Trump Places Kushner in Charge of Border Wall Construction
President Trump has picked his son-in-law Jared Kushner to oversee the construction of the border wall on the southern border.

According to The Hill:

President Trump has put his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in charge of overseeing the construction of the border wall, The Washington Post reported Monday. 

Current and former administration officials told the Post that Kushner has taken the lead on the wall construction project, holding biweekly meetings covering the progress of the wall, contractor data, the location of the wall and how funding is being used.

Kushner is reportedly pressuring U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to speed up the process of obtaining private land along the U.S.-Mexico border to build the wall.

The president’s son-in-law is reportedly pushing to get 450 miles of barriers along the border finished before the 2020 election. Officials told the Post that more than 800 filings to seize private property need to be made to make that happen.

Government officials have apparently grown frustrated with Kushner's lack of governmental knowledge and his high expectations. This, however, seems like more of a problem with Kushner than the government.
