Arizona Congressman Compares His Grueling Harvard Admission Story To Jared Kushner’s

Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), a former Harvard classmate of Jared Kushner’s, blasted the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser for his comments on Fox News insinuating that Donald Trump couldn’t help Black Americans if they didn’t “want to be successful.”

“This is how the 1% look at minorities,” Gallego wrote on Monday.

Then in a powerful Twitter thread, he broke down what he, as a Latino teen not born with a silver spoon in his mouth, had to do to gain acceptance into Harvard, including studying for exams in between flipping burgers, borrowing a friend’s computer to finish his application and riding public transportation to meet his interviewers.

In contrast, the young Kushner had a father, real estate developer Charles Kushner, who was able to donate $2.5 million to the Ivy League university.
