A Jewish real estate developer who is friends with Jared Kushner reportedly is joining Donald Trump’s administration as assistant to the president.

Reed Cordish, a partner at his family’s real estate and entertainment firm, The Cordish Companies, co-hosted a fundraiser for Trump’s presidential campaign in October, according to Jewish Insider, which first reported on Cordish joining the Trump administration. Cordish is in his early 40s.
