Donald Trump Threw Jared Under the Bus According to New Book, Allegedly Said Kushner was More Loyal to Israel Than U.S.

Bob Woodward and Robert Costa’s new book entitled “Peril” has been stirring up all kinds of stories and controversy. New reports continue to roll out. Recently it was reported that General Mark Milley may have undermined President Trump according to the book.

This has led to many Republicans calling for Milley to resign. Now it appears that Trump’s relationship with his son-in-law, Ivanka’s husband Jared, was even more strained than once thought, at least according to the book. According to Business Insider, of Trump:

“‘You know,’ Trump joked in another meeting, mocking his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who was raised in a modern Orthodox Jewish family and was working on Middle East peace, ‘Jared’s more loyal to Israel than the United States,'” Woodward and Costa wrote.

The article continued, accusing former President Trump of using anti-semitic tropes with his accusations against Kusher. The story said that in 2019 Donald Trump told a Jewish American audience that Benjamin Netanyahu was “their prime minister”.

It’s hard to say how exactly Trump meant that statement, if it was a slip-up in speech, or if he actually meant it to be nefarious, or if it’s simply what he thought. Perhaps Trump will issue some sort of statement confirming or debunking this new report.

It’s disconcerting that both parties in the United States are constantly battling it out to see who is more pro or anti any country other than the United States. It’s easy to label someone anti-semitic or racist for the most minor of infractions according to the PC police these days.

In our assessment, Donald Trump was and is America First, but that being said, he usually was relatively pro-Israel, perhaps even more so than the left, and more so than some of his supporters would have liked. So we would be surprised if Trump was anything but pro-Israel, although he may have said this about Kushner, context would be everything.

During Trump’s presidency, Netanyahu was very fond of him, and only turned on him when it was being reported that Joe Biden won the 2020 election, by allegedly unfollowing him on Twitter. This was shortly before Trump was banned on that platform and others.

Former President Trump does not appear to have responded yet to this story in any official statement.
