Jared Kushner’s brother gave $50,000 to 'March For Our Lives'

The younger brother of presidential son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner donated $50,000 to the planned march by students against gun violence.

Joshua Kushner quietly made the hefty donation to the “March For Our Lives” rally, Axios reported Sunday morning.

It wasn’t clear how the 32-year-old investor, who started real estate investment firm Cadre and Oscar Health, made the donation or when he might have chipped in.

Representatives for Kushner’s firms didn’t immediately return requests for comment, nor did one for “March For Our Lives.”

Students who survived the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre last month organized the demonstration, which they plan to hold in Washington, D.C., on March 24.

The National Park Service said the group can’t rally on the National Mall, however, because the date is the rain backup for a student “talent show” scheduled for March 25.

Advocacy group Public Citizen requested details under the Freedom of Information Act filed Thursday on why “March For Our Lives” was bumped over to Pennsylvania Avenue.

The demonstration — a response to the shooting that killed 17 — has gotten high-profile support from Oprah Winfrey as well as George and Amal Clooney.

Joshua Kushner was described as a “lifelong Democrat” in a 2016 Esquire profile of his older brother. A spokesman told the magazine Joshua Kushner wouldn’t be voting for Jared’s father-in-law that November.

Trump, who previously championed the NRA, expressed an openness to a few tighter gun rules in wake the Parkland, Fla., shooting.

Trump plans to unveil reforms such as raising the age on rifle sales to 21, arming certain members of school staffs and emboldening the federal background check system, White House spokesman Raj Shah said Sunday on ABC News’ “This Week.”
