Donald Trump will appoint a real estate lawyer with minimal experience of foreign relations as his special representative for international negotiations, a role that involves overseeing negotiations between Israelis and the Palestinians.

Jason Greenblatt, who served as Trumpís top adviser on Israel policy during the campaign along with fellow lawyer David Friedman, will take on the role in the president-electís administration. Friedman has already been announced as Trumpís controversial pick for ambassador to Israel.

Greenblatt, whose expertise is in real estate law, did not have any significant foreign policy experience prior to Trumpís presidential campaign. He wrote a Washington Post editorial in July defending Trump from charges of antisemitism.

2. Greenblatt is a Kahanist, his negotiating stance will be to tell the Palestinians to drop dead
