Donald Trump‘s White House might not be a family affair for too much longer.
It’s been reported that the President has encouraged Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to stay in their White House roles — while simultaneously having “privately asked” Chief of Staff John Kelly to help him remove the couple!
Aids told the New York Times that, in private, Donny has been growing “frustrated” with his son-in-law, “whom he now views as a liability” due to the mounting legal issues and investigations closing in on the 37-year-old.
While Trump may still be acting chummy to his kids’ faces, the plan to push them out looks to already be in motion.
Kelly stripped Kush-balls of his top-level security clearance earlier this week, days after the Times reported that his family business received about $500 million in loans from two U.S. companies after their execs met with Kushner in the White House — which is shady, if not lazy, even by the Donald’s standards.
On top of actions that critics are calling a conflict of interest between his government work and family business, Kushner could very well still face legal peril in the Russia probe.
“In private conversations, the president vacillates between sounding regretful that Mr. Kushner is taking arrows and annoyed that he is another problem to deal with.”
True, Trump has got bigger problems to deal with: pending nuclear wars, the Russia probe, hiding that damn bald spot. It never ends!
But if the President does end up giving his daughter and son-in-law the F-word, their White House exit will likely come as a relief for everyone. An insider told People:
“If they leave they’ll be happy to go back to their old lives. They love their kids so much and this is so distracting, to be a young family and have all this pressure instead of focusing on the kids. But now Jared’s name will be tarnished, which sucks for them.”
Sounds like it a clean break is in everyone’s best interest — hopefully that’s when Melania Trump can make her escape, too!
