Trump Conspicuously Refuses to Answer Question About Jared and Ivanka Security Clearances

The book, which is due out on 19 March, describes Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump as "entitled inheritors of the worst kind" and scolds them for their alleged use of the government in their business dealings.

In a statement to The Times, a spokesman for Abbe Lowell, Kushner's attorney, flatly rejected the claims made in the book.

Following the death of a counterprotester at a demonstration by white nationalists in Charlottesville, Virginia, in which US President Donald Trump said there was blame on "both sides", White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump defended his statements.

Ward revealed clashes between Kushner and Ivanka Trump with high-profile aides in the Trump administration.

"[They're] the type of people who, if you don't pretty much indicate quickly that you're happy to shove your head up their ass, you're immediately a threat", the source explained.

Ms. Trump eventually won over the Kushners with her commitment to a grueling religious conversion regimen and her apparent intense desire to become part of a close-knit family. She granted many of her 220 subjects anonymity, according to the report.

Mr Bookbinder said: "White House advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner show why nepotism laws exist: This is not only an ethics issue but a national security issue".

Ivanka Trump found a work-around by inviting Cabinet-level officials to trips, The Times reported.

That's according to a new book by the journalist Vicky Ward that was previewed by The New York Times.

Instead of firing Trump's daughter and son-in-law, the book, according to the Times, said Kelly and the President "agreed that they would make life hard enough to force the pair to offer their resignations, which the president would then accept".

The book is filled with juicy stories likely to be dissected in Washington's back room, including an incident where Cohn noticed a document on his printer in his West Wing office that appeared to be a letter from Trump firing then-FBI director James Comey, Axios reported.

In response to the book, a representative for Kushner said "It seems [Ward] has written a book of fiction rather than any serious attempt to get the facts". "Correcting everything wrong would take too long and be pointless", he added.

"All to protect Jared and Ivanka", he told Ward.
