A new report claims that former President Donald Trump expressed resentment towards his son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner for constantly pressuring him to pander to “the blacks,” noting, “And they all fucking hate me, and none of them are going to vote for me.”
Senior White House reporter Michael C. Bender makes the claim in a new book titled, Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost. According to the book, Trump told a confidante, “I’ve done all this stuff for the blacks – it’s always Jared telling me to do this. And they all fucking hate me, and none of them are going to vote for me.”
“I’ve done all this stuff for the Blacks—it’s always Jared telling me to do this,” Trump said to one confidante. “And they all fucking hate me, and none of them are going to vote for me.”

Kushner’s push to appease violent Black Lives Matter rioters in the wake of the George Floyd death in Minnesota, coupled with his bungling of Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign, reportedly led Trump to avoid Kushner and complain about him in private during the summer of 2020.
Certain passages of the book appear to corroborate reporting in July 2020 that Trump became fed up with Kushner’s “woke s**t” after watching coverage by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson:
President Donald Trump reportedly regrets letting son-in-law Jared Kushner take the reigns on foreign and domestic policy, in light of the negative public response to the Trump administration’s ill-received efforts to placate Black Lives Matter rioters over the past month. Axios reported Wednesday that sources inside the White House say Trump wants “no more of Jared’s woke sh*t,” after several weeks of abysmal polling for the administration that indicates an uphill battle in the 2020 election, and no net increase in black voters.
Carlson, who became the most-watched cable news host of all time during the month of June, has repeatedly praised Trump’s instincts while contrasting said instincts unfavorably with Kushner’s policies, and the end result of enacting them. “Donald Trump may lose this election,” Carlson said last week, pointing out that despite virtue signalling for “criminal justice reform” from the White House, Black Lives Matter still polled significantly higher than the President.
