An explosive new report suggests more definitively than ever that Donald Trump never intended to win the presidency — and flailed behind the scenes during his first days in office.


According to an excerpt from Michael Wolff's headline-making new book about the Trump presidency published in the Daily Intelligencer, the president's adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner could not name the president's priorities during the first six weeks of his administration.

"Just give me the three things the president wants to focus on,” Katie Walsh, a Republican operative and short-lived White House deputy chief of staff, asked Kushner. “What are the three priorities of this White House?”

Kushner, the report notes, was "wholly without an answer."

“Yes,” he reportedly told the deputy chief of staff. “We should probably have that conversation.”
