Jared Kushner in damage control over questioning 2020 vote

US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law has come under pressure over suggesting that the 2020 presidential election might be canceled.

In an interview with Time magazine on Tuesday, White House adviser Jared Kushner imagined various scenarios that could pan out amid the coronavirus pandemic with the 2020 presidential election planned for November, but had to walk back the comments Wednesday.

”That's too far in the future to tell," Kushner said. “Nothing that I'm aware of now, but again, our focus right now is just on getting the country.”

“It’s not my decision to make, so I'm not sure I can commit one way or the other. But right now, that's the plan and again, hopefully, by the time we get to September, October, November, we've done enough work with testing and with all the different things we're trying to do to prevent a future outbreak of the magnitude that would make us shut down again. I really believe that once America opens up, it'll be very hard for America to ever lock down again."

The White House adviser had to walk back his comments later.
