The White House "Peace team" — senior advisor Jared Kushner and special envoy Jason Greenblatt — met with King Abdullah of Jordan today in Amman and discussed the Trump administration's Middle East peace plan.

What to watch: After Amman, Kushner and Greenblatt are expected to visit Cairo, Riyadh, Doha and Jerusalem. Senior U.S. officials said one of their aims is to listen to ideas from regional players regarding the contents and the timing of the peace plan. Kushner and Greenblatt will not go to Ramallah because Palestinian leadership refuses to engage with them.
