Jared Kushner Named Senior Adviser to Trump — Do You Love This?

trumpMany liberals were up in arms about this. But let’s just remind them of some history. JFK (a democrat) assigned his brother a cabinet position. Bill Clinton (a democrat) wanted Hillary to take over roles in health reform. We think Trump’s okay here.

President-elect Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who emerged as a key figure in the Republican’s successful 2016 campaign, will be named senior adviser to the president, the campaign announced Monday.

“Jared has been a tremendous asset and trusted advisor throughout the campaign and transition and I am proud to have him in a key leadership role in my administration,” Trump said in a statement announcing the appointment.

Kushner was an influential behind the scenes confidant to his father-in-law during last year’s election and has continued to be a leading voice in Trump’s transition to the White House. But a number of legal questions potentially complicate the billionaire real estate developer’s role in the incoming administration.

Kushner will resign from his company, divest “substantial assets,” and recuse himself from matters that would impact his financial interests, Gorelick said. His remaining assets will be purchased by a trust.
