Trump’s Approach to Foreign Policy Allowed the Abraham Accords to Succeed: Special Envoy to Middle East

After having spent almost two decades with the Trump organization, Jason Greenblatt was tapped by President Donald Trump to be the White House Special Envoy to the Middle East. He played a key role in the Peace to Prosperity Plan, which aimed to resolve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, and Israel and the surrounding Arabic nations.

The Middle East peace team included Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, and Greenblatt. Their shared Jewish faith bought a cohesiveness to the group and was something their Muslim counterparts in every country could understand and respect, Greenblatt said.

“I should also stress, including from the Palestinians, that we may not have gotten along in certain key ways, we maybe didn’t see eye to eye on the conflict, but there wasn’t one who wasn’t respectful of me being Jewish,” Greenblatt said during a Sept. 8 interview for EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders” program.

The diplomatic and political establishment criticized the fact that all three team members were Jewish and pro-Israel, and Friedman was the only diplomat, but Greenblatt said these factors only enhanced their effectiveness. The fact that the historic Abraham Accords were signed is a testament to this, he said.
