EXPRESS – 01/08/2020: It’s not smart to make fun of the President of the United States. Yet people somehow have the liberty to make jokes on Donald Trump’s account. What’s even more surprising is that the father-in-law of his daughter Ivanka Trump was the one to do it. He jokingly said that there’s no way Donald Trump gets elected for a term at the Oval office.
Donald Trump wasn’t favored to win when he ran for office for the first time. Back in 2015, when he first announced his candidature, many doubted him. At the beginning of his campaign, his daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner weren’t present as much. Later they started to be more prominent on his rallies and his plane and at meetings that were concerning the campaign.
While they were all together, Charles Kushner, the father of Ivanka’s husband, often joked that chances of Trump winning are minimal.
Charles often suggested that even if Trump did win, he would not be his Vice President. This was stated in Vicky Ward’s book, Kushner Inc. Apparently, Charlie had an arranged deal with Qatari Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, who is a former Qatar Prime Minister. Al Thani believed that if Trump won, their agreement would be labeled as corruption. Charles Kusher had business interests that relied on Trump losing the elections.
So, it would be good for him if Trump lost. But, despite his personal interests, he supported Donald throughout his campaign. Kushner family even donated $100,000 to Trump’s cause. Charlie is no stranger to politics. He was known for giving money to other politicians over the years. Interestingly he was not always a Republican.
In the past, Charles Kushner donated money to Democrat Party candidates Chuck Schumer, and believe it or not to Hillary Clinton.
