The New York Times changed a sub-headline on Wednesday that described Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump as “well-to-do refugees” looking for a new home.
The original headline read, “The end of President Trump’s time in office leaves his daughter Ivanka Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as well-t0-do refugees — but they appear to have plans in New Jersey.”
Following complaints, however, the Times removed the term “well-to-do refugees” and replaced it with “looking for a new home.”

Some social media users had complained about the newspaper using the word “refugee” to refer to Kushner and Trump.
