Jared Kushner Claims He and Ivanka Are Doing 'A Good Job' Helping Donald Trump Be Successful

White House adviser Jared Kushner has claimed he and his wife, Ivanka Trump, are doing a "good job at trying to help" President Donald Trump be successful, after former Vice President Joe Biden said the pair were unqualified to hold positions in the White House.

Kushner made the comments in an interview with News Israel 13 on Monday, when he also responded to criticism by Biden—who said in an interview with 60 Minutes on Sunday that it was improper for Kushner and Trump's daughter to have roles in the White House.

"A lot of the work that the president's had me doing over the last three years has actually been cleaning up the messes that Vice President Biden has left behind," Kushner said after Biden called into question his credentials.

"I think President Trump is entitled to pick his team. We've worked with him for a long time and I think we've done a good job at trying to help him be successful."

Biden told 60 Minutes that he did not think Kushner should not be negotiating a Middle East peace solution and said "all the talent is gone" from the administration.

Delving into the impeachment inquiry for the first time since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced it in September, Kushner—who CNN reported is among the White House officials involved in strategy over the inquiry—said the American people were sick and tired of the president being investigated.

"They've been trying to impeach the president for the last three years, or get him out of office and they have been unsuccessful at that," Kushner told Israel 13 of the impeachment inquiry—which came following whistleblower allegations that claimed Trump had attempted to persuade Ukraine to investigate Biden and his family.

"The best thing going for the president is that he hasn't done anything wrong and at this point they've investigated him over and over and over again and I think the American people are sick and tired of it, so while they focus on that, the president's record of accomplishments is unimpeachable and he's going to continue to do the things that the American people care about.

"If in Congress if they want to be part of the work we're doing to try to make the country stronger and to try to make the country more prosperous, we welcome them to join us, if they want to play silly games then we'll obviously deal with that in [an] appropriate manner but we're not going to let that distract us as an administration," he added.
