Ivanka Trump took a private tour of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum last week, Bloomberg reported on Friday, citing an unnamed source familiar with her visit.

She was accompanied by her mother- and father-in-law, Jared Kushner's parents, Charles and Seryl, the report said.

Two White House aides reportedly said that Ivanka Trump’s father, U.S. President Donald Trump, has expressed an interest in a similar private tour.

The Trump administration’s statement issued in January for International Holocaust Remembrance Day omitted a specific mention of Jews, which raised hackles in the Jewish community in the United States and around the world.

In addition, Trump had initially declined to condemn the anti-Semitism behind the targeting of Jewish institutions, including four Jewish cemeteries and more than 100 JCCs and Jewish organizations in recent weeks.

After initially demurring to comment directly when asked about the spate of recent anti-Semitic incidents, Trump eventually called the threats to the community centers “horrible” and “painful,” and Vice President Mike Pence paid a visit to a Jewish cemetery vandalized near St. Louis.
