“Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private,” he continued.

Meanwhile, Ivanka didn’t pay much attention to Goldstein and tried to get her kids’ attention from the incident by helping them with their crayons.

The Daily Mail said Secret Service officers were with Ivanka Trump and her family during the flight but they chose not to intervene and let the flight crew handle the situation.

When the plane landed in San Francisco, Ivanka and her family were whisked away byt the Secret Service and transferred to a private jet to Hawaii.

In a statement, JetBlue Airways defended its decision to remove Dan Golstein from the flight as we was causing conflict in the aircraft.

“The decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly. If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight. Our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight.”
