He was a senior adviser to Mr Trump as the US President, but revelations about potential conflicts of interest have affected his position in the White House.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Mr Kushner’s clearance was downgraded from the “Top Secret/SCI” level to the “Secret” level.
Advisers reveal how negative headlines cause the President to lose his cool especially in the evenings and early mornings when he is the most isolated.
Mr Trump reportedly raged for hours after a photo emerged of Attorney-General Jeff Sessions having dinner with Deputy Attorney-General Rod J Rosenstein, who oversees the Russia investigation. He was apparently still angry about it the next morning, seeing it as a sign of disloyalty.
The President used the event to make a number of his quips which made fun of the atmosphere in the West Wing after a chaotic week, with staff departures and rumours of more to come.
“It’s been really another calm week at the White House,” he said. “We finally have it running like a finetuned machine. We were late tonight because Jared could not get through security.”
Despite the chaotic week and high staff turnover Mr Trump cracked a joke at his own expense even bringing his wife into it.
“So many people have been leaving the White House. It’s invigorating since you want turnover. I like chaos. It really is good. Who’s going to be the next to leave? Steve Miller, or Melania?”
Mr Trump joked it was terrible then turned to his wife and asked if she loved him.
“I won’t tell you what she said,” he said.
“She said, ‘Behave.’”
Mr Trump also had words of praise for the news media, calling the crowd “quality people”.
Just hours before, Mr Trump tweeted that “Mainstream Media in US is being mocked all over the world. They’ve gone CRAZY!”
Before the crowd made up of Washington’s media elite, bureau chiefs and White House reporters, he said: “I do want to say this is one of the best times I can ever remember having with the media. This might be the most fun I have had since watching your faces on election night.”
