Book reveals how Trump used Tom Brady to insult son-in-law Jared Kushner

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

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.

According to The Times, "Kushner Inc.", scheduled for release March 19, describes Ivanka Trump as having frequently asked to travel on Air Force planes when doing so was not always necessary.

The book also said the President has wanted the couple to leave their posts at the White House and sought help to push them out from his former chief of staff John Kelly, whom he told, "Get rid of my kids; get them back to NY", according to the Times.

Kelly is alleged to have told Trump at the time that it would be hard to give his children the sack, and later decided with him that they "would make life hard enough to force the pair to offer their resignations", The New York Times reported.

Like many other White House tell-alls that have been published during Trump's first term, it is said to paint an unflattering picture of the Trump administration as chaotic, with discord among its senior staff.

With World Cup beginning from May 30 in England, Steve Smith and David Warner will also look forward to this IPL for practice. David Warner smashed 77-ball hundred while playing for his Sydney club side in his first match after an elbow surgery.


Ivanka reportedly found a work-around by inviting cabinet-level officials to the trip, The Times reported, citing the book. He would joke that Ms. Trump could have married Tom Brady, the quarterback for the New England Patriots, and once joked to Robert K. Kraft, the team's owner, that "Jared is half the size of Tom Brady's forearm".

The book also sheds new light on the scramble within the White House to explain the genesis of a controversial meeting at Trump Tower between high ranking members of the Trump campaign and an ensemble of Russians in June of 2016, which has since emerged as an area of intense interest for investigators seeking to determine whether the Trump campaign worked in concert with agents of the Russian government to impact the election.

"That's not what he said", she allegedly insisted.

Ricardel later left the White House to "transition to a new role within the Administration", according to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

In response to the book, a representative for Kushner said "It seems [Ward] has written a book of fiction rather than any serious attempt to get the facts".
