Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of former President Donald Trump, is expected to release a memoir in August about his tenure as a senior White House adviser.
Kushner, husband of former first daughter Ivanka Trump, will be the first family member to publish a book about working in the White House. Its publisher, Broadside Books, described the book on Monday as an insider’s take on Trump’s rise to power and his four years in office.
“His memoir is his account of the most stunning presidential campaigns in history, Russia’s high-stakes impeachment inquiry and trial, and the existential crises of the COVID-19 pandemic. Kushner reveals what really happened inside Trump’s White House – not to settle scores, but to give a true insider’s account of the story,” wrote his editor, an imprint of HarperCollins focused on conservative non-fiction, in an ad.
The book, titled “Breaking History: A White House Memoir,” is due out August 9.
“It takes readers into Oval Office debates, battles at the United Nations, meetings in Arab palaces and high-stakes negotiations in Israel, North Korea, China, Mexico and beyond,” continues the press release.
Kushner had no involvement in politics or government before joining his father-in-law’s campaign, but he became one of Trump’s most powerful advisers. Despite this, he maintained an elusive presence in the White House, having no social media account and refusing nearly all interviews. He was so rarely heard of that the mystery of what his voice sounded became fodder for comedy.
Kushner, who now heads global investment firm Affinity Partners, spoke in March with the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. According to one of the panel members, Rep. Elaine Luria (D-Va.), he appeared before the committee voluntarily and provided “really valuable” information during his more than six hours of testimony.
His memoir follows several others published by Trump administration insiders, including headlines by former President John Bolton’s former national security adviser, former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen and the Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
