Photos Of Jared Kushner In Iraq Get Ridiculed Online

President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner visited Iraq Monday at the request of Gen. James Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Kushner visited Iraq in his typical preppy garb and photos of him looking out of place in the wartorn country of Iraq were ridiculed Saturday on Twitter as #KushnerAtWar trended on the social media site.

Kushner, who has no foreign policy or military experience, has been tasked with several important issues for the Trump administration such as Middle East peace and liaison to both China and Mexico. White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks told CNN that the goal of Kushner’s visit to Iraq was to get an update on anti-ISIS efforts from U.S. and Iraqi officials.

The Trump son-in-law also reportedly pushed the Trump administration to strike Syria on Thursday, representing a win for the lifelong Democrat over White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
