Trump: if Jared Kushner can't achieve peace in Middle East, 'it can't be done'

President also told Israeli American Council summit some Jewish people in the US don’t love Israel enough and attacked Ilhan Omar

<snip>

"If Jared Kushner cannot achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians, Donald Trump claimed on Saturday, “it can’t be done”.

The president also told the Israeli American Council national summit some Jewish people in America don’t love Israel enough, a remark some said was antisemitic, and attacked the Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar for what he called her “despicable rhetoric” about Israel.

Speaking in Hollywood, Florida, after addressing a Republican dinner in nearby Aventura, the president introduced Kushner, his son-in-law and senior adviser who has played a leading role in helping the administration craft its Middle East peace plan.

Trump said he had long been told that achieving peace between Israel and the Palestinians would be the hardest deal of all. But “if Jared Kushner can’t do it, it can’t be done”, he said."

JARED KUSHNER: MY IGNORANCE COULD BE THE KEY TO WORLD PEACE

<snip>

"Since going to work for his father-in-law in 2017, Jared Kushner has failed to accomplish virtually all of the tasks he’s been assigned, from solving the opioid crisis to re-inventing the entire government. Sure, he played a role in passing a criminal-reform bill, but that legislation had wide bipartisan support, even in these deeply partisan times. Elsewhere, Kushner’s dearth of achievements can be directly attributed to his complete and utter lack of experience, a circumstance that led U.S. officials to warn last year that the Boy Prince of New Jersey was being targeted by countries that saw him as an easy mark, and which was one reason the White House’s personnel security office tried and failed to stop him from obtaining a top-secret clearance. A top Palestinian negotiator sees him as a glorified “real-estate agent.” His texting habit with a murderous leader who reportedly boasted about having the First Son-in-Law in his pocket has become a point of contention in the administration. He actually believed he could convince Democrats to agree to build Donald Trump’s wall, and dragged out a government shutdown only to have it blow up in his face. “He’s a total nonentity,” as one senior Democratic aide put it. Yet according to young Jared, not only is he about to tackle two major issues that have eluded more competent people for nearly 50 years, but his total lack of experience is a good thing, something someone who doesn’t have the faintest clue what he’s doing would say. Per Politico:

With a headlong plunge into immigration reform and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Kushner is presenting his political inexperience as an asset, telling lawmakers he is free of preconceived notions that stymied previous attempts. His air of breezy self-assurance in the private meetings he is conducting to tease his plans at times astounds the battle-scarred veterans of past such efforts. Critics complain, too, that his briefings are often woefully short on detail.


But hey, what Ivanka’s husband lacks in relevant knowledge or a plan he makes up for in . . . PowerPoint slides:

Kushner has been talking up his immigration plan with the aid of a PowerPoint presentation, which detractors have derided as laughably simplistic. In the version he debuted to lawmakers on Tuesday, the slides showed circles placed next to each other representing different potential immigration reforms and flags denoting “peer nations” that have adopted merit-based immigration systems, such as Canada, Australia, and Japan, according to two Republicans who have viewed the presentation.

2. What a crock!

If he is the only person who can do it, why hasn't he done it? He's a slumlord in the U.S., so-called peace negotiator in the mid-east.

5. Didn't Trump promise that with his deal-making skills, an Israel deal was in the bag?
