Ivanka Trump sightings at the 2018 Winter Olympics

Ivanka Trump, on what’s been billed as a mission of celebration rather than political gamesmanship, arrived at the Alpensia Ski Jumping Centre just as the Men’s Big Air finals were beginning. And instantly, rows of cameras which had been trained on the top of the mountain pivoted to find Trump in the audience. It wasn’t exactly difficult to locate her; she was wearing a red full-body snowsuit and a USA tocque.
