History will never know Trump grants clemency to more than 100 people, including Bannon MORE in a new ad, dubbing him the “secretary of failure.” 

The ad released Wednesday criticizes Kushner over his role in the administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

“This pampered princeling has never met a problem he couldn’t f--- up,” the narrator states. 


“If you've ever wondered if this president took COVID-19 seriously, look no further than who he put in charge of protecting America's health,” the narrator adds. “Jared Kushner, Trump's secretary of failure.” 

Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, said Kushner is “beyond evil.” 

“Jared Kushner doesn’t care about your life or mine,” Galen said in a statement. “He thought the pandemic was just another political prop — and now we’re all suffering."

The Lincoln Project has released numerous ads slamming the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The group is run by Republicans opposed to Trump, including George ConwayGeorge ConwayGeorge Conway: Trump's 'influence will wane as he fades into history as a pariah' George Conway: Georgia call shows Trump is 'delusional,' 'desperate' George Conway calls Meadows a 'moron' and a 'disgrace' MORE, the Washington, D.C., lawyer married to White House counselor Kellyanne ConwayKellyanne Elizabeth ConwayGeorge Conway: Trump's 'influence will wane as he fades into history as a pariah' Pence's relationship with Trump fractures in final days Kellyanne Conway condemns violence, supports Trump in statement on Capitol riots MORE.

The coronavirus has infected more than 4.8 million people in the U.S. and has killed 158,171 people, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

The White House deferred questions about the ad to the Trump campaign. 


A spokesperson for the campaign responded with a statement they have issued before slamming the The Lincoln Project. 

“This is the swamp – yet again – trying to take down the duly elected President of the United States," campaign spokesperson Erin Perrine said in the statement. "President Trump is the leader of a united Republican Party where he has earned 94% of Republican votes during the primaries – something any former president of any party could only dream of.”
