"I am not aware that he is under consideration but, as I think all of us here would recognize, he would be great in any role that the president chooses to put him in," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said of the news, which was also reported by CBS.

Once we hit the new year, there are likely to be several rounds of talks including possible U.S. delegations to Beijing and Chinese visits to Washington, though as of Thursday there was no schedule set up yet. The Chinese are good at making vague promises and then not doing much of anything to comply with them. This is not true of buying U.S. products, which they are more than happy to do and doesn't actually mean anything to their long-term goals.

    Time Person of the Year, Kushner as chief of staff: Darcy cartoon

    CLEVELAND, Ohio --Time magazine has chosen killed and imprisoned journalists as its 2018 'Person of the Year.' Assassinated Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi is on one of several different covers featuring journalists. My nomination for 'Pariah of the Year' is Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, who the CIA concluded ordered Khashoggi's brutal killing. For "Pawn of the Year" I nominate Jared Kushner, who MBS bragged about having in his pocket to UAE crown prince Mohammed bin Zayed. The New York Times recently reported on how the Saudi crown prince had targeted Kushner two years ago as a Trump administration member to exploit. Crown prince MBS and crown prince Kushner became chummy,

    How Jared Kushner Replaced Michael Cohen as Trump's National Enquirer Connection

    Shortly after the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner was handed a task considered critical to the president's operations. In addition to serving as a senior adviser in the White House, he would also be playing the role of the main conduit between Trump and his friend David Pecker, the National Enquirer publisher and chief executive of AMI, which prosecutors said on Wednesday admitted to making a $150,000 hush-money payment “in concert with” the Trump campaign. During the early months of the Trump era, Kushner performed the task admirably, discussing with Pecker various issues over the phone, including everything from international relations to media gossip, according

    AP: Ivanka, Kushner could profit from tax break they pushed

    WASHINGTON (AP) — At an Oval Office gathering earlier this year, President Donald Trump began touting his administration's new real estate investment program, which offers massive tax breaks to developers who invest in downtrodden American communities. He then turned to one of the plan's strongest supporters. “Ivanka, would you like to say something?” Trump asked his daughter. “You've been pushing this very hard.” The Opportunity Zone program promoted by Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner — both senior White House advisers — could also benefit them financially, an Associated Press investigation found. Government watchdogs say the case underscores the ethical minefield they created two

    Jared revealed to have beenDavid Pecker's top Trump contact

    Jared Kushner has been revealed to have been the primary point of contact between Donald Trump and National Enquirer boss David Pecker after the 2016 presidential election. Kushner's role, reported by the Daily Beast, is gaining exposure just as Pecker's role as a participant in a 'catch-and-kill' arrangement to bury negative stories about Trump is being examined as a potential criminal liability for the president. Kushner's broad portfolio has inspired envy as well as some ridicule. But his connections to Pecker now connect him to a Trump friend whose role in 'hush' agreements have brought potential criminal exposure for the president. Prosecutors say Trump, Pecker, and lawyer Michael Cohen
