Did Kushner and his team see the virus as a blue-state problem? - 2020-07-31
It was in mid-March when Politico first reported that Jared Kushner was taking on a key role in guiding Donald Trump on combating the pandemic. A CNN White House correspondent added the same day that Kushner is "becoming more involved" in the administration's coronavirus response, with one source telling the network that the president's young son-in-law is "in total control."
As regular readers know, it wasn't long before the presidential son-in-law was reportedly leading a "shadow task force" of his own, which had the effect of "causing confusion among many officials involved in the response."
It wasn't long before Kushner's initiative was seen as a predictable failure, though we're still learning more about why his efforts fell so far short.
