Kushner Family Says Jeffrey Loria Becoming Ambassador Would Halt Marlins Sale

On Wednesday, it was reported that Loria was under consideration by the Trump Administration to be the United States ambassador to France.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said recent reports of the team's potential sale and owner Jeffrey Loria perhaps becoming US ambassador to France are not a distraction.

"If that is true, we do night want this unrelated transaction to complicate that process and will not pursue it".

Ilitch and give a hug, it's nice to be able to do that", he said, according to a report by George Sipple in the Deroit Free Press. Despite the city's decline in the decades following, Ilitch stayed in his hometown, earning him much admiration.

Reports last week indicated that the Kushners, led by Jared's brother Joshua, had been in talks to buy the Marlins for months.

Since Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner is a senior adviser to the president, the Kushners reportedly are wary that the purchase would look like a corrupt ambassadorship-for-team trade.

Kushner's son-in-law released a statement to the New York Times on Wednesday explaining why. Kushner, who founded a private equity and venture capital firm, and Meyer would need to secure outside financing to meet Loria's asking price of $1.6 billion.

The New York Post reported Wednesday that the 76-year-old art dealer is under consideration for a role in the Trump administration as USA ambassador to France. We first learned that there was at least a "handshake deal" to sell the Marlins at some point this year - presumably after Loria got to bask in the joy of having the All-Star Game in Marlins Park.

Officials with the Marlins have not commented, and team president David Samson is expected to address the issue on Friday. He gave $125,000 to the Trump Victory super-political action committee in 2016 in addition to a $2,700 contribution to Trump's campaign. It has been decided that Charles Kushner, the patriarch of the family and a real estate mogul, would not be involved in the purchase.

The potential sale of the Miami Marlins could be on hold due to current owner Jeffrey Loria's diplomatic future.
