Amid mounting scrutiny over reports that White House senior adviser Jared Kushner wanted to set up secret communications with the Kremlin, President Trump on Sunday defended his son-in-law. In a statement released Sunday night, Trump had nothing but warm words for Kushner, saying he’s “doing a great job for the country" ad that he "is a very good person.” The New York Times on Sunday cited two inside sources saying they observed a marked souring of relations between the president and his son-in-law in recent days. Trump reportedly took issue with the Kushner family business’ promotion of an investment-for-visas scheme in China, a move which undermined Trump’s anti-immigration policies. Six West Wing aides were also cited in the report as saying Kushner convinced Trump that firing former FBI director James Comey would be a political “win,” though the move later triggered a major backlash from lawmakers.
