Ivanka Trump special treatment a national security RISK claims former prosecutor

The author tweeted Monday night that she wrote the book "in part to pierce the narrative that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have been moderating influences on the president". Kushner asked Corallo, an Army veteran and longtime Washington public relations executive.

In a conversation in August 2017 with Ivanka Trump, the president's eldest daughter and senior adviser, Mr. Cohn was shocked by her reaction to his concerns, according to a new book about Ms. Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner.

"[They're] the type of people who, if you don't pretty much indicate quickly that you're happy to shove your head up their ass, you're immediately a threat", the source explained.

The book discusses the upbringings of both Ivanka Trump and Kushner and the initial skepticism by the parents on both sides, mostly for religious reasons, about their marriage, according to The Times.

Cohn did not end up resigning over that particular incident - he later left as White House economic adviser over a Trump trade policy - but the interaction reportedly changed his view of the Trump children.

On Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders denounced the book a week before its publication date, suggesting certain anecdotes as relayed by Ward are inaccurate and characterizing her book as a work of "fiction".

Seating arrangements on flights have been problematic for White House officials throughout Trump's presidency.

The book, written by journalist Vicky Ward, claims that the president wanted them removed from their White House positions, because they "didn't know how to play the game" and that he was particularly upset that stories about them brought him negative press.

Kushner's camp blasted the book, with a spokesman for Jared's attorney Abbe Lowell telling the Times that '[e] very point that Ms. Ward mentioned in what she called her "fact checking" stage was entirely false'.

He added: "Correcting everything wrong would take too long and be pointless".

Instead of firing Trump's daughter and son-in-law, the book, according to the Times, said Kelly and the President "agreed that they would make life hard enough to force the pair to offer their resignations, which the president would then accept". "Because if [Kushner] has to leave, then [Ivanka] has to leave".
