Ivanka and Jared are both senior advisers to US President Donald Trump, leading to Ivanka being dubbed the First Daughter. However, before they took up their roles in the Trump administration they worked for their respective fathers’ real estate companies – the Trump Organisation and Kushner Companies. Their professional lives often interacted and they worked as a team to charm clients and to be the other side of the coin to their fathers’ volatility.
President Trump’s brash demeanour is well-known, but Jared’s father Charlie Kushner was apparently equally ruthless in his business dealings.
However, according to 2019 book ‘Kushner Inc’, while Jared may give the impression of being more measured and reasonable, he has similarities to his father-in-law as well.
A business associate of his told author Vicky Ward: “Jared is as sinister as Donald Trump is.
“He’s not a pussycat, although he appears very pasty, well dressed, well put together, and always saying the right thing, doing the right thing. He’d be tough, too.”

Other colleagues and employees of Jared have similarly negative things to say about him.
According to Ms Ward, some found he lacked any genuine interest in real estate and was poor with the details.
Others claimed he was an “imperious delegator”, simply referring employees to someone else if they asked him for specifics, like a leasing figure.
Despite this, he appeared to maintain an inflated ego, telling the head of leasing on a project in DUMBO, Brooklyn: “If I had your job, I’d be so much better at it.”
