Jordan’s King Abdullah II Visits President Trump at White House

A week prior, Trump administration advisors Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt meet with Jordan’s Abdullah II in Amman, outlining America’s proposed plans to kickstart Palestinian-Israeli negotiations. At the White House, President Trump acknowledged Jordan’s key role as an American ally and the Kingdom’s humanitarian response to Syrian refugees fleeing civil war. King Abdullah II seeks to maintain Jordan’s important role in overseeing Muslim rights in Jerusalem. No public announcements are made about the contents of America’s negotiating ideas. Keeping in line with Palestinian opposition to the US’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Senior Palestinian Negotiator Saeb Erekat remarks that “the U.S. still has no plan that can be the basis for serious talks.”
