A new report suggests there are concerns from within the White House regarding Jared Kushner’s relationship to the Saudi Crown Prince.
According to the New York Times Saturday, some members of the administration have feared Saudi Arabia was playing the White House senior advisor.
They say the concerns began in March of 2017 during Kushner’s trip to Riyadh.
While the article fails to mention any individual instance that lead to the concerns, they say the symbiotic relationship may be problematic.
Kushner and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman have had a close relationship over the years, and even gave him advice following the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.
The White House has responded to the report, saying Kushner has always followed protocol regarding his relationship with the Crown Prince.
