Jared Kushner on voting during the COVID pandemic
As controversy swirls around U.S. President Trump's attacks on mail-in voting amid a pandemic, his senior advisor tells Ian Bremmer: "If it's safe to go the supermarket... then it should be safe to go out and vote."
In the latest episode of GZERO World, Jared Kushner discusses the recent diplomatic breakthrough between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, pandemic response in the U.S., and the upcoming presidential election.
In this preview clip, Ian asks Kushner about safety at the polls, while Kushner stokes fears that vote-by-mail initiatives could lead to fraud — even if millions of Americans would rather mail in their ballots to stay safe from the coronavirus.
The episode begins airing Friday, August 21, on U.S. public television channels. Check local listings.
