New York Times: Book claims Ivanka Trump told Cohn her father wasn't racist following Charlottesville

"Don't you want to serve your country?" Kushner asked him at the time.

"Mr. President, did you intervene in Jared Kushner's security clearance, and in Ivanka Trump's security clearance?"

In a conversation in August 2017 with Ivanka Trump, the president's eldest daughter and senior adviser, Mr. Cohn was shocked by her reaction to his concerns, according to a new book about Ms. Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner.

The book, which is due out on 19 March, describes Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump as "entitled inheritors of the worst kind" and scolds them for their alleged use of the government in their business dealings.

Both a representative for Kushner and White House officials have dismissed the claims in the book.

Cohn did not end up resigning over that particular incident - he later left as White House economic adviser over a Trump trade policy - but the interaction reportedly changed his view of the Trump children.

Kushner now serves as a member of the White House team in charge of the Trump administration's Middle East peace plan that is expected to be rolled out shortly after Israel's national elections on April 9.

That's according to a new book by the journalist Vicky Ward that was previewed by The New York Times.

'You've got to be insane, ' Cohn is said to have told Kushner.

A spokesperson for attorney Abbe Lowell, who represents Kushner, slammed Ward's book as "fiction rather than any serious attempt to get the facts".
