The Kushners and the Trumps are both known families for having New York real estate for decades. According to a new report, the two families are looking to make a deal together on a series of projects.
According to The New York Times, a new Jersey Shore development led by the Kushners will have at least one hotel managed by the Trumps. The agreement, according to the Times, has a signed letter of intent.
“The long-running talks blur the line between family, business and politics in ways that lack precedent: Both Mr. Trump and Mr. Kushner, the president’s senior adviser and son-in-law, retain financial interests in their family businesses,” the Times writes. “The Trump Organization’s outside ethics adviser has raised questions about a potential deal—one reason the two-year-long discussions have not been completed.”
The ethics advisor has pointed out that this might be the reason Jared Kushner is still working at the White House despite not having a full security clearance.
“The concern is that the president might not want to do anything that would upset the Kushner family agreement to do business with his company,” said the ethics advisor.
This is just another example of Donald Trump profiting from his presidency. He’ll keep Kushner around as long as possible in order to keep the deal between the two families.
