Jared KushnerAccording to a new book, the son-in-law of former U.S. President Donald Trump and former White House adviser had a “violent argument” with Rona McDaniel, chairman of the Republican National Committee, before the 2020 election.
“I don’t know anything about the future of the Republican Party!” Kushner told McDaniel in the lobby of the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC.This is based on an excerpt from a new book by Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender, “Frankly, we did win this election: An inside story on how Trump failed”, which was published on Tuesday Fox News.
Before Kushner exploded, RNC is closely related to Trump’s campaign in Brad Pascal’s term.
“By 2020, the Republican National Committee is more than just an extension of Trump’s campaign. (2020 campaign manager) Brad Pascal effectively turned them into a complete partner, and Rona became president One of the closest advisers. The Republican National Committee is paying for the campaign. The field staff. They pay for state directors who cannot receive calls from the campaign headquarters. Even the rental of the campaign headquarters is paid by the RNC.” Bender wrote.
Pascal is Downgraded to campaign manager In July 2020, support Kushner’s allies Bill Stepien (Bill Stepien) and Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie served as a senior aide in the “Bridgegate” scandal.
According to the book, McDaniel held a grudge against Stephen after the two of them clashed during the Trump campaign in 2016, when she was leading the Michigan Republican Party and achieving a key victory there.
All of this led to “the tension at the highest level in the Trump world eventually erupted into a fierce quarrel between Rona and Jared in the Trump Hotel,” Bender wrote.
McDaniel has been excluded from the key strategy meeting, and Kushner “considered” taking over RNC’s online fundraising platform WinRed, making it even worse because he “thought that RNC could not complete the new business,” the excerpt said.
McDaniel told Kushner that WinRed may be an effective “legacy project” for the Republican Party, but he did not buy it.
“Jared is not interested,” the excerpt said. “‘I don’t care about the future of the Republican Party!'” he told Rona in the hotel conference room. “Good to know,” Rona shot back. “I will run for the second term chairman, and I will make sure you don’t get near here!
