Kellyanne Conway points fingers at Jared Kushner for 2020 ‘debacle of a campaign’

The chasm between former Trump White House adviser Kellyanne Conway and the former president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner got bigger this week, as Conway placed, in no uncertain terms, the blame for the 2020 campaign “debacle” on the slick shoulders of Ivanka Trump’s husband.

As reports circulate of Jared Kushner’s claim that he is done with politics, Conway told the Washington Times that his announcement is a “convenient way of saying, ‘Don’t hold me responsible for all the authority I gave myself.'”

“It’s become incredibly convenient for Jared to not be given responsibility for that 2020 debacle of a campaign, to not take responsibility for, frankly, not being there for his father-in-law now the way that he insisted on being there for five straight years until things didn’t really work out,” said the woman who successfully led Trump’s 2016 historic campaign.

“There’s nobody who’s profited more handsomely from Donald Trump’s presidency than Jared Kushner,” she stated, in what was apparently a reference to the $2 billion investment in Kushner’s post-government service private equity firm from the Saudi government.

Conway’s animosity towards Kushner has been on full display over the last few months.

In May, as she was promoting her memoir, “Here’s the Deal,” Conway accused Kushner along with other members of Trump’s inner circle of turning the MAGA King against her, BizPac Review reported.

Trump took to Truth Social and dismissed claims Conway made in her book that she had flat-out told him that he’d lost the 2020 elections.

“Kellyanne Conway never told me that she thought we lost the election,” he posted. “If she had I wouldn’t have dealt with her any longer — she would have been wrong — could go back to her crazy husband.”

“Writing in books can make people say some very strange things,” he continued. “I wonder why?”

Responding to the critique in real-time on an episode of “The Interview” podcast, Conway said, “I was given a statement last night that he was going to put out — a beautiful statement about the book and our relationship and how hard we had worked together. So somebody worked overtime between last evening and this morning to have him put that statement out.”

“I think that people have their own interests at hand,” she stated, “including the same people who say privately that Donald Trump lost. And I would love to see his 2020 campaign team out there. I would love to hear from Brad Parscale and Jared Kushner and Tony Fabrizio, John McLaughlin, a whole bunch of them — Bill Stepien.”

“I’d like them to go on the record,” she continued. “I never see them anywhere talking about the 2020 election. So that’s very fascinating. Some of them even say they’re out of politics now. But I saw a beautiful statement [from Trump] that was going to come out some time between last night and this morning, that did not, about the book.”

Speaking to the Washington Times, Conway predicted that Trump would be “unstoppable” if he chooses to run in 2024 — even if his opponent is the wildly popular governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis.

“He obviously is highly favored by donors and grassroots,” Conway said of Trump’s most formidable opponent. “But I will say this: I love the donors. They’re very successful people in life. They’re often wrong about who’s next.”

“People say, ‘I want DeSantis,’ and they don’t know him that well,” she said.

Contrast that with former President Trump, who Conway says is “frustrated” with President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

Trump, she argues, could launch an entire campaign around the message, “I can do it because I already did it.”

“People understood exactly why he was running [in 2016] and what they would get,” Conway stated. “A combination of vintage Trump with those amazing accomplishments in 2020, he can be unstoppable in 2024.”
