Trump Had A Plan To Rid Himself Of Jared And Ivanka

( According to the new book “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America” by The New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, Donald Trump sought to oust Ivanka and Jared Kushner from their positions in the White House by letting them know via a tweet.

He was purportedly prevented from tweeting that “his daughter and son-in-law were leaving the White House” by his then-chief of staff, John Kelly, and White House counsel Don McGhan.

Kelly believed Trump should have told them face to face.

His daughter and son-in-law continued to serve as Senior Aides in the Oval Office, and that conversation never took place. According to allegations in Peter Navarro’s new book, Taking Back Trump’s America: Why We Lost the White House and How We’ll Win It Back, the former senior White House adviser may have been afraid of his family’s retaliation.

Five months before the election, in June 2020, “Donald Trump agreed to a ‘coup d’état’ to oust his son-in-law Jared Kushner from the leadership of his presidential re-election campaign and replace him with Steve Bannon,” claims Navarro.

According to the book, after Kushner addressed the public following his congressional testimony in 2017, Trump reportedly quipped, “He sounds like a child,” CNN said.

Navarro wrote that Bernie Marcus, the founder of Home Depot, a significant Republican fundraiser and a key figure in the coup, was ordered by Trump to “be the messenger” to Kushner because he feared “family issues if [he] himself had to deliver the bad news to… the father of his grandchildren.”

However, things didn’t go as planned when Kushner ignored Marcus’ initial call. When he finally spoke with the home improvement tycoon, Kushner said the following, according to Navarro:

The campaign was going well; there was little chance he would resign, so Bernie Marcus and his big-bucks supporters could effectively pound sand.

John Kelly, a former chief of staff in the White House, supposedly stopped his boss from “tweet-firing” Ivanka and Jared, but he wouldn’t be as fortunate. Before an Army-Navy football game, Trump told reporters, “John Kelly will be leaving—I don’t know whether I can say “retiring.”
