While working as a consultant to then-President Donald Trump, Jared Kushner underwent surgery for thyroid cancer and made an effort to keep his condition a secret from him, Kushner says in a new book.
Kushner stated in an excerpt from “Breaking History: A White House Memoir,” which the New York Post published on Monday, that he received the diagnosis in October 2019 while participating in trade talks with China.
As the trade negotiations with China moved forward, Kushner said, “I had to face an unanticipated and frightening personal crisis.” “White House doctor Sean Conley called me into the medical cabin on Air Force One the morning I left for Texas to attend the opening of a Louis Vuitton factory. He said, “Your test results are back from Walter Reed.” “It appears that you have cancer.” We must arrange for surgery right away.
In his letter, he stated, “I didn’t notify anyone at the White House, even the president.
But Trump soon learned about it when he inquired of Kushner in private the day of his procedure: “Are you scared about the surgery?” Kushner composed.
How did you learn about it? Kushner claims he inquired.

According to the book, Trump responded, “I’m the president.” “I am well informed.”
Kushner expressed his gratitude for the early detection of cancer in a letter to doctors after a significant portion of his thyroid was removed.
Kushner and Ivanka Trump, who both worked for Trump as key advisers, reportedly assisted in executing the former president’s desperate plan to hold onto power after the 2020 election. They admitted they knew Trump’s claims were false in testimony to the House Committee on January 6 but still supported him.
