Ivanka Trump’s Brother-in-Law Won’t Vote for Donald Trump
Ivanka Trump’s brother-in-law won’t be voting for the GOP presidential candidate in November.
His brother, Josh Kushner, did not want to be interviewed for the article, but through a spokesman said that he “loved his brother and did not want to say anything that might embarrass him.”
The spokesman also said that Josh Kushner was a “lifelong democrat and will not be voting for Donald Trump in November.”
Over the past year Jared Kushner has become a key player in Trump’s campaign, advising Trump on key matters.
He helped prepare his father-in-law for an appearance before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in March and helped broker a truce with Fox News’s Megyn Kelly, who Trump was in a feud with earlier this year.
Jared Kushner was also involved in the vetting of potential running mates, planning for his father-in-law’s transition to the White House, fundraising, and the development of major policies.
Insiders described Jared Kushner as a mild-mannered and, while inexperienced, a valuable presence with helpful connections in the media world and across the Jewish community.
He took over his family’s New Jersey-based real estate firm at the age of 23 after his father, Charles Kushner, went to prison for tax evasion, illegal campaign contributions, and witness intimidation. The younger Kushner later became the publisher of the New York Observer, a Manhattan-based newspaper read largely for its high society and real estate coverage.
Jared Kushner expanded the family business into New York City and has purchased nearly $7 billion in property in less than a decade. He married into the Trump family in 2009 at a wedding held at one of the celebrity real estate magnate’s golf clubs in New Jersey.
