Trump Victory Sent Jared Kushner’s Liberal Brother Josh Scrambling

After Donald Trump’s shock electoral victory, Josh Kushner, the investor brother of Trump’s powerful son-in-law Jared, “scrambled” to calm worried employees, according to a report today in Forbes.

Kushner, who did not vote for Trump, is an investor and tech entrepreneur. According to Forbes, Kushner met with a hundred employees of his firms after the election. “It is no secret that liberal values have guided my life,” he told the magazine, “and that I have supported political leaders that share similar values.”

He also dates Karlie Kloss, also known as a liberal, although critics accused her of cultural appropriation recently after a geisha-themed photo shoot. She founded a coding camp for girls.

A health insurance firm Kushner founded, called Oscar, has been imperiled by Trump’s policies.

Kushner told Forbes that he continues to speak with his brother, now a top White House aide, every day.
