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.
