Jared Kushner got mocked as merely a ‘real-estate agent’ after clashing with Palestine’s chief negotiator

Published

on

A top negotiator in Palestinian peace talks derided Jared Kushner for his conflict-riddled role in the process.

Vanity Fair reported that Saeb Erekat, Palestine’s chief negotiator, wrote in a transcribed version of his last meeting with Kushner about how dismissive the president’s son-in-law and adviser was.

In what Erekat said was their 37th meeting, Kushner reportedly assumed a defensive posture when the negotiator told him how much the decision to move the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem will anger Arab heads of state and end the peace process.

“If you do this,” the Palestinian told the president’s adviser, “you will have disqualified yourself from any role in the peace process.”

“Don’t threaten me,” Kushner reportedly replied.

After Kushner later screamed at him for being “sarcastic,” the Palestinian negotiator had had enough.

But Mueller's conclusions are by no means the end-all of everything that happened. Mueller himself acknowledged in his report that Trump's lack of cooperation probably prevented him from finding a lot of information.

Published

on

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
