Former senior adviser to former President Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, who is also number 45’s son-in-law, stated on Thursday that he is currently thrilled to be back in the private sector, noting that if Trump should run again in 2024, he’ll “support him as a family member should.”
Kushner sat down for an interview on “Spicer & Co.” to chat about his brand-new book, “Breaking History: A White House Memoir.” The host of the program, Sean Spicer, once served as White House Press Secretary and communications director during the Trump administration.
“President Trump right now is very troubled for what he’s seeing happening in the country,” Kushner went on to say during the chat with Spicer. “I write in the book not only what it was like being under investigation for the Russia collusion narrative and for being attacked and falsely impeached and besmirched by the media, but also how President Trump got so many things done. Inflation was low, gas prices were low, the wealth gap in the country was shrinking, the trade deals that everyone said wouldn’t get done got done, bringing jobs back for the middle class and for our manufacturing base here in America.
“He watches what’s happening now: Gas prices are up; inflation is up; the economy is not doing as well as it was before; we have a war in Europe and China is being very provocative in Taiwan. So at the end of the day, I know that it bothers him to see,” he went on to say, according to Newsmax. “I think he fixed a lot of these problems, and it’s something that, that could be fixed again.
When Spicer asked Kushner if he would ever return to government work if his father-in-law should run and win a second term in the White House, Kushner answered by stating, “I’ll support him as a family member should.”
“But right now, I’m loving the opportunity to spend time with my family and being in the private sector,” he revealed.
At one point during the interview, Kushner discussed the interactions he had with other politicians in the nation’s capital, stating that he learned early on that there are some folks who will do some “fairly illogical things in order to get to Trump.”
“You had four years of just total derangement by people in the media,” he remarked. “You had serious news organizations, at least what I perceived, like The New York Times, CNN, MSNBC; and they were just hyperventilating about all these things that turned out to be totally, totally false.”
He then added, “I felt it was very important to write this book so that people can understand what was actually happening and more importantly, how it was happening in an environment of maximum pressure.”
It’s hard to blame Kushner for being hesitant to get back in the trenches for another four years. There’s a reason why so many of us normal folk have no desire to run for office. Politics, particularly in D.C., has a tendency to either corrupt a person, or drain them dry of hope, optimism, and faith in humanity. Being a public servant, especially one actually interested in helping people and preserving liberty, is an extraordinarily difficult task that is not for the faint of heart.
