Book claims Trump ordered John Kelly to fire Ivanka and Jared for him: ‘Get them back to New York!’

Published

A new book claims that President Donald Trump directed former chief of staff John Kelly to fire the president’s own daughter and son-in-law shortly after he replaced Reince Priebus in 2017.

The New York Times reports that a new book called “Kushner, Inc., which was written by journalist Vicky Ward, claims that Trump wanted Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner out of the White House because they “didn’t know how to play the game” of politics and kept generating negative headlines for his administration.

“Get rid of my kids,” Trump reportedly told Kelly. “Get them back to New York!”

Kelly, however, responded that it would be difficult for him to force Jared and Ivanka to give up their positions in the White House without Trump’s explicitly telling them he wanted them out.

The pair have since outlasted Kelly and have remained in the White House months after he resigned last December. This has not stopped Trump from going back and forth about whether he wants the two of them in his administration, however, and the Times describes his desire to see them leave as having “come and gone in waves.”

Watch how the BBC reports on ‘the reality’ in the United States during COVID-19 crisis

Published

on

The British Broadcasting Corporation is reporting on the "frantic and on-the-edge" situation in an intensive care unit in New York City.

The BBC had footage from CBS News, which was allowed in the ICU.

"Though the administration says there's no shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), the reality is otherwise," the BBC noted.

A front-line worker wearing a garbage bag "wished" she had the same PPE as the reporter.

"It's very, very difficult, it's like something out of 'The Twilight Zone,'" she said.

"And I don't think any of us going through it will ever be the same," she added.
