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.”
….His dedication to Israel and to seeking peace between Israel and the Palestinians won’t be forgotten. He will be missed. Thank you Jason!
