Josh Kushner loves his older brother but he won’t do that — “that” being vote for Donald Trump.

Through a spokesperson, the 31-year-old told Esquire Magazine that he’s a lifelong Democrat and will not be voting for his brother’s father-in-law in November. Though the brothers are close, they generally keep their distance when it comes to their professional lives. Jared Kushner actively runs the real estate firm his father Charles started, while his younger brother has not attended company meetings regularly for several years.

The younger Kushner runs Thrive Capital, a venture fund he launched in 2009, and Vostu, a social game developer. In 2012, The Real Deal profiled the then-27-year-old Josh Kushner.

Anther difference between the two brothers is their public personas. Josh Kushner is fairly private. Meanwhile, as an active part of Trump’s campaign and the publisher of the New York Observer, the elder Kushner has dominated headlines. Several reporters have claimed he strong-armed them to pursue a story against real estate investor Richard Mack.
