Dangers of Nepotism-Jared Kushner's Covid 19 Task Force

The Trump family has repeatedly used the White House to enrich themselves, but this is about way more than profits.

According to President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence is in charge of America's response to the coronavirus crisis. This choice was, in itself, controversial since Pence has no real experience in this area and his one attempt at dealing with a public health problem as governor of Indiana turned out very poorly. But what many Americans don't know is that an equally unqualified if apparently even more loyal Trump adherent is secretly running his own coronavirus task force, leaving a series of ethics issues in wake.

An equally unqualified if apparently even more loyal Trump adherent is secretly running his own coronavirus task force.

Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner is running a shadow coronavirus response task force. He's doing it off the books, with closed-door meetings and private email accounts. Recently, The Atlantic reported that a company co-founded by Kushner's brother — which used to be partly owned by Jared — developed a government website to direct Americans to coronavirus testing sites at the government's request. The website was created and then, for reasons that remain unclear, never went public.

 

This isn't normal Trump family grift; it is taking place with lives at stake. As the (original) headline of New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg's column read last week: "Jared Kushner is going to get us all killed."

Since the website never officially launched, we didn't find out about it until after the fact. And there's still much we don't know, mainly whether Kushner was involved in trying to direct government business to his family (Oscar Health says it wasn't paid for the project). While personal and family benefit is the modus operandi of the Trump administration, this goes beyond Trump's trying to host the G-7 summit at his struggling Doral golf resort. And what's worse, Kushner is going out of his way not to create government records of his actions, in an apparent violation of multiple laws.

When Obama was president no one would have thought he was using money earmarked for a tragedy to line his family's pockets.

The thought would not have crossed anyone's mind.

 

Who thinks Trump/Kushner et al. have found a way to profit from this pandemic?

Me, for 1.

My, but aren't we so safe with Jared in charge of the pandemic?  It just doesn't get much more disgusting than this. An experienced slum lord in charge of the Covid 19 crisis.
