Trump's son-in-law still tight-lipped on Mideast peace plan

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law is being tight-lipped about the guts of the long-awaited White House blueprint for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

At a think tank event in Washington Thursday, Jared Kushner offered no details of the plan, which he described as a very detailed "operational document" that he hopes will stimulate discussion and possibly lead to breakthroughs in resolving the decades-old conflict.

Kushner spoke at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. The plan, which has been in the works for two years, aims to ensure Israeli security and find ways to bankroll infrastructure and industrial projects to improve the lives of the Palestinians.

The Palestinians, however, have severed ties with the White House and it's unclear how receptive they will be to the plan.
