President Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner travels to Iraq

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, is in Iraq with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, an official said Sunday.

Kushner traveled with Gen. Joseph Dunford to see the situation in Iraq for himself and show support for the Iraqi government, an official said. Last month, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi met with Trump and Kushner.

The trip comes as the U.S. investigates civilian deaths near the site of a Mosul airstrike in March.

Kushner, 36, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, has no previous diplomatic or government experience, but Trump has made Kushner his point person on foreign policy.

The President also believes Kushner is the one member of his White House administration capable of brokering Middle East peace.

Kushner was expected to join Trump for talks later this week with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his father-in-law’s Palm Beach estate.

He was expected to have a major role in meetings later this week between Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at Trump’s winter retreat in Palm Beach, Florida.
