Obama Blasts Kushner for Suggesting That Black Americans Need to 'Want' to be Successful

Watch Now

Former President Barack Obama laid into Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and senior adviser of President Donald Trump, after Kushner implied that the lack of racial equality in the U.S. is due in part to a lack of motivation among African-Americans.

Kushner made the comments during an interview on “Fox & Friends” recently during which he also referred to raising concerns about racial inequality as “complaining” and suggested that those who protested systemic racism over the summer were more interested in “virtue signaling” than solving those issues.

Kushner's tone deaf rhetoric about race and the work ethic of Black Americans have generated a lot of negative feedback and comments.
