Passenger booted from JetBlue flight after berating Ivanka Trump

A passenger was escorted from a JetBlue flight and rebooked on a different one after berating First Daughter to be Ivanka Trump, TMZ reports.

Trump was flying coach with a number of relatives when a fellow passenger recognized her and started yelling.

"Your father is ruining the country," TMZ quoted a bystander as saying.

Ivanka ignored the passenger, who was removed from the flight. JetBlue later released this statement: 

"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."
