Tillerson Blasted Kushner for 'Endangering' US in Middle East, New Book Claims

Tillerson Blasted Kushner for 'Endangering' US in Middle East, New Book Claims Tillerson Blasted Kushner for 'Endangering' US in Middle East, New Book Claims

The heated exchange - which is described by Vicky Ward in her upcoming book "Kushner, Inc.", an excerpt of which was provided to ABC News ahead of its expected March 19 publication - marks just one example of the many ways Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and senior adviser, and Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter who also serves as a senior adviser, exert their power and privilege in the White House.

The book, the Times reported, said that in his meeting with Ivanka Trump, Cohn was "shocked" by her reaction to his concerns and that she told him of her father's comments, "That's not what he said".

Mr Bookbinder said: "White House advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner show why nepotism laws exist: This is not only an ethics issue but a national security issue".

Ward, editor at large at HuffPo, 'digs beneath the myth the couple has created, depicting themselves as the voices of reason in an otherwise insane presidency, and reveals that Jared and Ivanka are not just the President's chief enablers: they, like him, appear disdainful of rules, of laws, and of ethics, ' according to the book's summary.

But ultimately he and Donald Trump turned on them, agreeing that they would find a way to force them to resign so the president could put them on a plane back to Manhattan.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has denounced it as a work of 'fiction'.

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly blamed Kushner for Trump's endorsement of a blockade of Qatar by Saudi Arabia, and told him that "his interference had endangered the USA". If he wanted Ivanka and Jared fired, he'd have to do it himself, Kelly told Trump.

Noah Bookbinder, who worked in the corruption department and was the executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said the way President Donald Trump treats his daughter and son-in-law could cause significant problems for the US.

'She thinks she's going to be president of the United States, ' Cohn says. Correcting everything wrong would take too long and be pointless, ' Peter Mirijanian, the spokesman, said. The author, on her own website, listed this book in the category of "fiction" - until recently changing it.
