White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is confident President Trump will win a second term in November after the Democratic National Convention.

Kushner, who is also Trump’s son-in-law, said Democrats laid out a negative future for the country as opposed to what the Republicans have planned this week at their own convention, which will take place Aug. 24-27.

“We saw the Democrats with a dark vision for America,” Kushner said Sunday on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS, adding, “President Trump represents the American people. He’s the outsider president, and I think you’ll see a very hopeful version — vision for America that he’s going to be unleashing. You’re going to see a real diversity of the Republican Party that he’s built. You’re going to see it’s gonna be different than how the media tells you.”

Despite polling giving Democratic nominee Joe Biden ahead, Kushner argued the Trump campaign is doing better than it was in 2016 and aims to propose policy solutions to problems facing the nation, which he claimed Democrats lacked at their convention.

“Unlike the Democrats last week where there were a lot of complaints, they didn’t offer much by way of policy or solutions,” Kushner said. “… We feel like we’re in a substantially better position than we were four years ago, and we’re quite excited about the convention coming up this week and the campaign that will ensue after that.”

Despite criticism about Trump’s belief that mass mail-in voting risks election fraud, Kushner also defended the president suggesting in-person voting should be a safe option despite the coronavirus pandemic.

“We have a way of voting that’s been tried and true for many years,” Kushner said. “People are comfortable with it. The president tweeted the other day, if you can protest in-person, you can vote in-person.”
