US: Jared Kushner, son-in-law of former U.S. President Donald Trump and a senior adviser in his administration, has reached a deal to write a book billed by his publisher as the “definitive” recounting of Trump’s presidency.
The book will be released early next year, according to publisher Broadside Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers specializing in conservative authors.
Broadside did not make financial terms of the agreement public.
“Jared Kushner was the most consequential adviser throughout President Trump’s presidency, and as a senior adviser, he played a central role in the administration’s most significant accomplishments – including the Abraham Accords, Criminal Justice Reform, Operation Warp Speed, and USMCA,” Broadside said in announcing the deal.
“His book will be the definitive, thorough recounting of the administration and the truth about what happened behind closed doors,” the publisher said.
Eurozone: British consumer price inflation jumped to 2.1% in May, above the Bank of England’s 2.0% target and its highest since July 2019, official figures showed on Wednesday.
The acceleration of price growth from April’s 1.5% was driven in large part by the comparison effect with May 2020 when the country was in its first tight lockdown, especially for clothing, motor fuel, games and take-away food.
A Reuters poll of economists had pointed to a rise in inflation to 1.8%.
Core inflation, which excludes the price of food, energy and other volatile items, rose to 2.0% in the 12 months to May, the Office for National Statistics said.
Investors around the world are trying to gauge the risks of a sustained jump in inflation, especially in the United States where annual inflation hit 5.0% in May, the highest in almost 13 years.
The BoE has said it expects inflation to hit 2.5% by the end of this year as the economy reopens after its coronavirus lockdowns and as global oil prices rise.
