Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has the title of senior advisor for the Trump administration, but his job description has never been well defined, at least not for the public. But now it has been revealed that Kushner allegedly took on a lot of the jobs that former Trump lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen left behind, including being the direct contact with National Enquirer publisher David Pecker.
The Daily Beast reports that when the relationship between Trump and Cohen cooled and then soured, Kushner took over as a "conduit," with Pecker as the head of the National Enquirer's parent company, AMI. In the early days of the Trump administration, Kushner and Pecker spoke on the phone about various media matters, and the publisher was said to be pleased that he had so much front row access to the West Wing and Trump.
The report added that Kushner took on the position as "fixer in chief" plus guardian of the Trump name and image, serving as a liaison on various matters and projects on an as-needed basis. David Pecker had been a feather in Trump's cap for years, as AMI and the National Enquirer were able to kill and plant stories to aid Trump's reputation and later on, his campaign.
