Trump Considering Jared Kushner as White House Chief of Staff

Reports surfaced on Thursday suggesting that President Donald Trump is considering hiring his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as the next White House Chief of Staff. Kushner currently serves as a senior White House Advisor. A replacement is required for outgoing Chief of Staff John Kelly, who is slated to leave the White House in January.

Kushner’s influence with his father-in-law and in the administration is well-known. He’s been tasked as an unofficial representative for the United States on numerous diplomatic issues, such as dealing with Saudi Arabia and Mexico. He had been described as a significant figure on the Trump campaign, and married Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka in 2009. Figures within the campaign have described Kushner as a figure who was instrumental in instilling a sense of order and organization in the Trump campaign after the New York businessman secured the Republican nomination in the spring of 2016.
