Jared Kushner might be singlehandedly tasked with securing peace in the Middle East among other totally reasonable assignments from his father-in-law, but today he basked in the warm glow of his favorite private sector heroes.
White House senior adviser Jared Kushner listens as Assistant to the President Chris Liddell speaks at the opening session of the White House meeting with technology Chief Executive Officers to mark "technology week", Monday, June 19, 2017, in the Indian Treat Room of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House complex in Washington.
In a White House full of loud voices, the powerful senior adviser and son-in-law to President Donald Trump tends to keep his mouth shut.
"Today we've assembled a very impressive group of leaders from the private sector and are putting them to work here today to work on some of the country's biggest challenges that will make a very meaningful difference to a lot of its citizens", Mr Kushner told the crowd, which included Alphabet's Eric Schmidt, IBM's Ginni Rometty and Apple's Tim Cook.

Since joining the administration, Kushner has been mocked by satirists for his monastic quiet.
