Jared Kushner, Born Into Wealth, Tells ‘Complaining’ Black People They Need To ‘Want To Be Successful’

White House senior advisor Jared Kushner said on Monday that Black people in the US who are “complaining” about all their problems had to “want to be successful” for them to benefit from President Trump’s policies.

“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 during a “Fox & Friends” interview.

“But he can’t want them to be successful more than they want to be successful,” he added.

The president’s son-in-law, who was born into wealth and had no experience in politics before Trump tapped him to be a top advisor in the White House, continued: “What you’re seeing throughout the country now is a groundswell of support in the Black community, because they’re realizing that all the different bad things that the media and the Democrats have said about President Trump are not true, and so they’re seeing that he’s actually delivered.”

The latest Gallup polling found the president’s approval rating among Black Americans at 12%. And Black Americans have overwhelmingly backed former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

During the “Fox & Friends” interview, Kushner also suggested that divisions plaguing the US were a result of celebrities and others “virtue signaling” after the May 25 police killing of George Floyd spurred nationwide protests over racism and police brutality.

“You saw a lot of people who were just virtue signaling,” he said. “They would go on Instagram and cry, or put a slogan on their jersey or write something on a basketball court, and quite frankly that was doing more to polarize the country than it was to bring people forward.”
