They say it’s the quiet ones we should worry about, and in this case, it’s Trump adviser Jared Kushner who is married to the president’s daughter, Ivanka. When Kushner opens his mouth, unsavory things seem to pour out of it. Donald Trump’s approval rating with Black Americans is dismal, and Kushner didn’t do his father-in-law any favors when he appeared on Fox & Friends in front of the White House.
Kushner admitted that African-Americans largely support Democrats, but from there, he said that Blacks must “want to be successful” for Trump’s policies to benefit them.
“One thing we’ve seen in a lot of the Black community, which is mostly Democrat, is that President Trump’s policies are the policies that can help people break out of the problems that they’re complaining about,” Kushner said Monday on Fox & Friends. “But he can’t want them to be successful more than they want to be successful.”

Of course, Kushner had zero experience for the job as a senior adviser to the president, and apparently, this mortician-looking racist jerkwad has no social skills, either. Trump lost among Black voters by about 82 percentage points in 2016, and in 2020 he still trails behind Democratic nominee Joe Biden for that demographic.
And there’s a good reason for that.
Donald Trump never abandoned the racially divisive campaign strategy that he adopted in 2016. In July, the president called Black Lives Matter a “symbol of hate.” Trump has stoked racial division in this country, and Kushner seems comfortable with that. Trump is an arsonist that lit a fire, retreated to his bunker, then came out to blame everyone that got burned.
And while Kushner speaks of Black Americans in such a condescending manner, it’s difficult to think of many people that became “successful” with minimal effort than Jared.
Joe Biden has a plan for Black Americans, and the Democratic nominee notes that “African Americans can never have a fair shot at the American Dream so long as entrenched disparities are allowed to quietly chip away at opportunity.” Trump has never admitted that systematic racism is a reality. But, do go off, Kushner.
