Kushner, one of the most influential personel in Trump's inner circle, is credited with helping steer the presidential campaign to victory and has been expected to continue in a close advisory role to Trump after he takes office Jan. 20.
Information reaching is that Trump today would not discuss Kushner's role in the incoming administration, saying he will speak more about it during his Wednesday press conference.
“Oh, we'll talk about that on Wednesday,” Trump told reporters today at Trump Tower in New York City.
Kushner is preparing to resign from his position at Kushner Companies and “divest substantial assets,” said Jamie Gorelick, his attorney and partner at the law firm of WilmerHale.
Gorelick would not comment specifically on the report that Kushner will be named a senior adviser to the president but said Kushner is committed to complying with ethics laws.
“Mr. Kushner is committed to complying with federal ethics laws, and we have been consulting with the Office of Government Ethics regarding the steps he would take. Although plans are not finalized, Mr. Kushner would resign from his position at Kushner Companies and divest substantial assets in accordance with federal guidelines. He would recuse from particular matters that would have a direct and predictable effect on his remaining financial interests. He would also abide by federal rules requiring impartiality in particular matters involving specific parties,” Gorelick said in a statement.
Meanwhile Kushner's wife, Ivanka Trump, is expected to move with him to Washington, D.C. Her role, if any, in the White House remains unclear.
“If you look at Ivanka, take a look at — she is so strong into the women's issue, child care and so many things, she would be so good. Nobody could do better than her, and I just have to see whether or not we can do that,” Trump told “Fox News Sunday” last month.
“I would love to have Jared helping us with deals with other nations and see if we can do peace in the Middle East and other things. He's very talented,” Donald Trump said.
