Trump Attends Ivanka and Jared Kushner's Wedding Anniversary Dinner at Camp David, Says He Will Pay for the Event

White House insiders Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were celebrating their 10-year wedding anniversary at Camp David. The couple kicked off the event at the presidential retreat with a dinner Friday evening.

In a tweet Saturday, President Donald Trump confirmed his attendance at the gathering for his daughter and son-in-law, while noting that he would pick up the costs of the event.

"Had a beautiful dinner last night at Camp David in celebration of the 10th Wedding Anniversary of Ivanka and Jared. Attended by a small number of family and friends, it could not have been nicer," the President tweeted Saturday. "Camp David is a special place. Cost of the event will be totally paid for by me!"

On Friday, a White House official told CNN this weekend's "expenses at Camp David are covered by the family," and that "Jared and Ivanka will be paying out of pocket."

Earlier this month, the president faced backlash over news that he intended to host the 2020 Group of Seven meeting at his 643-room golf resort in Doral, Florida.

"The administration's announcement that President Trump's Doral Miami resort will be the site of the next G7 summit is among the most brazen examples yet of the president's corruption," said Representative Jerrold Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, according to The New York Times.

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney quickly responded to criticism that Trump was personally profiting from the decision.

"I think the president has pretty much made it very clear since he's got here that he doesn't profit from being here," Mulvaney said. "He has no interest in profit from being here; that's one of the reasons that he's not taken a salary since he's been here, he's given that salary to charity, will not be profiting here."

Last week, Trump announced that he would be pulling his Miami resort from consideration as a possible venue for the G7 summit next June due to "both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility." He went on to suggest Camp David as a viable location for the political meeting.

Mulvaney, however, was less than thrilled with the idea.

"I don't want to butcher the numbers, but it was millions of dollars cheaper by doing it at Doral than it was at another facility," he said in a White House press briefing on October 17. "And that was roughly 50 percent savings.

"I mean, who was here for the last time it was at Camp David?" he said later in the briefing. "Was that the perfect place? In fact, I understand the folks who participated in it hated it and thought it was a miserable place to have the G7. It was way too small. It was way too remote. My understanding is this media didn't like it because you had to drive an hour on a bus to get there either way."
