Outgoing Mexican President to Present Jared Kushner with Award

HeadlineNov 28, 2018

Outgoing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said Mexico will bestow the country’s highest honor for foreigners on Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, when Kushner arrives for the G20 talks. The move drew scorn from prominent Mexicans, including actor Gael García Bernal, who called the decision to award the Aztec Eagle award “tremendously shameful.” Previous winners include Nelson Mandela and Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel García Márquez.
