High-profile rapper and clothing designer Kanye West has found himself in the spotlight yet again.
During a highly-anticipated interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, West harshly criticized former President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner alleging he only supported and pursued peace deals between Israel and several Arab states for his own personal profit.
“When I think about all of these things that Jared somehow doesn’t get enough credit for with his work — what is it his work? In Israel, what is this, in Palestine, you know where he made his peace treaties? do you know the facts on this right here?”
“I just think it was to make money,” West said.
West then reflected on a recent dinner he attended in Miami with Kushner, his wike Ivanka Trump and his brother Josh.
“After talking to them and really sitting with Jared and sitting with Josh and finding out other pieces of information, I was like, wow, these guys might have really been holding Trump back, being very much a handler,” West said. “They love to look at me or look at Trump like we are so crazy and they are the businessmen.”
“I think that’s what they are about is making money, I don’t think they have the ability to make anything on their own,” he continued. “I think they were born into money.”
West’s criticism of Kushner’s work in the Middle East follows similar allegations levied against the former Trump admin. senior adviser by The Wall Street Journal that he was motivated by “post-employment interests.”
Since leaving office Kushner launched a private equity firm, Affinity Partners, which landed a $2 billion investment from a Saudi Arabian wealth fund. The House Oversight Committee is investigating the investment.
