Here's How Donald Trump Reportedly Feels About Jared Kushner

Former President Donald Trump relied on his daughter, Ivanka Trump, for many things during his time in the White House. She served as her father's senior advisor — focusing mostly on economics (via Newsweek).

Trump spoke so highly of his daughter, claiming, "She has now created 14 million jobs." He boasted, "And they are being trained by these great companies, the greatest companies in the world because the government cannot train them," Newsweek reported. 

The Trump children were not the only ones serving in their father's cabinet, Ivanka's husband played a role in the administration. According to The Atlantic, Jared Kushner was considered the second most powerful man in the White House, only behind Trump himself and above his vice president, Mike Pence. Similar to his wife's role, Kushner was assigned as senior White House advisor.

Throughout his time in the White House, it was clear Trump relied on Kushner for many things, but it was unclear how he truly felt about his son-in-law on a personal level. Recently, a revelation about the way Trump feels about Kushner was made public.

Trump had positive things to say about his son-in-law

A new book by New York Times reporters, Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns offers an inside look at how former President Donald Trump really feels about his daughter, Ivanka Trump's, husband, Jared Kushner. The book, titled "This Will Not Pass," gives an inside look at the Trump years in the White House, even down to the nitty-gritty of the personal relationships involved (via Business Insider).

According to the book, Trump stated that Kushner was "the smartest guy I've ever met," adding that his son-in-law, "Can't throw a football ten yards, and Ivanka could have married Tom Brady. But he's a great kid, he's got my back," per the book obtained by Business Insider.

Before his son-in-law spoke to the House Committee about the January 6th Capitol riots Trump sang words of admiration about him. Kushner reportedly had given information that the committee found "valuable" (via Vanity Fair). During his presidency, though, they seemed to have had a close bond.
