Jared Kushner is the son-in-law and an adviser for the President-elect Donald Trump. Prior to the election, Jared was rarely heard of, but now he is called the man who won Trump the White House.
Jared gradually rose to significance in this election. For the sake of Trump’s amateur campaign, he made peace with Chris Christie, who previously had some issues with Jared’s father. Besides, Jared also negotiated with tax and trade experts who were not originally willing to work for Trump.
Likewise, Jared carefully managed the campaign finances as well, keeping in mind the Trump’s cautionary statement – I don’t want people getting rich off the campaign. In the same way, Kushner helped Trump to reach each and every American via the use of media. Kushner’s Silicon Valley networks indeed played a huge role in that.
This campaign has undoubtedly strengthened the relationship between the two real estate developers. Donald Trump has been seen hugging Jared and thanking him on several occasions.
Kushner and Trump’s relation got a bit more strong due to Jared’s father gradual inclination towards Trump campaign. Charles Kushner, an all-time donor for Democrats changed his ideologies this time. Perhaps, he too believes in Trump’s agenda – like the other 50 million Americans – of making America great again. Moreover, Charles even donated $100, 000 just for MAGA PAC keeping aside all the other donations and facilitating.
Even during the time when the world was against Trump for his racist rhetoric, Jared defended him writing in his newspaper that ‘Donald Trump is not anti-Semitic and he’s not a racist’. In an interview with Forbes, he said, “People really saw hope in his message. They wanted the things that wouldn’t have been obvious to a lot of people I would meet in the New York media world, the Upper East Side or at Robin Hood [Foundation] dinners.”
Jared has done more than Trump’s sons have done for him in this campaign. With no doubt, Trump and Kushner have developed a strong bond. Hence, the rumors rise: Will Kushner be the next Chief of Staff?
