Pelosi just went there and insulted the smartest man in the Trump White House leadership team.
Kushner is playing pivotal role in mideast Israel peace process, Iran sanctions policy, weapons sales to Saudi regime, lobbying Sweden for release of rapper A$AP Rocky... among other projects.

Source seems to be liberal socialist progressive type but report checks out as non-fakenews:


Pelosi Refers to Jared Kushner as a Baltimore “Slumlord”

BY Todd Neikirk August 2, 2019

Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi referred to the adviser to the President when she was asked a question about Trump’s Elijah Cummings comments. According to Pelosi, Kushner would know a lot about Baltimore as he is a slumlord there.

The Speaker told reporters, “The president — this comes as no surprise — really doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Maybe you could ask his son-in-law, who’s a slumlord there, if he wants to talk about rodent infestations.


Pelosi is alluding to a report published by Pro Publica and The New York Times about Kushner’s 20,000 Baltimore apartments. The buildings have been subject to a number of health code violations. Ironically, many of the building’s complaints concern rat and rodent infestations.

At the time of the violations Baltimore County said, “We expect all landlords to comply with the code requirements that protect the health and safety of their tenants — even if the landlord’s father-in-law is President of the United States.”

The Kushner corporation was quick to deny the claims and painted their buildings as high end. The company released a statement claiming they are “proud to own thousands of apartments in the Baltimore area. [They are a] high quality residential experience.”
Neither Jared Kushner or Donald Trump have responded to the comments from Pelosi.

Unfortunately this is not the first time senior WH leadership has been disrespected, there has been a series of attacks that crossed the line.

I wonder how many "people of color" live in her community.

Elitists like her and others with that kind of mindset are like this meme.
