Report: Trump is Furious With Jared Kushner’s Inept COVID-19 Response
Donald Trump expects a lot out of his daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner. Kusher has been given such responsibilities as strengthening relationships with the Saudi Arabian crowd and creating peace in the Middle East.
When the coronavirus became an epidemic in the United States, the President asked his son-in-law to help lead the White House response. According to a new report in Vanity Fair, Trump is “pissed” about the job Kushner has done on the project thus far.
Gabriel Sherman writes, “As Trump processes the stakes facing the country—and his presidency—he’s also lashing out at advisers, whom he blames for the White House’s inept and flat-footed response. Sources say a principal target of his anger is Jared Kushner.”
The story continues, “Trump was also said to be angry that Kushner oversold Google’s coronavirus testing website when in fact the tech giant had a fledgling effort. Trump got slammed in the press for promoting the phantom Google product.”
Sherman also quotes a White House source as saying, “I have never heard so many people inside the White House openly discussed how pissed Trump is at Jared.”
