Jared Kushner ripped to shreds for Fox New comments on Black Americans

Jared Kushner suggested Black Americans just didn’t want to be successful — and social media users were shocked and disgusted.

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser appeared Monday morning on Fox News, where he argued that the administration’s policies would help Black Americans, but only if they wanted to succeed.

“President Trump’s policies are the policies that can help people break out of the problems that they’re complaining about but he can’t want them to be successful more than that they want to be successful,” Kushner said.

He also claimed that the nationwide protests were insincere after George Floyd’s killing by police.

“You saw a lot of people who were just virtual signaling,” Kushner said. “They would go on Instagram and cry, or put a slogan on their jersey or write something on a basketball court, and quite frankly that was doing more to polarize the country than it was to bring people forward.”
