While President-elect Donald Trump met with outgoing President Barack Obama on Thursday, Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner was getting his introduction to White House life from chief of staff Denis McDonough. This was seen as a sign that Trump is eyeing Kushner to be his chief of staff.
Last night, on Fox News, Maria Bartiromo, anchor of Mornings with Maria on FOX Business Network, said that based on information she has received from sources, Kushner will indeed be the chief of staff in the Trump administration.
Kushner is marred to Trump’s oldest daughter Ivanka, who also played a pivotal role in the billionaire’s campaign.
The Daily Mail reports that Kushner and Ivanka also are preparing for their first TV interview since Donald Trump’s stunning election victory put them even more into the spotlight.
From Wikepedia: Jared Corey Kushner (born January 10, 1981) is principal owner of the real estate holding and development company Kushner Properties and the newspaper publishing company the New York Observer.
Kushner is the eldest son of Seryl (née Stadtmauer) and real estate developer Charles Kushner.
Kushner was raised in an Orthodox Jewish family in New Jersey. He graduated from the Frisch School, a private, coed yeshiva high school in Paramus, New Jersey, and from Harvard University in 2003 with an A.B. in sociology.
From 2007 to 2016, he spent at least $7 billion on New York real estate. Kushner purchased 666 Fifth Avenue in 2007 for $1.8 billion, the most expensive single property purchase in US history at the time. In May 2015, Kushner purchased a majority stake of the Times Square Building for $295 million.
