Donald Trump’s (76) son-in-law Jared Kushner (41) will publish his memoirs in August. In this, he made it public that he received a cancer diagnosis in 2019 – while working as an advisor to the then US President.
The Reuters news agency has excerpts from the book. In it, Kushner writes that White House physician Sean Conley took him aside when he was on Air Force One with Trump on his way to Texas. The doctor told her that her test results indicated she had thyroid cancer and that “surgery should be scheduled immediately.”
In November 2019, just before Thanksgiving, the husband of Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka (40) underwent surgery to remove “a significant portion of the thyroid”. Although internal White House information leaked from time to time during Trump’s tenure, he managed to keep the disease a secret from the public.
Donald Trump’s response
Kushner had no idea that his boss and father-in-law knew about cancer. “The day before the surgery, Trump called me into the Oval Office and told his team to shut the door,” Kushner recalled. “‘Are you nervous about surgery?’ He asked.” “How did you know about it?” Kushner asked him.
Trump’s response: “I’m the president. I know everything. I understand you want to keep these kinds of things to yourself. I like to keep these kinds of things to me. It’ll be fine. Work worries.” Don’t. We have everything under control here.”
Tough negotiations for a trade deal with China were taking place at the time of the operation.
At the time, Kushner was one of the main negotiators in the 2020 US-broker normalization agreement between Israel and several Arab countries. He is now the head of the investment firm Affinity Partners, which he founded, and has retired from politics for the time being. being.
The book “Breaking History: A White House Memoir” is scheduled to be released on August 23. The New York Times published excerpts from the book for the first time.
