Donald Trump has been excessively vocal about clamping down on immigration, and his ‘America First’ agenda.

It’s curious, then, that his son-in-law’s company is pandering to Chinese investors in order to obtain financing for projects that will line Jared Kushner’s pockets.

Last Saturday afternoon, Jared Kushner’s company exploited presidential influence to trade visas and citizenship for financing of a Jersey City development with Chinese investors in Beijing. 

Specifically, deals were sought with Chinese nationals through the U.S. government’s EB-5 program, which gives wealthy foreign investors a path to citizenship in exchange for large investments.

Let’s boil this down: If you’re a foreigner, and if you give enough money to the president’s family, you can become an American citizen.

Do Syrian refugees know about this deal? Perhaps they could cobble together the millions required by the Trump Administration.

America first?

Hardly.
