- Those countries - the United Arab Emirates, Mexico, Israel, and China view Kushner's stature within the Trump administration, his troubled financial dealings, and his lack of government experience as a potential opening for political influence, the newspaper said, citing current and former US officials.
- The revelation comes just days after Kushner's security clearance was downgraded due in part to a federal background check that's been ongoing for more than a year.
