How to lose friends and 'exfoliate' people

Signing up to carry out Donald Trump’s vision of America has come at a cost to many of the president’s closest allies.

Some have found it a constant struggle to balance their reputations and their newfound access to power.

Perhaps no one knows this better than Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Kushner, 36, has been described as the most powerful aide to the president of the United States. He and his wife, Trump’s oldest daughter, Ivanka, moved to Washington, DC, from New York so Kushner could take an unpaid role as one of Trump’s senior advisers. On Monday, Trump appointed Kushner as the head of the new White House Office of American Innovation, whose aim is to overhaul government operations using ideas from the business world.
