Secret Recording of Jared Kushner Has Trump Questioning His Son-in-Law’s Role at WH

By

President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner was recorded making revelations to a closed-door meeting that might have the commander-in-chief questioning his decision to bring family on staff.

Kushner was speaking to congressional interns, one of whom was secretly recording the conversation, when he stated that Israel was in the right when in came to the recent tension over the Temple Mount.

In the portion of the recording dealing with the recent clashes over Israel’s installation and subsequent removal of metal detectors at the Jerusalem holy site, Kushner stated:

“I don’t know if everyone is familiar, but there were two people—two Israeli guards killed at the Temple Mount, and that’s the first time in many, many, many years that that happened, so Israelis … putting up metal detectors on the Temple Mount, which is not an irrational thing to do. So then what happens is they start inciting it. They say look, you know, this is a change to the status quo. The Temple Mount is a … occupation of Israel, and Israel was saying we don’t want anything to do with that, we just want to make sure people are safe. And that really incited a lot of tension in the streets.”

Kushner went on to seemingly contradict the president’s more confident outlook by saying that the Trump Administration was unlikely to succeed where past administration had failed in bringing genuine peace to the Middle East.

“What do we offer that’s unique? I don’t know. I’m sure everyone that’s tried this has been unique in some ways, but again we’re trying to follow very logically. We’re thinking about what the right end state is. And we’re trying to work with the parties very quietly to see if there’s a solution.

“There may be no solution, but it’s one of the problem sets that the president asked us to focus on. So we’re going to focus on it and try to come to the right conclusion in the near future.”

While the Trump Administration may indeed be unable to oversee a genuine peace, it appears that it won’t follow in the footsteps of past administrations by pushing a phony peace.
