Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner criticized the ongoing protests for racial justice Thursday, saying the country has "seen enough" and that it's now time to find solutions.

He said during an interview with Politico, "This country's seen enough of the protests and some of the negative things that can happen when the protests go too far or are hijacked.

"You look at a lot of these cities, and you look at a lot of these politicians that were talking last week. They've done a lot of complaining, but a lot of these people have been here for decades and haven't gotten anything done."

Kushner, the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, said what the country needs right now are fixes to the problems.

"What we need to do right now is make sure we take the anger that people have, and we have to move from slogans to constructive solutions," he said.

Kushner also took aim at the NBA, which postponed all of its games Wednesday night after the Milwaukee Bucks boycotted their game against the Orlando Magic following a police shooting in Wisconsin. A Black man was shot in the back by police and is now paralyzed.

It was later reported that two NBA teams, the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers, voted to boycott the rest of the abbreviated season.

"We're offering solutions with policy. The other side's doing a lot of complaining," Kushner said. "What I'd love to see from the players in the NBA, again, they have the luxury of taking the night off from work. Most Americans don't have the financial luxury to do that."
