In his recently published memoir, Jared Kushner made the allegation that his wife, Ivanka Trump, was instructed by her father to set up a meeting with Hillary Clinton in the waning hours after her father’s victory over his Democratic opponent in the 2016 election. Kushner made the claim that the directive came from the president-elect himself.
The book Breaking History was written by the son-in-law of Donald Trump, who quickly rose through the ranks of the family to assume a senior White House adviser role in his father-in-administration. law’s He is known as Jared Kushner.
According to a White House Memoir that is scheduled to be released on Tuesday, Mr Trump attempted to mediate a meeting between himself and Ms Clinton to mend their “friendly relationship.”
According to Mr Kushner’s account, the former real estate billionaire “genuinely wanted to help the country unite” in his work on behalf of the Trump administration. The Hill was the first news source to report the information from the book.
The proposed meeting came after Mr Trump spent months sowing discord in his bid for the White House in 2016, which included an in-person promise made to Ms Clinton on stage during the 9 October presidential debate, where he swore to have his attorney general “look into your situation” if he was elected president.

Ivanka Trump was reportedly asked by her father shortly after Hillary Clinton had delivered her concession speech to reach out to her former friend Chelsea Clinton, 42, to see if the two of them could find a way to broker a dinner between the soon-to-be 45th president and the couple who had occupied the White House for the better part of the ’90s.
This request was reportedly written by Ivanka Trump’s husband. Chelsea Clinton was not immediately available for comment.
Mr Kushner wrote about the soon-to-be commander in chief, who had championed the “lock her up” chants in the latter half of his campaign about his Democratic opponent. “He even told Ivanka to invite Hillary and Bill for dinner in the coming weeks,” Mr Kushner said of the soon-to-be commander in chief.
According to what Mr Kushner writes in his tell-all memoir, the meeting seemed to take a turn for the worse not long after it was sponsored by the president.
Mr Kushner writes that “Ivanka did phone Chelsea,” but he adds that “days later Hillary backed [Green Party presidential contender] Jill Stein’s challenge to the election,” after which “Trump halted his outreach.”
The friendly relationship that existed between the Trumps and the Clintons in the early 2000s is well-documented. The now-famous photograph of the former secretary of state and her husband celebrating the wedding of Mr Trump to his third wife Melania Trump at his Florida resort in Mar-a-Lago was dug up numerous times throughout the 2016 election as evidence of their cosier years.
