“Let Jordan take the West Bank, let Egypt take Gaza, let them act with it or drown as they try it,” he said, quoting former White House strategic adviser Steve Bannon in his explanation of Trump’s Middle East vision. White “by Michael Wolf, who caused a stir immediately after Friday’s release.
This is a vision adopted by previous US administrations and could not be promoted in the region, because of the clear Jordanian and Palestinian position, but the difference between the departments is not the vision and management of a confederation.
