What is Jared Kushner's book about? Trump's son-in-law's memoir could spill the beans on their alleged feud
After speculations arose surrounding Jared Kushner leaving politics, it has now been reported that the former senior adviser and son-in-law of former President Donald Trump is penning a book on his experience. The memoir will focus specifically surrounding his time in the White House.
News of this comes in the wake of the 45th President of the United States being reportedly furious with Kushner, as sources had tipped him that Kushner was quitting politics. Could this book entail the alleged feud brewing between the former president and his former close aide?
Kushner's upcoming book
According to sources, Kushner's book will focus on the deals he had made to normalize relations between Israel and several Arabian states, according to a report. The deals, labeled the Abraham Accords, help secure agreements between Israel and the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco, shortly ahead of Trump leaving office. The book by Kushner will also reportedly deal with prison reform, trade deals, Trump's impeachment and the Trump administration's response to the pandemic.
Among the other issues it will touch, the US relationship with China, the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections, the Mexican border crisis and the nationwide Black Lives Matter protest will also be discussed. Kushner is “not looking to settle scores but rather to provide historical context and help readers understand what it was like to work in the Trump White House,” sources told Reuters.
They added: "It will be an interesting perspective from someone who had a wide-ranging portfolio, was in the room for many of the most tense and consequential moments but kept a fairly low public profile, staying behind the scenes and granting limited media access.”
Since Trump left the White House, Kushner and his wife and former First Daughter Ivanka Trump have moved to Miami, Florida. News of him reportedly stepping away from advising the ex-president came less than a week ago, along with rumors claiming it was in response to the ex-president's anger over losing the 2020 election.
Speculation surrounding Kushner's alleged feud with Trump was heightened after Trump convened with former campaign manager Bill Stepien, adviser Jason Miller, former White House social media director Dan Scavino, Trump's son Donald Trump Jr and another former campaign manager Brad Parscale at his Mar-a-Lago residence to discuss his 2024 bid for office.
While most of Trump's former aides were present, the name significantly missing from the meeting was Kushner. As we had reported previously, this happened in the wake of sources telling CNN anonymously that "right now, he's (Kushner) just checked out of politics."
Another told the outlet that he is currently enjoying "some much needed time with his family." A third source who worked inside the Trump White House with Kushner said, "That's about as 180 a turn as he could ever make. This was a guy who for four years did everything on behalf of President Trump. He lived that job."
Will Kushner address the feud?
Kushner's alleged waning interest in reinstating Trump back to power and his absence at the aforementioned meeting were hints enough that Trump was not happy with his son-in-law. "It's not like Trump could fire his son-in-law, or give him a nickname and attack him on Twitter," said the person who worked inside the Trump White House. Whether these recent developments will impact Kushner's tell-all book to come, is yet to be seen.
