Sunday in Washington D.C. at the Brookings Institution’s Saban Forum, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner discussed the Trump administration’s attempt to broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.
Kushner said. “The president has a very long career of accomplishing things that a lot of people think are impossible. The most recent example of that is the election. When we started the process of looking at how to create the peace deal, the first thing a lot of people told us that it wasn’t the right time, that we’re wasting our time.”

He continued, “We ultimately decided to make the president’s first trip to Saudi Arabia for a few reasons. The first one was that Saudi Arabia is a custodian for the two holy sites, is one of the leaders in the Islamic and Muslim world, and we thought that would be a great place to really convene a lot of the countries. We got 54 Arab Muslim countries together for a summit which is the first time that happened. And we were really able to set out what this administration’s priorities are.”
He added,”But also to say we are not going to solve these problems ourselves. We have to solve them all together. These problems are not American’s problems they are the world’s problems.”
