Trump told his Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner, “If you can’t produce peace in the Middle East, nobody can.”
US President-elect Donald Trump, who assumes the presidency on Friday, spoke confidently of his son-in-law’s ability to make peace in the Middle East, during his last pre-inauguration dinner for donors at Washington DC’s Union Station on Thursday evening.
“If you can’t produce peace in the Middle East, nobody can,” Trump said, directing his remarks to his Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner.
“All my life I’ve been hearing that’s the toughest deal in the world to make,” Trump continued. “And I’ve seen it, but I have a feeling that Jared is going to do a great job.”
Trump had also conveyed his full faith in Kushner’s ability to assume the responsibilities of a Middle East peace envoy, to the German Bild outlet earlier this week.
“Jared is such a good lad, he will secure an Israel deal which no one else has managed to get,” Trump said. “You know, he’s a natural talent, he is the top, he is a natural talent. He has an innate ability to make deals, everyone likes him.”
Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, was appointed earlier this month to be a senior White House advisor for the incoming administration.
