New Book Claims Trump Told Kelly to 'Get Rid Of' Ivanka, Kushner

New Book Claims Trump Told Kelly to 'Get Rid Of' Ivanka, Kushner

"Dude", the reporter said, "what did you do to Jared and Ivanka?"

The flap copy hardly presents a favorable view of the couple, noting 'they are entitled inheritors of the worst kind; their combination of ignorance, arrogance, and an insatiable lust for power has caused havoc all over the world, and may threaten the democracy of the United States'.

Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner arrive to the State of the Union address at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, Feb. 5, 2019.

"My dad's not a racist", she reportedly told Cohn, "He didn't mean any of it. ..."

The Kushner family's tower was eventually refinanced by Qatari-backed investors.

Instead of firing Trump's daughter and son-in-law, the book, according to the Times, said Kelly and the President "agreed that they would make life hard enough to force the pair to offer their resignations, which the president would then accept".

Ivanka Trump's comments came after the president initially blamed both sides for the violence, a day later condemned the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis, and a day after that said there were "some very fine people" on both sides of a clash that pitted anti-fascist protesters against marchers who had chanted "Jews will not replace us". The book claims Trump told his then-chief of staff John Kelly, to remove them and accused them of not knowing "how to play the game".

'She thinks she's going to be president of the United States, ' Cohn says.

Cohn then instructed the aide to bring the letter to White House counsel Don McGahn, who freaked out when he learned the letter had been sent to the wrong printer.

Upon receiving it and realizing it gone to the printer, McGahn said, 'Oh, f***!'

HuffPost editor Vicky Ward alleges in "Kushner Inc." that the president was looking for ways to rid the White House of his daughter, Ivanka Trump, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner because they were a source of constant negative press.

There's context to Trump's quip: In a July 2018 story, the Times reported that when Trump would get frustrated with Kushner, he would joke that he "could have had Tom Brady" as his son-in-law instead of Kushner. "It seems she has written a book of fiction rather than any serious attempt to get the facts".

"Every point that Ms. Ward mentioned in what she called her "fact checking" stage was entirely false", Peter Mirijanian told ABC News on Tuesday.

The paper reported that in writing the book, Ward spent two years interviewing 200 people, many of whom were granted anonymity.
