“Look, he’s entitled to his opinion, but a lot of the work that the president’s had me doing over the last three years has actually been cleaning up the messes that Vice President Biden left behind,” Kushner responded in an interview with Israel’s Channel 13 News published by Axios.

“Look, he has his opinion. I think President Trump’s entitled to pick his team, and we’ve worked with him for a long time, and I think we’ve done a good job of trying to help him be successful," he added.

Kushner also ripped Biden for “harsh laws that were created and partially written by Vice President Biden over 20 years ago, which put a lot of African Americans in prison and really destroyed a generation and did a lot of harm to our country.”

Biden in his interview broadcast Sunday had taken aim at President Trump for allowing his daughter and son-in-law to serve in senior advisory roles in the White House, something they have done on an unpaid basis since early in his tenure.

“If I get elected president, my children are not going to have offices in the White House. My children are not going to sit in on Cabinet meetings,” Biden said on "60 Minutes."

“It’s just simply improper because you should make it clear to the American public that everything you’re doing is for them," he continued. "And the idea that you’re going to have his children, his son-in-law, etc., engaged in the day-to-day operation of things they know nothing about.”

“You don’t think that Jared Kushner should be negotiating a Middle East peace solution?” asked host Norah O’Donnell.

Biden laughed, “No, I don’t … What credentials does he bring to that?”
