At the previously unreported meeting, Jared Kushner's father Charles, who runs Kushner Companies, and Qatari Finance Minister Ali Sharif Al Emadi discussed financing for the Kushners' signature 666 Fifth Avenue property in New York City.

When asked whether he would fire Mueller such an investigation, Trump was noncommittal. Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly looking at Kushner's interactions with foreign businesses. "Any claim otherwise is false". The new policy will likely raise the price of everything from canned beer to cars, and other countries are already threatening to retaliate, but "what's interesting is how Trump came to this decision", Colbert said.

Rob Weissman, president of the legal nonprofit Public Citizen, said the news didn't bode well for Kushner. Some colleagues privately mock Kushner as a shadow of his former self; one official likened the work of his Office of American Innovation to headlines in "The Onion", the satirical news website. A spokeswoman for Kushner Companies told the newspaper that Kushner's senior advisory role in the White House played no part in the loans.

Its special forces responded by calling in artillery strikes, ground attack jets and B-52 bombers, which all but wiped out the "battalion sized force" in front of them.

Kushner's security clearance has been downgraded from "top-secret" to "secret", and on Wednesday night the Times revealed that the Kushner family had received half a billion dollars in loans after meeting with lenders' executives in the White House.

Trump's son-in-law and first daughter have also been a target of Kelly's.

Kushner remains invested in his family firm. Kushner's background check has not cleared, even after Kushner spent months of working for the administration, leading White House chief-of-staff John Kelly to pull the plug on much of what Kushner can hear and see in his role. Christine Taylor, a spokeswoman for Kushner Companies, said Kushner's White House position has no impact on the company's affairs with financial institutions.
