New Book Claims Trump Told Kelly to 'Get Rid Of' Ivanka, Kushner

The author tweeted Monday night that she wrote the book "in part to pierce the narrative that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have been moderating influences on the president". Kushner asked him at the time.

The heated exchange - which is described by Vicky Ward in her upcoming book "Kushner, Inc.", an excerpt of which was provided to ABC News ahead of its expected March 19 publication - marks just one example of the many ways Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and senior adviser, and Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter who also serves as a senior adviser, exert their power and privilege in the White House.

Those familiar with the issue told the The New York Times that both Ivanka Trump and Kushner managed to outlast those intentions and that the president's determination for them to leave the White House has "come and gone in waves".

"You've got to be insane", Cohn reportedly scolded Kushner.

Ward reported that White House staffers nicknamed Kushner as the "secretary of everything" and joked Ivanka Trump's team was Habi - 'home of all bad ideas, ' the Guardian reported.

Cohn did not end up resigning over that particular incident - he later left as White House economic adviser over a Trump trade policy - but the interaction reportedly changed his view of the Trump children.

According to Ward's book, Cohn was dismayed with her response.

Ivanka Trump found a work-around by inviting Cabinet-level officials to trips, The Times reported.

"Get rid of my kids; get them back to New York", he allegedly told Kelly in 2017, the New York Times reports, complaining they "didn't know how to play the game".

The book also concerns itself with allegations that Trump is racist.

"Every point that Ms. Ward mentioned in what she called her "fact checking" stage was entirely false", Kushner's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, relayed in a statement. When Rex Tillerson, the former secretary of state, denied her requests, Ivanka Trump and her husband would bring along a Cabinet secretary - such as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin - in order to use the plane, according to the Times. Correcting everything wrong would take too long and be pointless, ' Peter Mirijanian, the spokesman, said.

"All to protect Jared and Ivanka", he told Ward.
