Jared Kushner’s sister highlights family’s Holocaust survivor past in sales pitch in China

Jared Kushner’s sister, Nicole Mayer, highlights her family’s Holocaust survivor past and connection to the son-in-law and senior adviser to US President Donald Trump during a real estate sales pitch to Chinese investors.

Kushner Companies is working to attract $150 million in financing for a housing development in New Jersey through the EB-5 government program, that awards foreign investors a Green Card in exchange for investments of at least $500,000 in American development projects that create a minimum of 10 American jobs. The controversial program has been called “U.S. citizenship for sale,” according to the New York Times.

Meyer tells more than a 100 Chinese investors that the project “means a lot to me and my entire family,” mentioning specifically that her brother formerly headed the family business and left to serve in the Trump Administration.

According to the report, Meyer talked about how family values had shaped Kushner Companies and spoke about her grandparents, who survived the Holocaust. She also spoke about her father, Charles Kushner, the company founder who spent time in prison for illegal campaign donations, tax evasion and witness tampering.
