President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who also serves as a senior adviser, has just spoken out publicly for the first time.
Until now, very few people have even heard his voice, with him preferring instead to have statements released by staff of his. Now, we know what Kushner sounds like. And, social media is going wild.
Kushner gave his first remarks while greeting tech CEOs to the White House on Monday ahead of Trump’s visit with them.
‘Today we’ve assembled a very impressive group of leaders from the private sector and are putting them to work here today to work on some of the country’s biggest challenges that will make a very meaningful difference to a lot of its citizens.’
It wasn’t so much his words that sparked such a buzz, it was how he said them – and what he sounded like. He basically came off like a “little boy going through puberty,” remarked Rand Duren on Twitter. Everyone who heard his speech basically agreed with this. Poor, Kushner.
Remember – Trump put Kushner in charge of brokering the Middle East peace deal, even though he doesn’t have any experience in the matter. Kushner has a lot of influence in the White House simply because he’s married to Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump. Despite this, Kushner has yet to speak out publicly until now. Well, we guess there’s a first time for everything. It might just be his last, however.
All fun aside – the Russia investigation surrounding Jared Kushner and his involvement in the expanding Russia investigation are no laughing matter.
Kushner is currently assembling several prominent lawyers to represent him after it was announced the special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Kushner’s finances and business dealings in relation to the probe.
Kushner’s current lawyer Jamie Gorelick even advised him to seek other legal advice due to the seriousness of the matter.
“After the appointment of our former partner Robert Mueller as special counsel, we advised Mr. Kushner to obtain the independent advice of a lawyer with appropriate experience as to whether he should continue with us as his counsel,” Gorelick said in a statement Sunday, according to the report.
