Visit comes as trade tensions loom
As Canada’s cabinet meets to discuss how to adjust to the new Trump Administration, Reuters is reporting that Jared Kushner – husband of President Trump’s daughter and advisor Ivanka Trump – will go to Calgary on Tuesday.
Kushner’s visit comes at a time when Canada is under pressure to figure out what lies ahead for our trading relationship with the United States, as NAFTA renegotiation and potential import tariffs loom large.
Kushner is highly trusted by Donald Trump. He and Ivanka are considered the two people Trump will listen to the most – ahead of his senior aides and policy advisors.
New York Magazine even referred to Kushner as the “President In-Law,” while Trump has expressed confidence that Kushner will achieve the monumental task of securing peace in the middle-east.
