Bloomberg reports a must amusing story this morning.
“Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser, wakes up each morning to a growing problem that will not go away. His family’s real estate business, Kushner Cos., owes hundreds of millions of dollars on a 41-story office building on Fifth Avenue. It has failed to secure foreign investors, despite an extensive search, and its resources are more limited than generally understood.”
“As a result, the tower poses a significant challenge to the company. Over the past two years, executives and family members have sought substantial overseas investment from previously undisclosed places: South Korea’s sovereign-wealth fund, France’s richest man, Israeli banks and insurance companies, and exploratory talks with a Saudi developer, according to former and current executives. These were in addition to previously reported attempts to raise money in China and Qatar.”
Recall from earlier this year when Jared Kushner and his real estate partners wanted to take advantage of a federal program in 2015 that would save them millions of dollars as they built an opulent, 50-story residential tower in this city’s booming waterfront district, just across the Hudson River from Lower Manhattan.
Recall there was just one problem: The program was designed to benefit projects in poor, job-starved areas.
Yeah, cry me a river for the corrupt Kushner Family.

Do you mean his sister trying to “facilitate” Chinese visas didn’t pull Jared’s chestnuts out of the fire???? http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/05/06/jared_kushner_s_sister_tries_to_woo_chinese_investors_with_u_s_visa_promises.html
