(ANSA) – ROME, JUL 30 – In a new book entitled ‘Breaking History: A White House Memoir’, Jared Kushner lashes out against Steve Bannon, calling him a “toxic” presence in the White House. In the book, which will be published next month, and of which CNN has published some advances, Donald Trump’s son-in-law tells of the clashes he had with the former strategist who often accused him of “undermining the president’s agenda”, threatening to “break him in two” if Kushner turned his back on him.
The detailed account of the memoir provides new insight into the poisonous climate that reigned in the White House during the term of the former US president. Just as Trump prepares for the 2024 election campaign, excerpts from the book reveal how his team’s closest associates at the time have turned fiercely against each other since the administration’s early days and how distrust and resentment influenced every aspect of his government.
The tycoon’s son-in-law writes that Bannon once threatened him after Gary Cohn, a seasoned economic advisor, informed him that the former strategist was leaking negative information about him. “Steve, you have to stop (…)”, Kushner told him. “We are trying to build a team”. “Jared, at this moment, you are undermining the president’s agenda”, Bannon would have replied, raising his voice and threatening him immediately after: “If you turn against me, I’ll break you in two”.
