Jared Kushner Mocked For Giving Speech At U.S. Embassy Opening In Jerusalem, Still Lacks Security Clearance

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and special advisor Jared Kushner was mocked on Twitter for being chosen to give a speech at the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem because he still lacks a security clearance (video below).

The Guardian notes that 41 Palestinian protesters were killed in Gaza while protesting the opening of the new embassy. Kushner made a passing reference to those killed as “part of the problem”:

As we have seen from the protests of the last month and even today, those provoking violence are part of the problem and not part of the solution.

AlterNet reports that the White House edited out Kushner calling the Palestinian protesters “part of the problem” in the official transcript.
