Trump expresses ‘total confidence’ in Kushner

President Donald Trump on Sunday said he had "total confidence" in Jared Kushner, his embattled son-in-law, in a statement published by the New York Times.

“Jared is doing a great job for the country," the president was quoted as saying. "I have total confidence in him. He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programs that will save our country billions of dollars.

"In addition to that, and perhaps more importantly, he is a very good person.”

The statement appeared in an article headlined "Kushner’s relationship with Trump tested as Russia accusations swirl."

Kushner, a vital part of his Trump administration from the git-go, has been under fire because of reports that he attempted — before Trump was sworn in — to establish back-channel connections with Russia that were meant to be obscured from public view. The controversy immediately became just one more part of the ongoing Russia scandals that have plagued Trump’s presidency.
