The House Minority Leader told reporters falsely that President Trump’s son-in-law and daughter were on the White House payroll on Thursday.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) falsely claimed on Thursday that President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, are on the White House payroll during her weekly press conference.
A reporter asked Pelosi whether Kushner should still have a job in the White House given revelations about Kushner’s multiple undocumented meetings with individuals that have ties to the Russian government.
“The receptivity of the American people for such unusual behavior in the White House is interesting,” Pelosi remarked. “If you combined the arrogance, [for] one, of just saying I’m going to be surrounded by family and they are going to be on the payroll, and they are going to have security clearance, which is a big validation clearly not justified.”
ABC News’ congressional correspondent John Parkinson quickly pointed out that Pelosi’s claim was false. Parkinson tweeted:
Fact Check: Pelosi contends Jared Kushner on WH payroll, but recent WH disclosures show he & Ivanka aren't taking salary, as promised.
