The son-in-law of the elected US president, who has roots in the Belarusian town of Navahradak, plans to give up his duties as the chief executive officer in his family business.

The son-in-law of the elected US president Donald Trump Jared Kushner is to become the Senior Adviser at the White House.

This has been reported by Bloomberg (translated by RBK) with a reference to the source, closely familiar with the situation. Kushner plans to give up his duties as the chief executive officer in his family business for an opportunity to work in the Government, stated in the e-mail sent to the agency by lawyer of the law company Wilmerhale Jamie Goreliсk.

Thus, Kushner will “divest from his various business assets to comply with conflict-of-interest rules”, Mrs. Goreliсk said.

Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump, residents of New York, recently bought a house in Washington. Jared is a son of developer Charles Kushner.

We remind, relatives of Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner come from Navahradak. The Kushner family managed to rescue during the war due to their escape from the ghetto and the guerrilla squad of Bielski brothers.

Jared Kushner revealed the Belarusian history of his ancestors in public in the pre-electoral summer in an article, published by his newspaper New York Observer.
