Jared Kushner Isn't Taking Down Trump With Book's White House Revelations

Donald Trump reportedly does not have to worry about any damning revelations in an upcoming book from his son-in-law and former White House adviser.

Instead, the former president can likely relax about the release this summer of Jared Kushner's Breaking History: A White House Memoir. The book, set to be released August 9, will not be used to "settle scores" of any kind but will "give a true insider account of history," publisher Broadside Books said, according to The Hill. This will be a stark contrast with other books from former Trump associates, which have not exactly put the former president or his administration in the best light.

Kushner, who is married to the Trump's daughter Ivanka, was seen as one of the president's closest and most trusted advisers and had a "wide-ranging portfolio," according to The Hill, that encompassed both domestic and foreign issues. They included the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and he was significantly involved in the creation of the Abraham Accords, in which Arab states such as the United Arab Emirates normalized ties with Israel in 2020.

"His memoir is his account of the most astonishing presidential campaigns in history, the high-stakes Russia investigation and impeachment trial, and the existential crises of the COVID-19 pandemic," the publisher's statement said.

Other former Trump administration members have not been nearly as kind. Late last year, Stephanie Grisham, a former White House press secretary, released her book, I'll Take Your Questions Now, which painted a less than rosy picture of the Trump White House.

She accused the former president of appearing to talk tough to Russian President Vladimir Putin only for the cameras and described a "casual dishonesty" that "filtered through the White House as if it were in the air conditioning system."

Cliff Sims, a former Trump White House communications aide, put out a book titled Team of Vipers: My 500 Extraordinary Days in the Trump White House. He wrote that the administration was "completely out of control" and that those closest to the former president were working to fulfill personal agendas.

In ABC reporter Jon Karl's Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show, former Trump Attorney General William Barr slams the former president's continued insistence on widespread election fraud in 2020 as "all bulls**t."

Barr also attacked the White House's legal efforts to overturn the results of the election, calling them a "clown show" and noting that "no self-respecting lawyer is going anywhere near it. It's just a joke."

News of Kushner's upcoming book comes after the former Trump senior adviser was criticized last month over the news that his newly formed equity firm, Affinity Partners, received a $2 billion investment from a fund led by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman not long after Kushner left the White House.
