Jared Kushner Criticized For Calling U.S. Citizens The Government’s ‘Customers’

Following a failed travel ban and healthcare bill, President Donald Trump now wants to change how the government works by creating an entirely new government department called the White House Office of American Innovation to privatize some key government functions. And he’s putting his son-in-law Jared Kushner in charge of it.

However, Kushner got off to a bad start when he described American citizens as “customers.”

“We should have excellence in government,” Kushner said in a Sunday interview published in the Washington Post. “The government should be run like a great American company. Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens.”

People are not happy at the comparison, and many have taken to Twitter to helpfully readjust Kushner’s apparently upside down understanding of how government works.
