As President Trump struggles to mount a cohesive re-election strategy, some White House insiders have revealed that Trump is furious with son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner.
Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, had a decidedly liberal bent prior to joining the administration, and some are speculating that the consequences of Trump’s decision to listen to some of his advice are becoming apparent. The Spectator reported on Wednesday:
‘Trump has a Jared problem,’ is how one conservative activist who works with the White House on immigration puts it. ‘Jared is a total f—-up. Everything he touches turns to lead.’
Others groan about ‘four more years of Jared’ should the President be re-elected in November.
Kushner reportedly holds a disproportionate amount of power in the Trump administration, a fact that has White House officials fuming.
Kushner has no previous experience in government or politics and his most relevant experience is that from his time as a real estate investor. Despite Kushner’s clear lack of expertise, Donald Trump has still placed him in charge of hot-button policy issues such as Middle East diplomacy, police reform, the immigration reform package, criminal justice reform, PPE procurement during COVID-19, and construction of the border wall.
Former National Security Adviser John Bolton described Kushner as “the second-most powerful man” in the Trump administration. “He’s been involved in a range of things that I don’t think is equaled by anybody else in the president’s roles of advisers or cabinet members,” Bolton said during a Thursday interview.
Kushner’s critics have claimed that not only does he not have any experience in many of these critical fields, he’s also shockingly ignorant, with his business acumen being his only saving grace.
Others in the administration claim that Kushner has more sinister motives. Anonymous administration sources claimed that “The depths and lengths Jared is going to stab Trump in the back [are] quite profound. Trump’s been burned by Jared so many times.”
Neither Trump nor Kushner have responded to rumors of unrest within the White House.
