Mexico to grant the highest honor to Trump son-in-law sparkling Twitter outcry

Mexico’s incoming authorities said on Tuesday it might bestow the nation’s top honour for thieves on Jared Kushner, U.S. President Donald Trump‘s son-in-law decided immediately met with derision by critics on interpersonal networking.

Kushner, that also functions as a senior White House advisor, is going to be admitted into the Order of the Aztec Eagle due to”his important contributions” to some brand new North American trade pact agreed to in August, the government said in a statement.

Kushner has regularly played a vital diplomatic role in Trump’s government, meeting with Mexican and other international leaders and assisting broker the deal to upgrade the 24-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement. Canada combined the pact in late September. The award is expected to be officially presented to Kushner on Thursday by outgoing President Enrique Pena Nieto in the sidelines of this G-20 summit of world leaders at Buenos Aires, Mexican newspaper Reforma reported Tuesday, citing unidentified government sources.

The summit is where the leaders of Mexico, the USA and Canada are likely to sign the remodeled regional trade bargain.

The honour bestowed on Kushner was a trending subject on Twitter, in which it seemed to be largely criticized by prominent Mexicans.

“Offering him the Eagle reflects an eventual mindset of embarrassment and cowardice,” Mexican historian Enrique Krauze wrote in 1 place, imagining that Trump called Mexican migrants murderers and rapists throughout his 2016 presidential effort.

Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal wrote that the choice to honor Kushner has been”tremendously black.”

Past Order of the Aztec Eagle honorees include Colombian Nobel literature laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez and former South African President Nelson Mandela.

Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will be inaugurated on Saturday after winning a landslide election victory in July. Kushner’s spouse, Ivanka Trump, is expected to attend the swearing-in and additional U.S. officials, including Vice President Mike Pence.
