Who is Jared Kushner? Profile of Ivanka Trump’s husband and senior adviser to the President

20 May

“They very innocently set us up thinking that our only interest in one another would be transactional,” she told Vogue. The pair dated but split up. Then Wendi Deng, Mr Murdoch’s then-wife, reportedly invited him on the family’s yacht – only for him to find Miss Trump had been invited as well.

They were reunited and married in 2009.

And, until 2015, the couple lived a golden existence; friends with Chelsea Clinton and her husband, and spending time with Mr Kushner’s brother Josh, an online entrepreneur who is the long-term boyfriend of Victoria’s Secret supermodel Karlie Kloss. 

They live in an elegant, art-filled flat on Park Lane and now have three photogenic children – Arabella, now five; Joseph, three, and Theodore, born in March.

When Mr Trump announced he was running for president, in June 2015, Mr Kushner became interested in the campaign – in particular, it is said, when he attended a rally and saw the passion of Mr Trump’s followers.

And Mr Trump became increasingly impressed by his son-in-law. 

Mr Kushner has liaised with dozens of influential figures, including Henry Kissinger, Paul Ryan, Rupert Murdoch, and, until recently, Roger Ailes.
