(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In an op-ed on American Greatness, Peter Navarro, one of former President Donald Trump’s top trade advisers, blamed many of the administration’s failures on Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
The criticism from Navarro, who himself was recently arrested by the House’s partisan Jan. 6 committee, comes as some left-wing media outlets have floated the rumor that Kushner may have been a mole in the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
It also coincides with the release of the 41-year-old Kushner’s White House memoir, Breaking History, a nearly 500-page tome due for public release on Aug. 23.
Navarro opened his article by slamming Kushner as a leftist who only sought to subvert the President from the start.
“Kushner came to the D.C. swamp on the coattails of his wife [presidential daughter Ivanka Trump] as nothing more than a young and rich, run-of-the-mill liberal New York Democrat with a worldview totally orthogonal to the president he was supposed to serve,” Navarro wrote.
“Yet, within the West Wing, Kushner considered himself to be the ultimate ‘Trump whisperer,'” he added.
According to Navarro, the failures of the Trump administration are also reflected in the difference between his 2016 and 2020 campaigns.
“Ultimately, the biggest failure of the 2020 election was the failure of the Trump campaign itself,” he wrote, comparing the 2020 campaign to that of a fat-cat swamp politician.
“The campaign went from the beautifully orchestrated Steve Bannon masterpiece in 2016, with 20 people on Trump Force One barnstorming flyover country, to the ugliest equivalent of Hillary Clinton’s beyond bloated Hindenburg of a campaign in just four years.”
Navarro pinned the blame on Kushner, who was put in charge of the 2020 campaign, despite a multitude of prior failures.
But he said Trump supporters have reason to hope that the “clown prince” will have no part in a potential future Trump administration after revealing just how opportunistic he really is.
“Fortunately, if Trump makes it back to the White House, it will be a Kushner-free zone,” Navarro wrote. “Kushner has already disqualified himself from future White House employment by cashing in on his White House connections to fund his many entrepreneurial ventures.”
