Teen Vogue: Here’s How Rich Trump’s White House Team Really Is
Jared Kushner, who has been tasked with everything from brokering peace in the Middle East and solving the opioid crisis to addressing government bureaucracy, is reported to have stepped down from positions in more than 200 business entities to work in the White House, but as Larry Noble, a former general council for the Federal Election Commission, told The New York Times, that “is not sufficient. While removing himself from the management of the businesses is an important step, he is still financially benefiting from how the businesses do. This presents potential for a conflict of interest.” The New York Times also notes that the disclosures for Kushner’s $741 million in assets do not reveal the names of some investors or lenders of projects in which he holds stakes. His real estate company has also borrowed money from banks including Goldman Sachs.
