Kushner, who has been tasked with bringing peace to the Middle East, left for Saudi Arabia on Wednesday and came back to the U.S. on Saturday, and was joined by Dina Powell, deputy national security adviser, and Jason Greenblatt, the Trump administration's Middle East envoy. During the trip, Greenblatt also went to Cairo, Amman, Jerusalem, and Ramallah.
