Jared Kushner ‘increasingly marginalised within Trump White House’

At a senior staff meeting early in President Donald Trump’s tenure, Reince Priebus, then White House chief of staff, posed a simple question to Jared Kushner: What would his newly created Office of American Innovation do?

Kushner brushed him off, according to people privy to the exchange. Given that he and his top lieutenants were paid little or nothing, Kushner asked, “What do you care?” He emphasized his point with an expletive.

“OK,” Priebus replied. “You do whatever you want.”

    From the article – “…according to people privy to the exchange.” and “According to three advisers to the president,…”

    No names. I’m tired of reading statements from people with no names. But I agree that the Kushners need to go. As others have said, nobody voted for Ivanka. Or her husband either. JMO
