Trump changed his position shortly after taking office in Saudi Arabia, and Jared Kushner has now received $ 2 billion in investment from Saudi Arabia.
The New York Times reports:
Six months after leaving the White House, Jared Kushner received a $ 2 billion investment from a Saudi prince-led fund that was a close ally under the Trump administration, despite well-financial advisers’ objections to the deal.
The panel, which monitors the investments of Saudi Arabia’s leading sovereign wealth fund, has raised concerns over previously proposed documents on Mr Kushner’s proposed deal with Affinity Partners, a new private equity firm.
But a few days later, the board of directors of the $ 620 billion Public Investment Fund, headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the real ruler of Saudi Arabia and who benefited from Mr Kushner’s support during his tenure as White House adviser, was scrapped. .
It is not difficult to understand what happened.
As a candidate, Donald Trump was very hostile to Saudi Arabia, but suddenly, as president, Trump’s closest allies were the Saudis.
Trump is under investigation in Congress for selling access to foreign governments.
Trump’s DC Hotel was seen as a front for foreign governments to sort out Trump’s pockets and access American politics.
In this context, it is not surprising that Kushner left the White House and was rewarded for selling US foreign policy to Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia’s investment in Kushner’s company calls for a federal investigation because Jared Kushner appears to have sold access to US foreign policy.
