Trump’s son in law’s sister Nicole Kushner gave a presentation in China explaining how wealthy investors could immigrate to the US by investing $500,000 in a Kushner real estate project in New Jersey.
The Washington Post reported, “Over several hours of slide shows and presentations, representatives from the Kushner family business urged Chinese citizens gathered at the Ritz-Carlton hotel to consider investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a New Jersey real estate project to secure what’s known as an investor visa…Saturday’s event in Beijing was hosted by the Chinese company Qiaowai, which connects U.S. companies with Chinese investors. The tagline on a brochure for the event: “Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.”
The Kushners are selling their connection to the President Of The United States as a way to make money while allowing wealthy Chinese people to immigrate to the United States. This is the exact opposite of the “America First” policy that Trump is talking about it. Apparently, Trump’s tough stance on immigration doesn’t apply to investors in his in-laws’ projects.
When experts warn about the many layers of conflicts of interest that come with the Trumps, this is exactly what they are referring to. Much of the focus on conflicts of interest have rightly centered around the president and his immediate family, but the influence selling and profiteering off the presidency are deeper than the Trump last name.
The Trumps and their entire family are profiting off of the presidency. One of the reasons why it is vital for Democrats to win control of the House or Senate is because investigations need to be done into these activities.
The only way that the Trump family crime wave will stop is if voters put an end to Republican control of Congress at the ballot box.
