Jared Kushner Makes Racist Comments About Black People “Complaining” About Systemic Problems

HeadlineOct 27, 2020

President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is facing widespread criticism after questioning whether African Americans want to be successful. He made the comment on “Fox & Friends.”

Jared Kushner: “One thing we’ve seen in a lot of the — the Black community, which is mostly Democrat, is that President Trump’s policies are the policies that can help people break out of the problems that they’re complaining about, but he can’t want them to be successful more than they want to be successful.”

Democratic Congresswoman Gwen Moore of Wisconsin responded on Twitter by writing, “Trust fund baby slumlord Kushner who has enriched himself in the White House takes the silver spoon out of his mouth long enough to insert his foot with a racist trope about Black people and success.”
