The president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who has been trying to clean up his finances since at least 2016, is “the biggest mistake in the world,” according to one senior White House official.
In an interview with CNBC, Kushner acknowledged that he “lacked” information about the investments he made and said that he will “absolutely” tell his father-in–law what he knows about the transactions.
But Kushner has said in the past that he would disclose his financial holdings if asked. “
He will not be asked to disclose his own financial assets,” the official said.

And while his father was still in the White House, Kushner was an early backer of President Donald Trump’s candidacy.
Kushner has repeatedly touted his wealth and his connections to the president, and he has continued to defend his financial disclosure statements.
“The president, my father, has a very big influence in how my life is run,” Kushner said on NBC’s “Today” show in March.
“We’ll get through this, and we’re not going to get into a fight about it.”
Trump’s son and his family are under pressure to provide more details about their investments.
Earlier this month, the New York Times reported that Kushner has spent hundreds of millions of dollars to buy real estate in Manhattan, Miami, and New Jersey, in an effort to bolster his real estate empire.
He has also sold his stake in The Washington Post to the parent company of The Washington Times, and also made a $10 million contribution to the Republican Governors Association.
The president has also called on Kushner to come clean about his investments.
Trump has accused Kushner of using his financial interests to enrich himself and that he should be forced to reveal his assets.
“I know Jared and his father well, he is the son of the president,” Trump said at a White House press briefing last month.
“My father and I have had great conversations.
I have a lot of respect for his father.”
But the president has repeatedly said that his son and family do not have a conflict, saying in the interview that “they’re very well respected people in the business world.”
