Jared Kushner defended his business dealings with Saudi Arabia after leaving government service.

Kushner said, “If you ask me about the work that that we did in the White House, for my critics, what I say is point to a single decision we made that wasn’t in the interest of America.”

He received a $2 billion investment from the Saudi sovereign wealth fund for his new private equity firm, drawing scrutiny over potential conflicts of interest.

Kushner maintained he followed all ethics rules and dismissed notions of impropriety.

He praised the Saudi fund as a prestigious investor and the Saudi crown prince as a visionary reformer, refusing to say he believed intelligence reports implicating the prince in Jamal Khashoggi’s killing.

“I know the person who I dealt with. I think he’s a visionary leader. I think what he’s done in that region is transformational,” celebrated the former Trump advisor.

“I understand why people, you know, are upset about that. I think that what happened there was absolutely horrific. But again, our job was to represent America, and to try to push forward things in America,” explained Kushner.

Kushner stood by Trump-era policies toward Saudi Arabia and said representing American interests was their top priority.
