Special Envoy Jason Greenblatt, President Donald Trump’s main adviser on the conflict between Israel and Palestine, resigned on Thursday.

Trump confirmed Greenblatt’s departure via Twitter.

“Jason has been a loyal and great friend and fantastic lawyer,” he tweeted. “His dedication to Israel and to seeking peace between Israel and the Palestinians won’t be forgotten.”

Greenblatt, who didn’t have a formal background in diplomacy or foreign policy, was the Trump Organization’s executive vice president and the company’s chief legal officer before he joined the Trump administration.
