US Podcast: Trump’s Son-in-Law Is Not Qualified for His New Job
I spoke with BBC Radio Coventry on Tuesday about President-elect Donald Trump’s naming of his son-in-law, property developer Jared Kushner, on his White House staff.
While the appointment may violate an anti-nepotism measure adopted in 1967, that is not my main concern. While there could be issues of conflict of interest, that is not the foremost problem.
Instead, the immediate issue is Kushner’s lack of qualifications for his portfolio, which includes trade issues and the “Middle East”, including resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
