The nephew of an Israeli diamond trader billionaire helped US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner to seal a major real estate deal in 2012, The New York Times reported Wednesday.
Raz Steinmetz — whose uncle, Beny Steinmetz, is being investigated for bribery — provided much of the $50 million (£38.67 million) down payment for a roughly $190 million (£146.88 million) deal to acquire dozens of Lower Manhattan apartment buildings, the paper said.
The newspaper also noted that while the 36-year-old resigned in January from the post of chief executive of his family’s firm, Kushner Companies, he is still the beneficiary of trusts that own the business.
