The Trump administration began hosting a conference in the Gulf kingdom of Bahrain on Tuesday to promote its plan for peace in the Middle East. The two-day “Peace to Prosperity” gathering is an effort to convince countries in the region and investors to send $50 billion over 10 years to the Palestinian territories and surrounding areas in an “economy first” approach. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner leads the effort.
