Who is Jared Kushner? He started out a simple rich boy of a New Jersey real estate developer Charles Kushner who was the son of immigrants. He was also one of the top Democratic party donors in the country. He also made large donations to institutions of higher learning the Harvard — incidentally where Jared went to college. He later attended NYU, which coincidentally came coupled with another large donation to the school.
His father was later sent to prison and Jared took over his empire. The Kushner company sold $1.8 billion in real estate before the housing collapse. He started dating Ivanka Trump, another child of real estate greatness. He also got close with Rupert Murdoch who had a story about his father killed. Over the next few years, his media and real estate ventures started floundering — but then his father in law decided to run for president.
Jared joined his campaign and became an integral part of many important decisions. He even would allegedly listen in on phone calls that Trump was making, but the recipients of the calls wouldn’t be made aware. Since Trump’s victory, Kushner’s previous business dealings started to conveniently flourish. He remains a senior advisor in the Trump White House.
Fast forward to early January of 2020 when President Trump authorized a drone strike that killed Iran’s top security and intelligence commander Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani.
It’s unclear how we can, in Jared’s words, quote “imagine a new reality for the middle east” while the U.S. is bombing it.
