REVEALED: Rex Tillerson unloaded on Jared Kushner for ‘endangering the US’ with his incompetent foreign policy meddling

Published

on

A new book set for release on March 19th reveals that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump clashed with multiple senior White House officials, who were concerned the couple mixed their government work and personal interests and lacked proper expertise for the work they were trying to do, reports The Guardian.

In her new book, journalist Vicky Ward describes tense confrontations between the couple, who serve as senior advisors to the President, and high level Trump aides.

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly blamed Kushner for Trump’s endorsement of a blockade of Qatar by Saudi Arabia, and told him that “his interference had endangered the US.”

Gary Cohn, Trump’s former economic advisor, confronted Kushner about dining with executives from a Chinese financial corporation considering investing in the Kushner family’s Manhattan tower.

“You’ve got to be crazy,” Cohn reportedly scolded Kushner.

Beyond obvious conflicts of interest, the couple was derided by White House insiders for meddling too much and lacking the skills for good governance. According to the Guardian, which obtained a copy of the book, Ward claims that White House staffers made fun of Kushner for trying to be “secretary of everything.” Ivanka Trump’s team was labeled Habi – “home of all bad ideas.”

Trump’s former chief of staff, John Kelly, said the couple was “just playing government.”

Kushner has endeavored to resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict, with no clear results. He also tried to repair the damage to Saudi Arabia’s reputation after the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Ivanka Trump has taken on women’s issues as a cause, but it’s not clear what concrete policy has resulted.

Nevertheless, the couple is said to have big ambitions, with Ivanka allegedly envisioning a Trump presidential dynasty. “She thinks she’s going to be president of the United States,” Cohn told Ward, according to The Guardian.

President Donald Trump has figured out how to have taxpayers pay to renovate his Trump National Doral Miami golf course, according to an analysis by MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.

"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office

Published

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

Published

on

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
