Trump Considering Son-In-Law Kushner For Chief Of Staff Job — HuffPost

Meadows Drops Out Of Chief Of Staff Consideration

Since the announcement that John Kelly will be leaving the White House early next year, President Donald Trump's search for a new chief of staff has not been going well.

One of the sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Kushner is now not inclined to pursue the position.

"We're interviewing people", he said.

"Our state's vast reserves of energy and minerals can power the nation's economy, creating new jobs, prosperity for Alaskan families and, new revenue at the state and federal level", Dunleavy said in a statement.

"It's possible that this is why this is appearing at this moment in time, especially because what everyone knows you need is someone who has a good relationship with the President", the source said.




But Kushner is happy with the work he is doing.

Jared Kushner, the husband of Trump's daughter Ivanka and already an official White House adviser, met with Trump Wednesday about the job, a top Republican close to the White House told HuffPost.

Stitt was one of 13 newly elected governors to meet with Trump in a meeting that included Vice President Mike Pence and other members of the president's staff and cabinet. But Mr Ayers turned down an offer for the position last weekend because he could not commit to the full two years Mr Trump wanted.

"My time at the White House concluded by meeting with the Ambassador of Trade where I expressed my priority to increase exports of Oklahoma agriculture products and pursue larger worldwide markets as we set our sights on expanding Oklahoma's presence in the global marketplace", Stitt said.

One Trump confidant, who asked to remain unidentified, said Mr Trump should just pick his son-in-law.
