Jared Kushner, the Jewish son-in-law of US President Donald Trump, reportedly traveled to Iraq over the weekend with a number of defense officials. Kushner, who has been tasked by Trump with the onerous burden of fostering a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, serves as one of the president’s closest and most trusted advisors, but his role on the short Middle East trip is unclear.
The White House has not made any formal announcement or statement regarding the trip, nor Kushner’s participation, declining to even confirm his presence in the Middle East. The New York Times reported that Kushner had been invited to join by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph F. Dunford Jr.
A senior Trump official said on Sunday that Kushner had wanted to see the situation in Iraq, where the US military is active, first-hand, as well as show support for the US-backed Iraqi government.
