Another one bites the dust: Trump's Middle East envoy resigns amid Kushner's stalling peace plan
Jason Greenblatt is leaving as President Donald Trump’s envoy for brokering an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, senior officials told NBC News on Thursday.

His departure, confirmed by the president on Twitter, is the latest sign that optimism within the Trump administration for the long-awaited plan’s prospects may be fading. Release of the plan, under development since the start of administration, has already been delayed several times, most recently until sometime after the Israeli elections on Sept. 17.

Avi Berkowitz, a longtime aide to Trump senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, will replace Greenblatt in his role as special adviser for international negotiations, the administration officials said.

The substance of the plan that the White House has been championing for months remains opaque, though it has two parts: one to address economic issues, and the other dedicated to political divides.

The economic portion of the plan was released in June to little fanfare during a U.S.-organized summit in Bahrain that neither Israeli nor Palestinian officials attended. It called for an investment of about $50 billion to lift up Palestinians economically.

Yet since then, there has been little sign of progress toward rolling out the broader plan that will address the thorniest issues, such as whether the Palestinians will get an independent state, the status of Palestinian refugees, the city of Jerusalem, and Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

Greenblatt, a real estate lawyer who worked for Trump's business for roughly two decades, did not have any diplomatic experience before being tapped by Trump for the Mideast peace envoy role at the start of the Trump administration.
