Another source familiar with the situation, however, insists it was Ivanka and Kushner's request not to let Secret Service agents in.
"The Kushners have a tremendous amount of respect for the servicemen and women on their detail and for the Secret Service as a whole".
A spokeswoman for the Secret Service would not comment.
The couple have refused to allow the Secret Service detail to use any of the 6.5 bathrooms in their Washington D.C. mansion, according to The Washington Post.
With less than a week to go for the inauguration of Joe Biden as the next President of the United States, and after months of denial of Biden's electoral victory from the sitting President, the White House has started to show signs that Donald Trump is preparing to leave.
'When discussions regarding protecting their home were initially had in 2017, Ivanka and Jared made clear that their home would always be open to the incredible men and women on their detail, ' Deere said.
'They sort of came in with the attitude, like, 'We are royalty, ' Kushner and Trump's former across-the-street neighbor Dianne Bruce said of the couple. "After resorting to a porta-potty, as well as bathrooms at the nearby home of former president Barack Obama and the not-so-nearby residence of Vice President Pence, the agents finally found a toilet to call their own", the report reads.
He claimed that their house was always open to them.
Two law enforcement officials told the Post that the facilities inside the family's house were designated from the outset as not to be used by the Secret Service agents. The lease of the 820-square-foot basement on Tracy Place NW is set to expire on September 26 this year by when the government would have paid $144,000 in rent.
That's when the Kushner-Trump detail started using a bathroom in the Obama family's nearby garage. "They have been very nice to our grandchildren".
