Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s Jewish son-in-law, has joined the growing chorus urging the president to concede defeat in his reelection bid, CNN’s White House correspondent, Kaitlin Collins, reported.

That puts him at odds with the president’s sons, Eric Trump and Donald Trump, Jr. who have become two of the loudest voices backing President Trump’s baseless claims of an electoral victory.

According to CNN, the two have moved beyond Twitter, working with allies to drum up conservative support as the president’s legal challenges to vote counts continue in a variety of states.

However, those efforts have received only lukewarm support from the GOP.

Within the president’s family and inner circle, Kushner is joined by Trump’s own wife, Melania, in pushing him to accept the results, CNN reported.
