Jared Corey Kushner is a businessman and investor from the United States. He was born on January 10, 1981. He was the top advisor to Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States and his father-in-law.
Kushner started Affinity Partners after he left the White House. It is a private equity firm that gets money from the Saudi government’s sovereign wealth fund, among other places.
Kushner is the son of Charles Kushner, a former real estate developer. He is married to Ivanka Trump, the daughter of former President Trump and a businesswoman who is also an advisor. Because his father was found guilty of fraud and sent to prison, he took over running his father’s real estate company, Kushner Companies.
This was the start of his business career. Later, he also bought Observer Media, which is the company that runs the New York Observer. He helped start and owns part of Cadre, an online platform for investing in real estate. He also helped start the company WiredScore, which rates the quality and reliability of buildings’ digital infrastructure.
During Trump’s campaign for president in 2016, Kushner helped plan and run his digital media strategy. In 2017, he was named a top advisor at the White House, which raised questions about favoritism.

He also caused a lot of trouble with his business dealings and the fact that he made money off of policy ideas that he himself pushed for in the administration.
Kushner couldn’t get Top Secret Security clearance until May 2018, when Trump is said to have helped out his son-in-law. As President Trump’s top advisor, Jared Kushner pushed hard for the First Step Act, a bill to change the way criminal justice works that Trump signed into law in 2018.
Kushner wrote the Trump peace plan to solve the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. It was released in January 2020 and was widely seen as very good for Israel. It also suggested a way for the Palestinians to have their own country.
Kushner was the main person from the Trump administration who took part in talks about the Middle East Peace Process, which led to Israel and several Arab states signing the Abraham Accords and other normalization agreements in 2020. Kushner was an important part of the Trump administration’s response to COVID-19.
At the beginning of the pandemic, he told Trump that the media was exaggerating how dangerous it was, but he later led the federal effort to get medical supplies and equipment and to make a vaccine. He was one of the main people who worked on the agreement between the US, Mexico, and Canada. For this, the Mexican government gave him an award.

He gave $100 million to right-wing candidates for midterms and wants to replace the Koch brothers as the GOP’s next kingmaker so he can shove corporate fascism down our throats. pic.twitter.com/w0XrqfwRUO

Reichel and Joseph Kushner, his paternal grandparents, lived through the Holocaust and came to the United States in 1949 from Navahrudak, which is now in Belarus.

Daniel Golden, a journalist, says that Kushner’s father whose foundation gives away millions of dollars each year to charities, gave $2.5 million to the university in 1998, not long before Jared was admitted.
He also gave money to several other universities around the same time. Several of the sources cited in the book later said that Golden’s reporting was not true, calling the claims “distorted” and “false.”
At Harvard, Kushner was elected to the Fly Club, helped the campus Chabad house, and bought and sold real estate in Somerville, Massachusetts, as vice president of Somerville Building Associates, a division of Kushner Companies, making a $20 million profit by the time it shut down in 2005.

In 2004, Kushner’s father admitted to 18 felony charges of tax fraud, election violations, and tampering with witnesses. Chris Christie was in charge of the case against Charles Kushner. He later became Governor of New Jersey and was part of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign team for a while.
Christie later said that Jared Kushner got him fired as payback for Christie sending his father to prison. In 2017, information released by the government showed that Kushner and his wife had assets worth at least $240 million and up to $740 million.
They also have a collection of art that is worth a lot of money but wasn’t mentioned in the initial financial disclosures. The United States Office of Government Ethics has said that the updated disclosures follow the rules and laws.
