Kushner Urges Restraint In Declaring Border Emergency


January 11, 2019 at 6:38 am EST By Taegan Goddard

“Inside the West Wing, Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has been lobbying for restraint,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

“Declaring a national emergency, an option Mr. Trump has been leaning toward, shouldn’t be used to try to win a messaging war against Democrats opposed to a wall, Mr. Kushner said in a recent Oval Office meeting.”

“Instead, Mr. Kushner argued an emergency should be invoked only if it creates a clear path for the White House to build the wall, the key issue in the standoff between Mr. Trump and congressional Democrats that has led to the shutdown.”

1. Sounds like an 8th grader who didn't read the book

Jimmy Kimmel said that Jared is “the puppet he (Trump) brought to life”

2. Something smart from Kushner?

I guess even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

3. Actually it is not.

He still wants to use the idea of a wall to justify a national emergency.
