Kushner called Lockheed CEO to get a better arms deal for the Toads

Pres Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner personally called the CEO of Lockheed Martin during a meeting with a Saudi delegation earlier this month to ask her to cut the price of a missile defense system, The NYT reported Thursday. The call was part of Kushner’s effort to secure a roughly $110b arms sale to the Toads before Trump’s scheduled trip to the kingdom on Friday. During the meeting with the delegation, Kushner determined that cost could prohibit the Saudis from purchasing a THAAD missile defense system, which is designed to shoot down IRBMs. Kushner phoned Marillyn Hewson, CEO of Lockheed Martin, which manufactures THAAD, and asked her if her company could lower the cost of the ABM system. She reportedly told him she would look into it. The phone call does not appear to break any laws. Lockheed Martin is the only company that makes the anti-missile system, meaning that the contract would not be offered to another firm. Similarly, in February Lockheed cut the cost of the F-35 fighter jet after weeks of pressure and scrutiny to do so by Trump. Kushner has been tasked by his father-in-law with a sweeping portfolio of responsibilities. Among the undertakings on his list are heading a task force aimed at reforming the federal government, looking into criminal justice reform and pursuing peace in the Middle East.
