As per the Guardian report, Tillerson also read negative "chatter" about himself in intelligence reports after Kushner "belittled" him to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
In a statement to People magazine, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said, "It's sad, but not surprising, the media would spend time promoting a book based on shady anonymous sources and false information instead of all the incredible work Jared and Ivanka are doing for the country".
White House staffers are said to have chastised Kushner as the "secretary of everything" for his influence in the administration and slammed Ivanka's team as Habi - "home of all bad ideas".
Vicky Ward also alleges that Kushner's spouse Ivanka Trump had interjected in phone conversations between Donald Trump and foreign officials - presumably, in violation of her duty of loyalty. "She thinks she's going to be president of the United States", Cohn told Ward, according to The Guardian.
Kushner now serves as a member of the White House team in charge of the Trump administration's Middle East peace plan that is expected to be rolled out shortly after Israel's national elections on April 9.
Instead of firing Trump's daughter and son-in-law, the book, according to the Times, said Kelly and the President "agreed that they would make life hard enough to force the pair to offer their resignations, which the president would then accept".
Those emails, which have since been made public, make clear that Trump Jr. attended the meeting after being promised dirt on then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and, when told what to expect, replied, "If it's what you say I love it". 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.
During a meeting with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Cohn was reportedly taken aback by Ivanka Trump's defense of her father, according to a New York Times review of a new book about the couple's rise to power within the White House. Correcting everything wrong would take too long and be pointless, ' Peter Mirijanian, the spokesman, said.
