Jared Kushner’s Trump White House memoir to hit shelves in August

Jared Kushner’s White House memoir will be hitting the shelves in August, detailing insider information from various meetings and negotiations at the White House, United Nations and countries across the globe. 

The book from former President Donald Trump’s son in law, titled “Breaking History: A White House Memoir” is scheduled to be released on Aug. 8, Axios first reported, citing the publisher Broadside Books – a conservative imprint of Harper Collins. 

Kushner’s writing will take readers “inside debates in the Oval Office, battles at the United Nations, meetings in Arab palaces, and intense negotiations in North Korea, China, Mexico,” the publisher said. 

His account looks back on “negotiating the largest trade deal in American history, passing bipartisan criminal justice reform, and achieving several of the most significant breakthroughs in diplomacy in the last fifty years: the peace deals known as the Abraham Accords.”

Kushner was heavily involved in the negotiations that led to the peace deal with four Arab nations signing with Israel. While working with the administration, Kushner also was involved in Operation Warp Speed – the Trump administration’s expedited efforts to produce vaccines to fight COVID-19 – as well as criminal justice reform. 

The book will reportedly also include stories regarding the 2016 presidential campaign, former President Donald Trump’s impeachment and Russia investigation, as well as the coronavirus pandemic. 

Kushner scored the book deal in June 2021, with the publisher saying the former White House advisers played an important role “in the administration’s most significant accomplishments.”

At the time, Broadside Books said the book would be a “thorough recounting of the administration – and the truth about what happened behind closed doors.” 

Kushner, who now runs global investment fund firm Affinity Partners, has made headlines in recent weeks over a Saudi Arabian investment he received as well as his cooperation with the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot. 

In early April, a New York Times report revealed Kushner received a $2 billion investment from Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund — with expected annual management fees of $25 million – in a deal made shortly following the end of the Trump administration.

The report revealed a Saudi Public Investment Fund review panel had concerns about the deal, due to “inexperience” with a due diligence review saying it was “unsatisfactory in all aspects.” 

Kushner testified before the Jan. 6 panel just weeks before the report emerged.
