Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and senior adviser, told President Trump to back Sen. Luther Strange's (R-AL) failed bid for election in part because he believed Strange's victory would "enrage Steve Bannon," according to a report.
The Huffington Post reported Thursday:
According to two sources who work closely with the young real estate tycoon, Kushner suggested the endorsement, in part, because he believed that a Strange victory would enrage Steve Bannon, the newly reinstalled executive chairman of Breitbart News and a nemesis of Kushner's from their time together in the Trump White House.Kushner also thought getting Trump to support Strange would improve his own "tenuous standing with Republican leaders in the Senate," Bannon allies told HuffPost.
"He's going to need them if things go south in the Russia investigation," one ally explained.
