President Donald Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner said the peace treaties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, brokered by US on September 15, is the beginning of "a new Middle East". According to CNN, he also hinted that the Trump administration is making progress in getting more countries in the region, including Saudi Arabia, to recognize Israel.

These comments were made after a White House ceremony, dubbed the Abraham Accords, marked the first Middle East White House peace signing in more than two decades, as per CNN. "I think we had a very good breakthrough. What's happened is in the Middle East, the deals have been so well received. That's what helped Bahrain go quickly. They saw how well the deal was received in the United Arab Emirates and throughout the Muslim world. The people in the region are tired of war," Kushner told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on 'The Situation Room'. "They're tired of conflict. They want to move forward, and they see bridging this gap and getting a better understanding between countries as a way to move forward."

While the peace deals were a point of discussion, a lot of people on Twitter were concerned about what was happening with the coronavirus situation in the country. As per a Business Insider report, in March and early April, Kushner had led a task force, parallel to the White House's official efforts, to chart out a plan to speed up coronavirus testing and supply chains nationwide. But, as per the report, it was abandoned and Trump had transferred the responsibility for controlling outbreaks to individual states.

Recently, in an interview, he defended Trump again. As per Today.com, he addressed audio tapes released by veteran journalist Bob Woodward in which Trump told Woodward he had downplayed the pandemic. "The president was very forthcoming with the American people about what he knew and when he knew it," Kushner told Savannah Guthrie on September 15. "President Trump, obviously, he banned travel from China, he banned travel from Europe. This was an unprecedented pandemic and as different facts evolved, the president informed the public." In another interview, while addressing the need for stimulus packages, especially looking at the situation of the economy, he told CNBC, "The hope is that we’ll still get to a deal," Kushner said. “It may have to happen after the election, because there obviously are politics involved. This is Washington."

So, even though Kanye hailed Kusner on Twitter by saying, "Jared Kushner will have done more for peace in the Middle East than anyone in 30 years," Twitter wasn’t pleased. One user alleged, "Remember when Jared Kushner and his buddies destroyed a national COVID-19 testing & tracing plan, because he thought the virus would only hit 'blue states' and was OK with putting millions of Americans in danger? We remember."

Another alleged, "Let us not forget that Jared Kushner cut access to Covid-19 testing for all Americans' in the United States of America intentionally. The thought here was those living primarily in 'blue' states would revolt against their Governors. This is NO Camp David you Desk Murderess." On the peace deal, a user said, "Kushner is working without a net nor a support staff that knows a darn thing about the Middle East and problems that exist there. For Jared Kushner and more importantly Trump the peace deal is a transactional relationship and Trump makes money. Lots of money. Nothing good here."





Another slammed him for defending Trump, "The level of gaslighting is really something. 'The president was very forthcoming with the American people about what he knew and when he knew it,' Kushner told Savannah Guthrie on TODAY.” Commenting on Kanye’s tweet one said, "Jared Kushner will have done more for Jared Kushner than anyone in 30 years. He doesn't give a sht about you or anyone else." Another told Kanye, "Kanye should really stay out of Politics, inserting himself where he does not belong. Stick to music and fashion please and thank you."
