"Donald Trump does not want to fire anyone directly", journalist Natasha Bertrand offered. However, it was unclear how this would impact Kushner - especially since his father-in-law, President Donald Trump, had the power to grant Kushner a permanent clearance.
Kushner has lost his access to top-secret USA intelligence information in recent weeks because of his inability to obtain a security clearance at that level. "Every time you do this, you get a retaliation".
"If the reason that this administration put U.S. troops at risk in Qatar was to protect the Kushners" financial interests, then that's all the evidence you need to make some big changes in the White House, ' Murphy said. Trump called out to his daughter, mocking her too.
Given the fact that Trump is a free soul, it is hard to imagine how Russia's interest can be served by such an unpredictable trait. "He starts out each morning asking everyone, 'Has he been impeached yet?' Mike, you can't be impeached when there's no crime, please remember that".

The New York Times reported that Kushner accepted millions in loans from two companies after meeting with them at the White House. He later referenced the #FreeMelania hashtag. "[Adviser] Steve Miller or [first lady] Melania Trump?"
Trump added that countries that impose the death penalty on drug dealers have a better record than the United States in fighting substance abuse. Meanwhile, Trump's entire presidency was about "giving hicks hope".
