Donald Trump praised his Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner as a potential Middle East peacemaker on Thursday night, telling a black-tie event on the eve of his inauguration in Washington, DC that if the task proves too much for the 36-year-old, it is impossible.
“If you can’t produce peace in the Middle East, nobody can,” Trump told Kushner, who has been tapped as a senior advisor to the new president. “All my life I’ve been hearing that’s the toughest deal to make, but I have a feeling Jared is going to do a great job.”
Trump also told campaign donors at the event that he expected to claim another four years in office in 2020, thanks to the successes that his first term would rack up.
