Jared Kushner Breaks Silence After Leaving White House

Former senior White House adviser Jared Kushner has made his first public remarks since departing the White House earlier this year, penning an op-ed about the opportunity for peace in the Middle East.

The opinion article titled “Opportunity Beckons in the Mideast” published in The Wall Street Journal on Sunday, Kushner argues that the Biden administration would be mistaken not to build on the successes of the Trumpadministration in the region.

“Eliminating the ISIS caliphate and bringing about six peace agreements—between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, Morocco, and Kosovo, plus uniting the Gulf Cooperation Council—has changed the paradigm,” Kushner wrote.

Kushner was one of four Trump-administration officials nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in February for their roles in negotiating four normalization deals between Israel and Arab nations.

Kushner, who is the husband of Ivanka Trump, the daughter of former President Donald Trump, highlighted the Trump administration’s 2017 state visit to Saudi Arabia. In a speech in Riyadh during that trip, Trump rallied the Arab world against what he argued was a common adversary, radical Islamic extremism and the Iranian regime, the ideology’s biggest sponsor.

“As the custodian of the two holiest sites in Islam, Saudi Arabia has made significant progress in combating extremism, which has greatly reduced America’s risk of attack and created the environment for today’s new partnerships,” Kushner wrote. “In Mr. Trump’s final deal before leaving office, he brokered the end of the diplomatic conflict between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, restoring an important alliance to counter Iran.”

Kushner has not made any formal public appearances or remarks since departing the White House on Jan. 20. Ivanka Trump made some headlines a week earlier after she was sighted delivering food boxes in Apopka, Florida, as part of the Trump administration’s “Farmers to Families” food box program.

The former president made his first public appearance two weeks ago on Feb. 28. Trump delivered a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida.
