Trump discovering Mideast peace is more complicated than he thought – Chicago Tribune

President Donald Trump boasted during the election that his real estate background could help him succeed where other U.S. presidents have failed in making what he calls the “ultimate” land deal – a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians.

Once he took office, he dove into the seemingly intractable conflict immediately and personally, and named his son-in-law and a trusted family lawyer as would-be peace envoys.

“There is no reason there’s not peace between Israel and the Palestinians – none whatsoever,” Trump said in April.

But five months into the job, Trump is seeing that enthusiasm, business acumen and family connections only go so far, and that a strong pro-Israel stance doesn’t mean Israeli leaders will see things his way.
