Kellyanne Conway, who served as a senior advisor to former President Donald Trump, reportedly said that Jared Kushner, who is Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, made billions of dollars while working in the government.
On Thursday’s episode of ‘The Story,’ Conway engaged in a heated debate with Juan Williams, who is also a contributor to Fox News.
A memo was released earlier in the day by the House Oversight Committee, which stated that relatives of President Joe Biden received $1.3 million between 2015 and 2017 from an associate with ties to China when Biden was vice president and shortly after he left office.
Payments were allegedly sent to Joe Biden’s son, daughter-in-law, brother, and an additional family member who has not yet been identified.
In a recent episode of ‘The Story,’ Martha MacCallum discussed the investigations into President Trump and whether or not his campaign in 2016 coordinated with Russia to win the election.
Williams then tried to pivot by mentioning Jared Kushner, the son of a wealthy real estate developer who worked as an adviser in the Trump White House, along with Ivanka Trump, who is Kushner’s wife and the president’s daughter.
“Why don’t you look into things like Jared Kushner getting $2 billion directly from the Saudis after former President Trump bragged about protecting the Saudi prince?” Williams asked.
“Kellyanne, is that a fair question about Jared Kushner?” he continued.
Shockingly, Conway admitted that Kushner made billions of dollars off Donald Trump’s administration while he was still in the White House.
“Well, Jared, of course, is the only person I think who has benefitted in the billions – with a ‘B’ – from the Trump presidency. That’s for sure. But look, I think whataboutism isn’t gonna work here.” Conway said.
Kushner’s notorious profiteering while Trump was in office is likely to become a heated campaign issue during the upcoming 2024 primary for the Republican presidential nomination
