Kushner to visit Mexico after Trump tirades, testy phone call

  • Jared Kushner lost his top secret security clearance. The internet is celebrating

In addition to the staffers that have already been fired, ABC News' sources say that there is "a list of several other individuals with security clearance issues that are under consideration for possible termination or reassignment in the coming days".

Pena Nieto was originally scheduled to meet Trump at the White House, but the plans were scrapped after the two leaders had a contentious telephone call over a border wall, CBS News reported.

Kushner is a top foreign policy adviser, but has recently lost access to the most valued USA intelligence report, US officials told Reuters last week. It was the second time Pena Nieto had called off a Washington visit because of disagreements with Trump.

"I see it as one of the few things of effect that he can do that don't require security clearance", said Agustin Barrios Gomez, a former federal congressman and head of the working group on the future of US-Mexico relations at the Mexican Council on Foreign Relations.

Beyond that, Mr. Kushner, who also met with Mexico's foreign minister, did not invite the American ambassador - Roberta S. Jacobson, a diplomat with more than 30 years of experience in the region - to join him in the meetings, according to a senior American official who was not authorized to speak publicly.

Kushner, who is Trump's son-in-law, and the other US officials also attended an earlier separate meeting with Videgaray.

Mr. Kushner's meeting with President Enrique Peña Nieto was meant to soothe tensions.

Representatives of the two countries are working toward "agreements beneficial to both nations", according to a statement by the Mexican government - which added the sessions "will depend on the level of progress achieved" over issues like trade, security and immigration.
