Report: Jared Kushner Pushing for Rex Tillerson’s Ouster after Ivanka Snub

Recommended Posts

White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner is reportedly behind a plan to replace Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State — after a long-standing feud between the two intensified after Tillerson snubbed Kushner’s wife, Ivanka Trump, on her trip to India.

The New York Times first reported Thursday that CIA Director Mike Pompeo is being mulled as a replacement for Tillerson, who has been widely rumored to be on the way out for months. Pompeo is reportedly much closer to President Trump and has a good relationship with the President, unlike Tillerson, who has appeared to distance himself from Trump on a number of occasions.

Tillerson is also understood to have had a fraught relationship with Kushner and Ms. Trump, reportedly referring to the high-profile Manhattanite couple as “the royal family.”

The Washington Examiner, citing a former White House aide, reports that Tillerson’s decision last week not to send a senior State Department delegation for Ivanka Trump’s widely touted trip to the annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit in India was “the last straw” for Kushner and has led him to be a key voice calling for Tillerson to be fired.


There seems to be a lot of news referencing India today.... Interesting!

So it's the same ol', same ol' with the rich and famous.  You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.  But if you snub someone I want to get front page news, you're dead!   Sounds a lot like the Clinton mind set....:grumpier:
