A New York Times investigation into Jared Kushner’s real estate dealings with a multibillion-dollar Chinese company has sparked a new round of concern about the Trump family’s conflicts of interest. The New York Times reports that on November 16—a week after Trump’s election victory—Kushner held secret talks with Wu Xiaohui, head of the $285 billion Chinese company Anbang Insurance Group, to negotiate the joint redevelopment of 666 Fifth Avenue, one of dozens of buildings Kushner’s family business owns. The Times reports that at the meeting Wu toasted to Trump and said he hoped to meet President-elect Trump.
