Former President Donald Trump isn’t so happy with son-in-law Jared Kushner these days. He blames Kushner for his election defeat. And Trump is also angry at his own Republican Party for using his image for fundraising.
All great duos end with a falling out. Sonny and Cher, Simon and Garfunkel, Martin and Lewis, even Cain and Abel. So are we to now add Trump and Kushner to the list too?
Jared Kushner was Trump’s wunderkind. All through the 2017 elections Donald Trump cited him as one of the great minds and successful people who he would bring into his administration. But now CNN has reported that Donald Trump blames Jared Kushner for his election loss. What is so surprising here is that to this day Trump insists that he did not really lose, but that the elections were somehow stolen from him. So is he now blaming Kushner for the steal?
Well one thing is certain: Jared Kushner is no longer part of Donald Trump’s inner circle. He is not one of the people currently advising Trump in his court in exile that the former president has set up at his Mar-a-Lago Florida estate.
Some of those close to Jared Kushner, however, say that his absence from the Court of Trump is by his own doing. They say that the former first son-in-law simply got burnt out after his four years working in the high pressure White House.
CNN quoted one such person saying, “Right now, he’s just checked out of politics.” Another person close to Jared Kushner said, “The drama of politics wore him down. Eventually, Trump wears everyone down.”
Meanwhile Donald Trump is threatening legal action against the Republican Party if it does not stop using his image for its fundraising activities. The former President actually sent a cease and desist order to the Republican National Committee, National Republican Congressional Committee and National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Apparently the former President is bothered by the fact that these institutions can use the funds raised for any individual member of the House and Senate. And these include Republicans who voted in favor of Donald Trump’s impeachment.
