Swalwell Forgets Kushner Won’t Still Be in WH if He’s President and Gives Bizarre ‘Day One’ Promise

2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) gave a bizarre promise for his first day in office should he win the White House over President Donald Trump.

In an interview with the New York Times, Swalwell was asked if he believed Israel met “international standards of human rights,” to which he responded that he supported finding a “two-state solution” between Israel and Palestine.

He also announced that he would “fire” the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, on “day one” of his presidency should he win the White House:

“Israel is a country that needs to work with the Palestinian people to find a two-state solution. I support putting the U.S. back into the U.N. Commission on Human Rights. I support increasing aid to the Palestinian people, and I’m going to fire Jared Kushner on day one because he has no business being on the job of seeking a two-state solution or finding peace in the Middle East. It requires serious scholars and a serious leader committed to making it happen.”

Swalwell — whose abysmal polling numbers illustrate he is far from securing the Democratic presidential nomination, let alone the presidency — faces an issue with his promise, however: It is incredibly unlikely that Kushner would stick around in the White House if Trump lost in 2020.

A good example is that of former President Barack Obama‘s former adviser, Valerie Jarrett, leaving her position before Trump had the chance to fire her.

The California Democrat is one of 23 vying for the right to take on Trump as the Democratic presidential nominee in 2020 and has made gun control a central tenet of his campaign.

As IJR Red previously reported, Swalwell kicked off his presidential campaign with a promise to implement a mandatory buyback program of “military-style” semi-automatic firearms and actually said he would imprison gun owners who refused to comply with the plan.

I can’t decide who is dumber, Swalwell or Beto.


Swalwell is a perfect example of how even being near AOC causes brain damage!


Guess he hates Kushner because he is taller and bigger than swalwell!

And who is this person from CA? Besides being a DemonRat, he wants to be POTUS while his home state is in shambles. What did I read the other day, CA was becoming the first third world state, meanwhile Waters, Pelosi living the high life while their state and other DemonRat states are in shambles.
