Former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and former adviser Jared Kushner has reportedly said he will no longer be involved in politics and plans to launch an investment firm, according to a new Reuters report.
“Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, is also looking to open an office in Israel to pursue regional investments to connect Israel’s economy and India, North Africa and the Gulf, said two people briefed on the plan, who spoke on condition of anonymity,” according to the report.
Kushner served as a key adviser in the White House during Trump’s term. He provided important work in the efforts to negotiate the Abraham Accords, an agreement that has normalized relations between Israel and several Middle Eastern nations.
Kushner and his family continue to remain close to the president. They currently reside next door to Trump and his family in Bedminster, New Jersey, according to the report.
Trump has long hinted at another run for the White House in 2024. Kushner’s approach appears to take a different direction, moving forward outside of politics in the days ahead.
Some have speculated the moves may involve differing views of the events at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. However, Kushner has made no public comments regarding the matter.
Instead, Kushner is reportedly also at work on a book regarding his time in the White House that will be published next year. “His book will be the definitive, thorough recounting of the administration — and the truth about what happened behind closed doors,” his publisher Broadside announced.
Kushner young age and unique experiences will continue to offer him many opportunities in the days ahead. It appears his energy will focus on business in the days ahead, however, instead of a return to politics.
