Kushner's remarks on the embassy opening on Monday amounted to his most vital coverage speech to this point and the jarring break up display screen on Monday underscored the enormity of the endeavor the President's son-in-law has been tasked with - and the challenges his efforts have confronted to this point. 'How do would you know?

The relocation of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem has been highly contentious for America abruptly breaking from decades of global tradition with the symbolic move that recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital, something that offends Palestinians who long said the city was its own capital.

The embassy move will take place on the 70th anniversary of Israel's founding.

Mr. Kushner arrived Sunday in Israel with the USA delegation that included Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, adviser on Israel Jason Greenblatt, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and Ivanka Trump.

None of them are believed to be cooperating with Ward.


After Kushner's speech saying people would remember that day as part of a "journey to peace", Colbert said "we'll see if there's peace but we'll definitely remember". He was accompanied by a recorded message from his father-in-law, Donald Trump.

Nor were the sentiments from Kushner and his illustrious father-in-law the only notes of irony injected into the proceedings.

The exact word Yosef used was "kushi", a term "in modern Hebrew [that] has pejorative connotations", the Times of Israel reported at the time. "You can't make the blessing on every "kushi" you see-in America you see one every five minutes, so you make it only on a person with a white father and mother", he said.

And for anyone who thought that Ivanka would be an asset to the American people, Ward says that they're wrong because she is running her own agenda to promote her brand.

The feedback and the visuals of Kushner and different high USA officers - together with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and the President's daughter Ivanka Trump - on the embassy opening will additional solidify the Trump administration's method to peace as one that's extra involved with backing up Israel than enjoying the position of mediator between Israeli and Palestinian leaders. "But don't ask Trump to name the capital of any other countries, though".
