Jared Kushner spoke at the dedication of a new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem as Israeli forces killed Palestinians protesting the controversial move -- and social media users roasted the president's son-in-law.
President Donald Trump was represented at Monday's dedication ceremony by his eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, who serve as senior White House advisers despite their inability to obtain permanent clearance to view the most highly classified materials.
Twitter users asked why Kushner and Ivanka Trump were present at the event.
