Jared Kushner is criticizing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for sending migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
Appearing on Fox News, Kushner asserted that “we have to remember that these are human beings, they’re people, so seeing them being used as political pawns is very troubling to me.”

Kushner was a lifelong Democrat before serving in the Trump administration. He donated to Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2008 and was a supporter of Barack Obama.
The former senior advisor to President Donald Trump and husband of Ivanka Trump is described in Peter Navarro’s new book as the “clown Prince himself,” “Rasputin in training,” and a “rich, run-of-the-mill liberal New York Democrat cum slumlord with a worldview totally orthogonal” to Trump’s.
Last year, Kushner praised Joe Biden’s foreign policy in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal.
“The Biden administration called Iran’s bluff early,” Kushner wrote. “It should continue to play the strong hand it was dealt.”
Kushner was also a leading proponent of Trump’s First Step Act, which helped to lower inmate populations and free criminals sooner. According to reports, Trump has since said that he regretted following his son-in-law’s lead on that initiative.
“One person who spoke with the president interpreted his thinking this way: ‘No more of Jared’s woke s***.’ Another said Trump has indicated that following Kushner’s advice has harmed him politically,” Axios reported in 2020.
At the time, Tucker Carlson blasted the legislation and blamed Kushner for it.
“In 2016, Donald Trump ran as a law-and-order candidate because he meant it,” Carlson said. “And his views remain fundamentally unchanged today. But the president’s famously sharp instincts, the ones that won him the presidency almost four years ago, have been since subverted at every level by Jared Kushner.”
