President Trump has put his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in charge of overseeing the construction of the border wall, The Washington Post reported Monday.
Current and former administration officials told the Post that Kushner has taken the lead on the wall construction project, holding biweekly meetings covering the progress of the wall, contractor data, the location of the wall and how funding is being used.
Kushner is reportedly pressuring U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to speed up the process of obtaining private land along the U.S.-Mexico border to build the wall.
The president’s son-in-law is reportedly pushing to get 450 miles of barriers along the border finished before the 2020 election.https://thehill.com/homenews/administra ... nstructionWhat does Ivanka Trump do?
Ianka Trump became a full-time adviser to the President in March 2017 after informally advising her father, Donald Trump, during the first two months of his administration.
Recently, Ivanka Trump was instrumental in the administration's Women's Global Development and Prosperity (WDGP) initiative, which the President launched last month. She led the creation of the initiative, which has three pillars: education, promoting entrepreneurship and eliminating legal, regulatory, and cultural barriers to women's economic participation. The fund starts with an initial $50 million from USAID with the goal to empower 50 million women in developing countries by 2025.
She also helped roll out a more than $1 billion initiative with the World Bank in 2017 aimed at promoting women's entrepreneurship in developing countries. When World Bank President Jim Yong Kim stepped down, she was tasked with choosing his replacement.
She previously worked on the administration's push for tax reform, meeting with lawmakers and advocating for the child tax credit. Moving forward, she's making a push for paid family leave with lawmakers, holding meetings with Republican lawmakers and private sector leaders.
She has also supported her husband's efforts on criminal justice reform.https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/06/politics ... index.html
