Trump Considering Kushner for Chief of Staff

Not great news for the Trump Revolution.

Kushner will add all sorts of moderates, globalists, and Neocons to the staff and won’t fully understand the need to energize the base that elected President Trump in the first place. 

What’s more, he hasn’t exactly shown a deft touch to keeping himself clean when it comes to federal regulations, and possibly even federal laws. Might not be the right guy for an impeachment struggle.

According to the Huffington Post:

Having run through his first choices for his chief of staff vacancy without any luck, President Donald Trump is considering his own son-in-law for the job.

Jared Kushner, the husband of Trump’s daughter Ivanka and already an official White House adviser, met with Trump Wednesday about the job, a top Republican close to the White House told HuffPost. He and two others close to Trump or the White House who confirmed Kushner’s interest in the position did so on condition of anonymity to discuss the president’s staffing considerations freely.

Kushner has been pushing his own candidacy with Trump, citing his work on a criminal justice reform package and a claimed ability to work with Democrats, one person said. “I don’t know why he thinks that, when the Democrats are mainly going to be coming after Trump,” the source said.

The White House did not respond to HuffPost’s queries about Kushner’s prospects for the job.

Trump told reporters Thursday that he is down to five finalists. “We are interviewing people now for chief of staff,” he said at a photo opportunity with newly elected governors who were visiting the White House.

  1. There he goes again – flipping the story, creating alternative “news”.
    The political class should pay attention to how he does it.

    1. ot: while I’m here.
      SenFlake, AZ gave his whiny goodbye speech today. He and his supporters (all 10 of them) claim he didn’t run for reelection because of the “political climate” that he didn’t like.
      For the record: he didn’t run for reelection because the last poll his people took in Arizona showed he had 13% approval by the voters and he would not have a snowball’s chance in …Phoenix…to win his seat.

  2. Agree. Kusher is not the right guy for the job.

    They are also talking about ex Gov. Chris Christie of NJ. I hope not. He and Trump might hit it off but I think there would be friction between Christie and others in the WH. I know one thing. You do not hang up on the President’s wife.

  3. I’m a supporter of Trump because of what he is NOT. I.e. a free trade globalist who allows other countries like China to benefit while hurting the U.S. Someone who is FINALLY tackling illegal immigration. A President who is not afraid to tell the press to go piss in a hurricane and doesn’t cozy up to them because he knows they’re all liberals and hate conservatives/Republicans.

    If he starts becoming another McCain/Romney/Jeb! Republican he will piss off his base and they will stay home in 2020. The same old focus-grouped-to-within-an-inch-of-their-lives / Republicans won’t cut it any more.
