REPORT: Trump Regrets Taking Son in Law Jared Kushner's Advice

On Wednesday, Axios dropped a report where three White House sources stated that President Donald Trump is regretting his decision to listen to his son in law Jared Kushner's policy advice.
According to one source, the President wants "no more of Jared’s woke s***." Another source said that President Trump thinks listening to Kushner has hurt his support among his voting base.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
If accurate, the statements might suggest Trump’s unwillingness to proceed with further police reform after he issued an executive order in June that addressed police training standards.
Trump has previously voiced his desire to oppose efforts to abolish or defund local police forces and has said Americans who vote for him in November will be supporting more funding for law enforcement.
Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson has been very critical of how President Trump has listened to Kushner and has given in to the "reckless" prison reform bill.
“He often derides Kushner as a liberal,” Carlson said. “And that’s correct, Kushner is. But Kushner has convinced the president that throwing open the prisons is the key to winning African American votes in the fall and that those votes are essential to his reelection.”
One of the Axios sources says President Trump thought that following Kushner's advice in response to the protests would help him however it seems to have done the opposite.
“He truly believes there is a silent majority out there that’s going to come out in droves in November,” said the source “who’s talked to the president in recent days."
In a statement to Axios, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said: “President Trump is very proud of the historic work that he’s done to benefit all communities. The First Step Act made historic strides toward rectifying racial disparities in sentencing while his executive order to secure America’s streets works with our nation’s heroic police officers to ensure we have safe policing and safe communities.”
Republicans have made it clear in recent days that they will meet the left halfway on certain topics relating to the fallout from the death of George Floyd.
Two Republican Senators have fallen to the left-wing mob and are currently pushing to get rid of Columbus Day and replace it with Juneteenth instead.
Republican Senators Ron Johnson and James Lankford came out in support for making Juneteenth 1 of 10 federal holidays.
“In response to a bipartisan effort to give federal workers another day of paid leave by designating Juneteenth a federal holiday, we have offered a counterproposal that does not put us further into debt,” Johnson said in a statement.
“We support celebrating emancipation with a federal holiday, but believe we should eliminate a current holiday in exchange,” Johnson added.
The Daily Wire reports:
The amendment was filed after Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) moved to recognize Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of slavery in Texas nearly two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, as a federal holiday earlier this month. Democratic senators have also put forth a similar proposal.
