  • White House advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump reportedly received a blessing from a rabbi who previously compared black people to monkeys

"As Israel turns 70, the seek for an enduring peace turns over a brand new leaf: one among realism and of not being afraid to face strongly with our allies for what is sweet, for what is true, and for what's true", Kushner stated Monday. Instead, it was his daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, who willingly received a blessing from a rabbi who has made no secret of his disrespect for Black people, according to reports. Yet Yousef's presence raised eyebrows: back in March, the Rabbi reportedly used the term "kushi" (a derogatory Hebrew word for an African-American person) in a sermon, and drew a comparison to monkeys. "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", he said from behind a podium. Now, the president couldn't be there himself, because, you know, the angry people.

US President's daughter Ivanka Trump (R) and her husband Senior White House Advisor Jared Kushner (L) arrive for the controversial inauguration of the US embassy in Jerusalem on May 14, 2018.

It's not the first time that Yosef has attracted criticism for his comments with a history of questionable remarks.

They landed in Israel Sunday morning ahead of the US Embassy opening in the capital.




Seth Meyers, the host of Late Night, also discussed the embassy opening, and Kushner's speech during Monday's ceremony. The White House delegation is led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's deputy John Sullivan, and attendees include Kushner, Ivanka Trump and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

In a 2017 interview, Ward said that both Kushner and Trump have been running their own agenda since Donald Trump took office, says Page Six.

'Great to join the friends of Zion for an incredible evening commemorating the dedication of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, Israel, ' she wrote.
