Awkward: Donald Trump’s Son-In-Law Did Not Look Welcome At Canada Trade Talks

Date September 13, 2018

On Tuesday, September 10, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland have met U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer in Washington. The meeting was part of efforts to renegotiate the NAFTA trade agreement that President Donald Trump withdrew support for.

Jared Kushner, son-in-law of the President was also supposed to attend the meeting. However, an embarrassing incident before he gained access to the meeting has him in the news for all the wrong reasons.

Cameras caught Kushner struggling to gain entry to the entrance of the Winder Building where the meeting was going on for a full minute and forty-five seconds. During this time, the press badgered him with questions about NAFTA.

Kushner only smiled back awkwardly and tried to fiddle with the door until it opened. The President’s son-in-law and the presidential aide have been having it rough lately. In July, he told congressional investigators that he did not recall communicating with WikiLeaks. This information, however, proved to be false.

He also failed to disclose email communication between the Trump campaign team and Russian sympathizers including an email sent by Donald Trump Jr. to Kushner about WikiLeaks. In all, Kushner had meetings with over 100 Russian officials in the past and did not disclose any of this information.

Also, it seems Kushner may be working hard to stay on his father-in-law's good side. Some media outlets claim he asked them to only publish nice things about the President.

Many people on social media found the incident hilarious, some even suggesting that the Canadians may have locked Kushner out on purpose. Nevertheless, some others feel that the incident was avoidable.

The North American Free Trade Agreement is an agreement signed by Canada, Mexico, and the United States, creating a trilateral trade bloc in North America. President Donald Trump insists that the agreement does not favor the United States and continues to offer resistance to its existence.
