On the campaign trail, President Donald Trump stated that he would like to be the president who brought peace to the Middle East, and after he won the 2016 election, he vowed to follow through on that promise.
Trump tapped his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, with finding a way to bring peace to the Middle East, and it appears that Kushner is already starting that process with a surprise trip to Iraq, the U.K. Daily Mail reported.
Kushner’s visit to Iraq had not been announced ahead of time — which is understandable, given the horrific security situation going on over there — and it came as a great surprise to many in the media.
NPR noted that Kushner is in Iraq with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford to show support for the Iraqi government in its fight against the Islamic State terror group.
Kushner’s visit marks an early step by the Trump administration to show its support for the Iraqi government, something Trump promised to do after he met with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi two weeks ago, Fox News reported.
It is unclear if Kushner will be talking about a potential peace process for the Middle East or if his visit is merely symbolic.
Despite his lack of governmental experience, Kushner has taken on a very visible role in the Trump administration. Most recently he was put in charge of a new agency within the White House dedicated to making the federal government more efficient.
Many former presidents have tried to find a way to bring peace to the Middle East, but all have failed, no matter how earnest their efforts were.
If Trump (or Kushner) can be the one to finally bring an end to the bloodshed in the region, then his name will forever be remembered in the history books as one of the greatest presidents of all time.
