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

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.”

In the momentous winter of 1860-61, the United States literally split in two during the haze between the failed presidency of Pennsylvania’s James Buchanan and the first-ever Republican administration of Abraham Lincoln that terrified the slave-addled South.Now consider this scenario: A seemingly unending crisis has ripped millions of jobs from the U.S. economy, with a growing homelessne...

Published

"If the basics aren't followed, there is only one way this pandemic is going to go. It's going to get worse and worse and worse."

The head of the World Health Organization warned Monday that a "return to the 'old normal'" was not in "the foreseeable future" and urged global leaders to act cooperatively to control the coronavirus pandemic.
