A source close to President Trump told CNN that the commander-in-chief was frustrated with his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner’s decision to go on a vacation in the heat of the debate over ObamaCare repeal.

“[Trump] is upset that his son-in-law and senior adviser was not around during this crucial week,” the source said, according to a CNN report.

Republicans abandoned their effort to repeal ObamaCare Friday, when Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) agreed to pull the measure as it became clear they didn’t have the votes.

The decision is a huge setback for Trump, Ryan and the GOP, which has promised for years to repeal ObamaCare.

The GOP bill that was debated on the floor Friday seemed doomed to failure. The Hill’s Whip List said 36 Republicans would vote no, with many more possibly voting against the measure. The GOP could only afford 22 defections. 

Kushner is one of Trump’s top advisers. While Ivanka has not been given specific titles she is also seen as having the president’s ear and is expected to move into a White House office.
