President Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, the head of the White House's Middle East peace team, gave an interview on Friday to the most popular Palestinian daily newspaper Al-Quds.

Why it matters: Set to be published Sunday morning, it's Kushner's first-ever interview on the Trump administration's peace efforts. A person familiar with the content of the interview told me that it's an attempt by the White House to talk directly to the Palestinian people before the U.S. launches its peace plan.
