A new book set for release on March 19th reveals that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump clashed with multiple senior White House officials, who were concerned the couple mixed their government work and personal interests and lacked proper expertise for the work they were trying to do, reports The Guardian. "Ambition. Corruption. The Extraordinary Story of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump" is sourced from interviews with over 200 people.
But Ivanka and Jared, both senior advisers to the president, have outlasted any attempts to force them out of Washington, and Ward writes that Trump's desire to have them gone fluctuates.
"Get rid of my kids; get them back to New York", Trump allegedly told Kelly.
In the book "Kushner Inc".
After Kelly advised Trump it would be too hard to fire them, the pair allegedly settled on making Ivanka and Jared's lives in the West Wing hard so they would want to resign.
The book, "Kushner Inc.", written by journalist Vicky Ward, said the first daughter's comments were made during a conversation with Gary Cohn, the administration's then-top economic adviser who was on the brink of resigning in the days following the President's response to the tragedy in Charlottesville, according to the Times. When Rex Tillerson, the former secretary of state, denied her requests, Ivanka Trump and her husband would bring along a Cabinet secretary - such as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin - in order to use the plane, according to the Times.More news: Israeli authorities to reopen Al-Aqsa Mosque compound

Both children now serve as advisers to Trump, and Kushner has been tasked with diplomacy in the Middle East, while Ivanka Trump has focused on advancing paid family leave policies.
The book discusses the upbringings of both Ivanka Trump and Kushner and the initial skepticism by the parents on both sides, mostly for religious reasons, about their marriage, according to The Times.
Ward reported that White House staffers nicknamed Kushner as the "secretary of everything" and joked Ivanka Trump's team was Habi - 'home of all bad ideas, ' the Guardian reported.
In an unprecedented statement, Melania's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham referenced Ricardel and said "it is the position of the Office of the First Lady that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House".
Ricardel later left the White House to "transition to a new role within the administration", according to the White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
"Every point that Ms. Ward mentioned in what she called her "fact checking" stage was entirely false", the spokesman Peter Mirijanian said.
