This is a big promise for someone who only had 18 people show up to a rally…
Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) announced his first actions as president, if elected in 2020, would be firing Jared Kushner.
Swalwell, whose campaign has failed to register in most polls, made the comment to the New York Times.
“Israel is a country that needs to work with the Palestinian people to find a two-state solution,” Swalwell said. “I support putting the U.S. back into the U.N. Commission on Human Rights.”
“I support increasing aid to the Palestinian people, and I’m going to fire Jared Kushner on day one, because he has no business being on the job of seeking a two-state solution or finding peace in the Middle East,” the Democrat continued. “It requires serious scholars and a serious leader committed to making it happen.”
Kushner serves as senior adviser to the White House. Among other responsibilities, he has been tasked with developing a peace plan between Israel and Palestine since joining the administration.
Swalwell will have a hard time firing Kushner given that he acts at his own discretion because he was named to the position by President Trump. But first he has to become president.
