The first explosive audiobook about Javanka and their infamous rise to power.
Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are the self-styled prince and princess of America. Their swift, gilded rise to extraordinary power in Donald Trump’s White House is unprecedented, unconstitutional, and dangerous. In Kushner, Inc., investigative journalist Vicky Ward digs beneath the myth the couple has created that depicts themselves as the voices of reason in an otherwise crazy presidency and reveals that Jared and Ivanka are not just the president’s chief enablers, they are, like him, disdainful of rules, of laws, and of ethics. They are entitled inheritors of the worst kind; their combination of ignorance, arrogance, and an insatiable lust for power has caused havoc all over the world and threatens the democracy of the United States.
Ward follows their trajectory from New Jersey and New York City to the White House, where the couple’s many forays into policy making and national security have mocked long-standing US policy and protocol. They have pursued a personal agenda that is making them very rich while their actions have mostly gone unchecked. In Kushner, Inc., Ward holds Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump accountable: She unveils the couple’s secret self-serving transactional motivations and how those have propelled them into the highest levels of the US government where no one, the president included, has been able to stop them.

Interessante Story, schlechte Sprecherin
Die Story Ivanka Trumps und Jared Kushners ist grundsätzlich interessant, hier aber nur sehr oberflächlich behandelt . Leser bspw. der Washington Post kennen das meiste bereits. Mehr Hintergrund über die beiden wäre wünschenswert gewesen. Man merkt, dass das Buch in grosser Eile geschrieben wurde. Die Sprecherin ist leider sehr schlecht. Sie spricht monoton und gekünstelt. Namen werden teilweise durchgehend falsch ausgesprochen. Ärgerlich.

breathtaking and sobering
Although I have read and heard a lot of what the book tells us about Javanka, I couldn't stop listening since Ward presents it all pretty breath-taking in the bigger context of both their father's dubious histories.
Fiona Hardingham is excellent in presenting the story.
Javanka's ignorance and superficiality, combined with stunning ignorance, arrogance and insatiable greediness is quite horrendous when considering what could happen out of that combination not only to the USA, but also to the rest of the world. The example of Quatar tells it all.
After finishing the book I very much hope for retributive justice, albeit knowing that people of that calibre almost always get away with violating the law as well as moral and ethical rules.
Nonetheless, I very much recommend this sobering book to everyone interested in US policy and Trumpism.
