Report: As Trump’s News-Fueled Rage Grows, Even Kushner Not Immune
On Tuesday , the New York Times revealed that President Trump’s news-fueled mood swings have made many staffers targets of rage , including Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. As far as bad news for the White House goes , the past week-or-so has been rather epic. The seemingly endless stream of reports involving the firing of FBI director James Comey and Trump’s apparent disclosure of sensitive information to Russian officials has , according to the New York Times , significantly impacted president’s temperament. On Tuesday , the Times revealed that the mood swings have made many staffers targets of rage , including Jared Kushner , Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser. The publication notes , “his [Trump's]…mood , according to two advisers who spoke on the condition of anonymity , has become sour and dark , and he has turned against most of his aides — even...Jared Kushner — describing them in a fury as ‘incompetent , ’ according to one of those advisers.” The downward turn in the president’s regard for his key aides has sparked much speculation about potential firings and reassignments. Those generally considered to be most at risk are press secretary Sean Spicer and Reince Priebus , the White House chief of staff.Thus far , it doesn’t not seem as if Kushner’s position is in peril , and that may simply come down to family ties. Kushner , who has no government or foreign relations experience , has become a key figure in handling communications between the White House and officials in both other nations and domestic corporations , notes Vanity Fair. Until recently , he’s also been described as a person who easily gains access to the president , something most staffers find themselves in constant battle to do.How much , if at all , that changes with Trump’s reported decline in disposition and relations with his aides remains to be seen.
