As we begin to fully understand all the ins and outs of the current administration, a big question is – who really are Jared and Ivanka Kushner? Who are the people behind the façade? Acclaimed author and investigative journalist Vicky Ward draws back the curtain and gives us some insight into Kushner, Inc., which happens to be the title of her NYTimes bestselling book.
We find out how Jared and Ivanka’s fathers informed so much of their lives, and how Jared’s father thought his family was just like the Kennedy’s. We’ll also understand why Jared bears so much animosity towards Chris Christie, and what his 3-point plan was to rehabilitate the family name and reputation.
Plus – Vicky tells us how dependent Ivanka is on her father’s approval and how Jared and Ivanka have an authenticity problem.
We didn’t have near enough time to ask everything we wanted, but here’s our chat with Vicky that will be leaving you wanting to know more about Kushner, Inc.
