Trump staffs up Mideast team for peace plan rollout

Source: AP

WASHINGTON (AP) ó U.S. officials say the Trump administration is staffing up a Middle East policy team at the White House in anticipation of unveiling its long awaited but largely mysterious Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.

The National Security Council last week began approaching other agencies seeking volunteers to join the team, which will work for President Donald Trumpís Mideast peace pointmen Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt, according to the officials. The team, which is being set up to organize the peace planís public presentation and any negotiations that may ensue, will comprise three units: one concentrating on its political and security details, one on its significant economic focus and one on strategic communications, the officials said.

The creation of a White House team is the first evidence in months that a plan is advancing. Although Trump officials have long promised the most comprehensive package ever put forward toward resolving the conflict, the emerging plan has not been described with even a small amount of detail by Kushner, Greenblatt or any other official.

Timing on the release of the plan remains undecided. The State Department, Pentagon, intelligence agencies and Congress have been asked to detail personnel to the team for six months to a year, according to the officials, who were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter and spoke on condition of anonymity.

4. don't worry

 

this 'team' will be at each other's throats especially with jarrad in the mix. They all know he's a quick study and soooooo very knowledgeable. Nothing of substance will be forthcoming from this pail of human garbage representing you and I. Fuck Trump.

5. There will probably be a plan, but it will be a total joke and non-starter.

He's presented the Palestinians with numerous peace plans, only every one of them was basically them getting everything they own stolen by Israel and they become slaves. The plans presented have been rejected immediately, not even considered by the Palestinians for one minute because it's not a peace plan but a total capitulation. Kushners' family has funded illegal Israeli settlers stealing Palestinian land and that's all he cares about, stealing all Palestinian land and enslaving them for Israel's benefit. The criminal thieves are at it again.

8. Yeah that worked out GREAT! Thanks for your great advice, Jared the Wonderkind.

May I remind everyone that Hillary's descent into hell as the target of the right-wing began when she was advising her husband the president. Despite that face that she was imminently qualified.

Fast forward 30 years, and a doofus know-nothing son in law and even more vacant and useless "first daughter" can be installed as presidential advisors with actual foreign and domestic policy responsibility and no one bats a fucking eye.

9. Ivanka, Trumps useless "first daughter"

Yes! She wore a dress that matched the color of the embassy building for
its "grand opening." And as we dropped a lit match into the gasoline by
moving the embassy to Jerusalem Ivanka was all giggles and smiles meanwhile
100s of Palestinians were being shot not too far away.
