As President Donald Trump searches for his next chief of staff, reports are coming in that he may promote his son-in-law Jared Kushner to the position.
In fact, Kushner seems to have already met with the president to express his interest.
John Kelly holds the Chief of Staff position currently, but at the end of the year Trump will need t o have his replacement lined up.
Trump has remarked that there are five people on his short list on potential candidates, could Kushner be one of them?
Maggie Haberman, a White House reporter for the New York Times, doesn’t think so and made that known via tweet:
“Vying for the actual title of chief of staff is really not fitting with Kushner’s MO, which has historically been dipping in and out of roles in shadow fashion without the accountability of a title.”
So far Nick Ayers, who was possibly most suitable for the position as he was Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, has already turned down the role. Representative Mark Meadows of North Carolina also rejected the offer.
