supreme Court.
Arabella and I visited the Supreme Court this morning and attended a hearing. I'm grateful for the opportunity to teach her about the judicial system in our country firsthand. #SCOTUS #SupremeCourt #ImportantLessons #MotherDaughter

Arabella, Ivanka's eldest child with husband Jared Kushner, is currently in kindergarten. She attends the Jewish Primary Day School in Washington as her parents are orthodox Jews.
Daily Mail reported the mom and daughter might have taken advantage of the school break in Washington this week. Hence, the 5-year-old was able to join Ivanka on a mid-week in the middle of the day.
Last weekend, Arabella was seen with younger brother Joseph as they joined their grandfather, the president, on his trip to South Carolina for a meeting with Boeing businessmen. Arabella and her parents do not live in the White House but they are frequent visitors. The Trump-Kushners moved from New York to the capital last January as Ivanka's husband serves the president as his senior adviser.
