Jared Kushner in the White House.

Jared Kushner wrote in his book that he was treated for thyroid cancer while at the White House.
Peter Navarro said he never saw signs of pain in Kushner and suggested that he made it up.
Most thyroid cancers don’t show early on in the disease. Navarro is also no friend of Kushner’s.

Peter Navarro, the former White House trade advisor, suggested that Jared Kushner faked a claim that he had cancer to help sell copies of his forthcoming memoir.

Trump’s son-in-law wrote in his book, “Breaking History: A White House Memoir,” that he was diagnosed and treated for thyroid cancer while he was working in the White House as a senior advisor, The New York Times reported.

According to the book, Kushner was diagnosed in October 2019 and sought to hide the illness from Trump, though the then-president eventually found out. 

Navarro was asked in a Thursday night interview with Newsmax, shared by Mediaite, why Kushner would have hidden his diagnosis from Trump.

Navarro said in response: “That thyroid thing, that came out of nowhere. I saw the guy every day. There’s no sign that he was in any pain or danger or whatever. I think it’s just sympathy to try to sell his book now.”

Navarro has repeatedly criticized Kushner in the past, an example of one of the many feuds among those in Trump’s orbit.

According to the Mayo Clinic and Britain’s National Health Service, thyroid cancers can cause swelling and pain in the neck, a sore throat, and difficulty swallowing, but often don’t show obvious signs or symptoms early in the disease. Kushner said his cancer was caught early, The Times reported.

Navarro went on to call Kushner a “one-man wrecking crew” whose “only qualification was that he was the boss’s son-in-law.”
