Trump Creates New Negotiator Role for His Attorney, Jason Greenblatt

HeadlineDec 28, 2016
Greenblatt

Donald Trump has tapped his company’s top lawyer, Jason Greenblatt, to fill the newly created position of special representative for international negotiations. Greenblatt is an expert in real estate law, with little foreign policy experience. The Trump transition team said Greenblatt’s new role would be to assist on “international negotiations of all types, and trade deals around the world.” During the campaign, Greenblatt defended Trump against charges of anti-Semitism, serving as his adviser on Israel. Last month, Greenblatt said he doesn’t see Israel’s construction of settlements on occupied Palestinian lands as an obstacle to peace.
