Trump wanted Ivanka, Kushner out of White House: Book

Kellyanne Conway's tweet about the college bribery scandal is a solid Trump burn

After Kelly advised Trump it would be too hard to fire them, the pair allegedly settled on making Ivanka and Jared's lives in the West Wing hard so they would want to resign.

Yeah, they're hella dumb, but those who work in White Houses should not throw stones.

Gary Cohn, formerly Trump's chief economic adviser, is said to have lashed out at Kushner shortly after the latter took office in January 2017.

The book discusses the upbringings of both Ivanka Trump and Kushner and the initial skepticism by the parents on both sides, mostly for religious reasons, about their marriage, according to The Times.

"What did you do to Jared and Ivanka?" the reporter asked him.

According to the report, the book said the couple sought to "control who could travel on trips funded by the State Department" and that Ivanka Trump frequently requested access to Air Force planes "when it was not appropriate".

The bill is largely symbolic, as Trump has said he'll veto it and Trump's emergency resolution is already tied up in the courts. Congress would have to pass a resolution explicitly endorsing an emergency declaration to prevent it from sunsetting.

Those emails, which have since been made public, make clear that Trump Jr. attended the meeting after being promised dirt on then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and, when told what to expect, replied, "If it's what you say I love it".

Donald Trump's affinity for the New England Patriots manifests itself in the strangest ways.

During a meeting with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Cohn was reportedly taken aback by Ivanka Trump's defense of her father, according to a New York Times review of a new book about the couple's rise to power within the White House.

In response to the book, a representative for Kushner said "It seems [Ward] has written a book of fiction rather than any serious attempt to get the facts".

Kushner's camp blasted the book, with a spokesman for Jared's attorney Abbe Lowell telling the Times that '[e] very point that Ms. Ward mentioned in what she called her "fact checking" stage was entirely false'.

There's context to Trump's quip: In a July 2018 story, the Times reported that when Trump would get frustrated with Kushner, he would joke that he "could have had Tom Brady" as his son-in-law instead of Kushner.
