Publisher's Summary

Jared Kushner was one of the most consequential presidential advisers in modern history. For the first time, he recounts what happened behind closed doors during the Trump presidency.

Few White House advisors have had such an expansive portfolio or constant access to the president. From his office next to Trump, senior adviser Jared Kushner operated quietly behind the scenes, preferring to leave the turf wars and television sparring to others.

Now, Kushner finally tells his story—a fast-paced and surprisingly candid account of how an earnest businessman with no political ambitions found himself pulled into a presidency that no one saw coming.

Breaking History takes listeners inside debates in the Oval Office, double-crosses at the United Nations, tense meetings in Arab palaces, high-stakes negotiations, and the daily barrage of leaks, false allegations, investigations, and West Wing infighting.

A true historical thriller, this book is not your typical political memoir. Kushner details Washington’s intense resistance to change and reveals how he broke through the stalemates of the past. An outsider among outsiders, Kushner was a results-driven executive among beltway power brokers. He questioned old assumptions and delivered unprecedented results on trade, criminal justice reform, production of COVID-19 vaccines, and Middle East peace. His successful negotiation of the Abraham Accords, the most significant diplomatic breakthrough in 50 years, earned him a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Written by one of the few people by Trump’s side from his trip down the golden escalator to his final departure from Andrews Air Force Base, Breaking History provides the most honest, nuanced, and definitive understanding of a presidency that will be studied for generations.

Was Kushner really America first.

This entire book is about promoting one place in particular in the Middle East, I don’t understand.

Can you imagine if Jared put all of this effort into issues located in America. He clearly has talent but was invisible when it came to election integrity, Jan 6, the one sided abuse of judicial power within the US admin that crippled everything they did.

He spends chapters bashing the most prolific America First pundits, Steve Bannon and Peter Navarro. He praises Kissinger and recently stated he hopes to live forever via mRNA technology (which he sure helped move along with warp speed). Something stinks.

Inside look into Trump's Presidency.

A deeply interesting, non-rambling first person insight into all the things we only heard about 3 hand during the 1st Trump term..

In one word: Brilliant!

A fascinating read for any student of modern history.

I always knew there was a clear attack vector behind every tweet that Trump sent out during the Presidency… this story gives the context to some of those famous tweets.

Highly recommend it!

No one can take those accomplishments away

The New York Times called this book a soulless and very selective memoir. Whilst it may be selective I certainly didn’t find it soulless. Irrespective of this review and others out there you cannot deny the good things the Trump administration achieved. Lowest unemployment in 50 years (pre pandemic), record high wages, trade agreements, criminal justice reform, Middle East peace deal and many more. Jared sums it up perfectly, “no one can take those accomplishments away”.
