We know, we know, it’s so unlike him.
Earlier this month, some disturbing news came over the transom: Jared Kushner, late of shockingly not bringing peace to the Middle East, had joined the government’s efforts to respond to the coronavirus after doing his own “research” on the matter. This was a chilling turn of events for a number of reasons, the primary one being that, contrary to popular belief, Kushner is not an expert in public health, or even in how the government functions, the former of which may have informed his opinion, as late as mid-March, that the problem was “more about public psychology than a health reality.”
The other issue was the question of potential conflicts of interest, for which the president’s son-in-law has many. Whether it’s lobbying for tax breaks that would benefit his family fortune, meetings with top CEOs at the White House who later lent money to Kushner Companies, or the curious case of the Qatari bailout of 666 Fifth Avenue, virtually everything Kushner touches from his perch as a senior adviser to the president appears to have some connection to his personal net worth or that of his extended family. And, according to a new report from the Atlantic, COVID-19 is somehow no different.
Whatever happened to Ivanka Trump and all the Chinese trademarks that she got? Isn’t she making masks in her Chinese Factories by now and selling them for profit to the citizens of the United States?
Presidential adviser Ivanka Trump’s fashion brand won first trial approval for 16 new trademarks from the Chinese government in October. These approvals come about three months after Ivanka announced that her brand was shutting down, and mark the largest number of new Chinese trademarks she has received in a single month since President Donald Trump took office.
Her husband Jarad is making money and so his brother with respirators.
Trump can’t say this wasn’t his fault. He can’t say he inherited this problem from former administrations. There was no COVID-19 Before Trump.
