  • Josh Kushner, the younger brother of President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, donated the maximum $2,600 to Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s Senate campaign last October. 
  • Josh Kushner is reportedly a lifelong Democrat and has donated to a host of other Democratic candidates and causes. 

Josh Kushner, the younger brother of President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, donated $2,600 to Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s Senate campaign last October. 

The younger Kushner, a venture capitalist, made his donation — $100 shy of the maximum amount permitted for an individual in the 2018 cycle — just days before the election on on October 25, Axios reported Thursday. O’Rourke was narrowly defeated by incumbent GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, a staunch ally of the president. 

O’Rourke is now in the race to defeat Trump. He announced his 2020 run for president in mid-March and raised a record $6.1 million in the first 24 hours following his announcement.

Josh Kusher is reportedly a lifelong Democrat and, on his brother’s first day helping lead the Trump administration, attended the January 21, 2017 Women’s March in Washington. That same weekend, he posted a photo of himself with his brother at the White House in front of a portrait of President John F. Kennedy.
