Jeffrey Loria being considered as United States ambassador to France, report says

Jeffrey Loria being considered as United States ambassador to France, report says”

The delay in the purchasing process has been created as the Kushner family is directly tied to President Trump, with Jared Kushner having married the President's daughter, Ivanka. However, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday that Johnson's appointment may also be getting held up in the Tillerson-Priebus dispute.

Should current Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria be nominated by President Donald Trump as the USA ambassador to France, as has been reported, real estate mogul Charles Kushner and his family will no longer be interested in buying the team.

"If that is true, we do not want this unrelated transaction to complicate that process and will not pursue it", the statement added. A person with direct knowledge of the negotiations says Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has a preliminary agreement to sell the team to a NY businessman, but the deal could fall through because the final purchase price hasn't been determined.

Diplomacy, perhaps, according to a report from the New York Post.

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, 76, is expected to be announced for the post within days, The New York Times reported Thursday.

Loria is a longtime major contributor to the Republican National Committee, which Priebus led until taking the job with Trump.

Loria contributed a reported $125,000 to Trump's campaign.

It has always been a presidential tradition to reward generous political donors with plum ambassadorships. That team was in Oklahoma City.

There were reports last week that the Kushner family were in talks to purchase the Marlins for $1.6 billion.

The Marlins haven't commented.

Other parties are also interested in buying the Marlins, and Loria might reopen negotiations with them.

The message the Kushner Family has sent to current Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is simple.
