Netanyahu tells Kushner he proved the “naysayers” wrong.
When Trump appointed Kushner in 2017, “all the experts, the so-called experts, belittled the appointment,” the prime minister tells the visiting Trump adviser.
“Now, you can say, I can say, how wrong these naysayers were.”
Many have tried, and “none had greater success than you, Jared.”
Netanyahu says Kushner “reinforced American influence in the Middle East and in Middle East peacemaking.”
“I think you greatly enhanced America’s standing in the region,” says Netanyahu.
The Trump administration peace plan “is the only realistic peace plan that has been presented so far,” he says.
Netanyahu also thanks Donald Trump for his support for Israel, says the country is “deeply indebted.”
