Jared Kushner Speaks at White House Tech Summit

At a White House tech summit that lured Silicon Valley’s most powerful and obsequious, Kushner made a rare public speaking appearance to mostly say some unobjectionable stuff about floppy disks, a topic surely in the front of every American’s mind.

The official said the two would “continue conversations” with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, following their trip last month to the region with the president himself.

Typical government stuff, and he didn’t address reports that he’s reconsidering his legal team or that he’s traveling to the Middle East for peace talks.

Trump signed another order in March to establish the White House Office of American Innovation to bring together the best ideas from government, the private sector, and other thought leaders so as to “ensure that America is ready to solve today’s most intractable problems”.

Kushner and Greenblatt are hoping to “continue conversations” with both sides but noting that an accord nearly certainly would require ongoing discussions. Kushner has denied any improper contacts with Russian Federation.

Jared Kushner expressed enthusiasm for the progress he’s seen and feels encouraged.

Jason Greenblatt, Trump’s global envoy, will arrive on Monday. The White House official stressed that both presidential advisers are respectful of the interagency process and working with the State Department, led by Secretary Rex Tillerson, and the National Security Council, led by national security adviser H.R. McMaster. Their goal, the White House said, was “to continue conversations and hear directly from [Israeli] Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu and his senior advisers and [Palestinian Authority] President [Mahmoud] Abbas and his senior advisers about their priorities and potential next steps”.
