Trump believes Jared will ‘take credit for all his accomplishments’ and is ‘jealous of his seven-figure book deal’, report claims
Donald Trump‘s relationship with Jared Kushner has started to sour according to a Wednesday report that reveals the former president is jealous of his son-in-law’s book deal and is worried he will take credit for his accomplishments.
‘He’s always been suspicious of Jared,’ a source told CNN.
The source noted that Trump has previously discounted Kushner’s role during his administration – especially in regards to some key policies like with criminal justice reforms and the Middle East peace deals.
‘It is not a secret President Trump doesn’t like when he thinks other people are getting attention for something he feels he has facilitated,’ a former Trump White House official said. ‘There’s a sweet spot between saying nothing about work you did and saying too much that everyone has to find — or else he gets triggered.’
Kushner, 40, is married to Trump’s eldest daughter Ivanka Trump, 39. The couple has three children together, Arabella, 9, Joseph, 7, and Theodore, 5.

After Trump left office January 20, 2021, Jared and Ivanka moved into a condo in Miami after purchasing a $30 million-plus lot of land on Indian Creek Island.
The former president has questioned whether Kushner really ‘accomplished peace in the Middle East after all’, according to two people familiar with conversations Trump had at his Bedminster, New Jersey resort since arriving in May.
He specifically started questioning Kushner’s work in that region after tensions between Israel and Hamas spiked into violent airstrikes last month.
The sources also claim that Trump has expressed jealousy about Kushner landing a ‘seven-figure book deal’ with Broadside Books, which is the conservative wing of the publisher HarperCollins.
Trump has yet to announce a book deal of his own, but has worked with several journalists on their books about his presidency.

One person who spoke with Trump recently told CNN that Trump is worried that Kushner could try to take credit for his achievements as president.
Some close to Kushner say there is no estrangement between him and his father-in-law.
‘He knows Trump acknowledges his successes,’ a person close to Kushner said.
The new report, however, comes just a few weeks after another report revealed that Kushner is stepping back from politics as he aims to establish a ‘simpler’ relationship with Trump.
Other than his son-in-law, Kushner, who is Jewish, also served as Trump’s senior adviser, specifically working on peace deals between Middle Eastern entities and Israel. He also oversaw his 2020 reelection campaign.
The former Trump adviser told a small circle of advisers, according to The New York Times, that he wants to focus on writing his book.
Those people told the New York Times that Kushner wants to end his professional relationship with Trump and instead just be his son-in-law.
