Former top Trump aide Jared Kushner plans to release his new book, described as “honest and nuanced,” in August, according to publisher Broadside Books.
Kushner, who is married to former President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka, has been working on Breaking History: A White House Memoir for months. It is the latest from a top Trump aide and will likely counter much of the anti-Trump spin in media-written books.
Kushner, whose office was next to the Oval Office, took the lead on several projects for the former president, including the fight against COVID-19, the path to the Abraham Accords Middle East peace deal, multiple trade agreements, and the push to bring the 2026 World Cup to Los Angeles.
“His memoir is his account of the most astonishing presidential campaigns in history, the high-stakes Russia investigation and impeachment trial, and the existential crises of the COVID-19 pandemic. Kushner reveals what really happened inside the Trump White House — not to settle scores, but to give a true insider account of history," said the publisher, part of HarperCollins. "He takes readers inside debates in the Oval Office, battles at the United Nations, meetings in Arab palaces, and high-stakes negotiations in Israel, North Korea, China, Mexico, and beyond."
The publisher added, "In Breaking History, Kushner provides an honest and nuanced look at one of the most consequential presidencies in recent times. From his office next to the president, senior adviser Jared Kushner operated quietly behind the scenes, preferring to leave the turf wars and television sparring to others as he focused on advancing high-impact goals that experts dismissed as impossible."
His book is due out on Aug. 9.
Ivanka Trump is also planning to pen a book about her experiences inside the White House.
