He heard his diagnosis from White House physician Sean Conley on Air Force One, Kushner wrote in his book. In November of that year, Kushner underwent surgery on the Friday before Thanksgiving so that he had fewer days off and his absence was more noticeable. Much of the thyroid gland was removed. At the time, Kushner was in tense negotiations with China over a trade deal.
He kept the diagnosis and surgery a secret from the press, though he doesn’t write down the reason. He only informed his wife Ivanka and some staff. Kushner said he didn’t tell Trump at first, but the president found out anyway. Aside from removing the tumor, he did not mention any other treatments.
In addition to the trade deal with China, Kushner has also worked on relations in the Middle East. He was one of the few confidants of the former president and recently testified before a congressional committee about the storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters. According to Kushner, he was taking a shower while on January 6, 2021, more than 2,000 people forced themselves into Parliament House.
