Jared Kushner says he's not interested in working for Trump again

 February 15, 2024

Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner told Axios that he has no desire to work in a second Trump administration. 

Kushner, one of Trump's top advisers during his tumultuous presidency, said he has enjoyed being "out of the spotlight" with his wife Ivanka.

While President Trump hasn't commented on the news, Kushner suggested Donald has nothing to worry about because his current team is the "best he's had."

Kushner's career decision

The possibility of a second Trump term is being taken seriously by Democrats, three years after the former president's political career was assumed to be over following the events of January 6th.

Trump's detailed policy plans to gut the federal bureaucracy and crack down on illegal immigration have alarmed critics, who say Trump appears more disciplined than his first go-around as a political novice.

Kushner said Trump's current team is more experienced than the one he had in 2016, which was more of a "family" operation.

"I suspect that if he gets into office again, he would have just a level of competence and professionalism, even more so than it was in the last administration."

"I think he has a much better understanding of who was effective and all these different roles and I suspect he'll have a very, very long list of very qualified people to choose from."

Out of the spotlight

While Kushner said his life has taken some unpredictable turns, he emphasized that he is focused now on his family and his private equity firm in Florida.

"I've really enjoyed the opportunity as a family to be out of the spotlight ... and so we've both really enjoyed the opportunity to be down here in Florida with the kids," he said.

Kushner choosing to sit out a second Trump term could mean fewer headaches for Trump, as Kushner has come under scrutiny for his controversial dealings with the Saudis, which some Democrats have used to draw comparisons to Hunter Biden.

Jared and his wife Ivanka Trump have kept their distance from President Trump's political activities over the last three years.

A loving Valentine's Day note from Ivanka to her husband, with a picture of the two kissing on the beach, underlined the couple's apparent disinterest in re-entering an extremely divisive and intense political arena.

Democrats are determined to prosecute and jail Trump on 91 different criminal counts, while Trump has vowed to seek "retribution" against opponents whom he has labeled "vermin."
