Jared Kushner claims he could live forever thanks to his exercise regime and advancements in medical science.

The son-in-law of former president Donald Trump shared his thoughts during a livestream on Thursday (25 August), stating that he was keeping fit in the hopes that it could help him 'live forever'.

Kushner explained that he has made exercise a 'priority' since he left the White House, where he served as his father-in-law's advisor.

He said: "The one thing I’ve tried to put a priority on since leaving the White House is getting some exercise in."

The 41-year old then explained how he believes he could be part of the last generation to die.

He added: "I think there’s a good probability that my generation is — hopefully with the advances in science — either will be the first generation to live forever or the last generation that’s going to die. So we need to keep ourselves in pretty good shape.”

However, a source close to Kushner has claimed the comments were not to be taken seriously.

Speaking to The Daily Beast, the unnamed source said: "It's like a tongue-in-cheek joke to make the larger point that he wants to work out and be in good shape because people are living longer lives."

Despite this, Kushner has still found himself at the centre of online ridicule after a snippet of the livestream was shared on Twitter.

One user joked: "Is Kushner telling us he is a robot without telling us that he is a robot?"

Another said: "Jared Kushner confirmed Vampire."

Meanwhile a third baffled user said: "Imagine being over the age of 35 & thinking you’re going to live forever. Last week I slept in a bad position & walked like I was Quasimodo for 3 days. At this age, I’d say it’s 50/50 odds I wake up any given morning."

The former Senior advisor appeared on the LivesSigning YouTube livestream on Thursday as part of a series of media rounds to promote his new book, Breaking History: A White House Memoir.

He also made appearances on Megyn Kelly's SiriusXM show and Fox News' Fox & Friends.

During his appearance on Fox News on Wednesday, Kushner revealed that Trump was reading his memoir.

He said: “When I gave it to him, he said, ‘Look, this is a very important book. I’m glad somebody wrote a book that’s really going to talk about what actually happened in the room.’ And he says, ‘I’m going to read it’."

Speaking to host Brian Kilmeade, he added: “So he started reading and he’s given me some compliments on it so far. And again, I hope he’s proud of it. I don’t know if he’ll like anything in it."

He then went onto explain his reasons for writing about his time at the White House.

"I wanted people to really understand what it was like to be living through that when you know you’ve done nothing wrong, you’re there trying to get good things done," he said.

Kushner has been married to Trump's oldest daughter, Ivanka, since 2009. He also served as an administration participant for Trump for talks regarding Middle Eastern peace.
