Kushner was given the award for his work on the new USMCA trade agreement.
The Daily Mail reported:
In one of his final acts as president of Mexico, Enrique Pena Nieto bestowed his nation’s highest award for a foreigner on Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to and son-in-law of the United States president.
President Trump made a surprise stop at the ceremony, held in the same hotel as a trade deal signing between the U.S. and Mexico that was to follow. He sat in the front row next to his daughter, Ivanka, as Pena Nieto presented her husband with the award.
Kushner in a tribute to his boss declared Trump to have a ‘genuine respect and care’ for Mexico and it’s people.
‘I do believe we have been able to put that in the right light,’ he said of relations between the two nations, which he claimed are in a ‘historic place’ in the current administration.
