The Abraham Accords was about "making money" for the Kushner family American rapper Kanye West told FOX host Tucker Carlson on his show in a segment on Thursday night.

West, who now goes by the pseudonym Ye, criticized Jared Kushner's role in the Trump administration in the interview.

"When I think about all of these things that Jared somehow doesn't get enough credit for with his work and what is his work, Israel or his work in Pal[estine]... you know he made these peace treaties," said West, referring to the Abraham Accords. "I just think it was to make money."

West asked Carlson if his comments were too heavy-handed, but Carlson said that he would not censor the artist.
"I just think that's what they're about, is making money," West continued. "I don't think that they have the ability to make anything on their own. I think they were born into money.”

"I just think [The Abraham Accords] was to make money."

West and the Kushners

West said that after having dinner with Ivanka Trump, and Jared and Josh Kushner, he felt that the Kushners "might have really been holding [former US President Donald] Trump back, and being very much a handler."

In a now-deleted Instagram post earlier in the day, West wrote "f*** Josh Kushner," and "Jared was holding Trump back," but that "Ivanka [Trump] is fire."

During the dinner, West also discovered that Josh Kushner had more shares in the Skims brand, which West had created with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian. West found this to be insulting. 

West also shared during the interview that the Kardashian had other political connections such as with the Clinton family.
