The Jewish couple have kept quiet since president’s defence of antisemitic protesters. Asks a rabbi: ‘Who knows if this is what will set people over the edge?’
Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are facing a potentially awkward reception from Washington’s Jewish community after Donald Trump’s astonishing defence of antisemitic protesters.
The US president’s daughter and son-in-law have been conspicuously silent since his reiterated claim on Tuesday that “both sides” were responsible for last Saturday’s violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left one civil rights activist dead. White supremacists waved insignias from Nazi Germany, abused Kushner and yelled: “Jews will not replace us.”
