U.S. President Donald Trump participates in a Christmas Day video teleconference from the Oval Office on Dec. 25, 2018. 

 

(JNS) The White House has invited some of President Donald Trump’s business allies to the economic summit scheduled for June 25-26 in Bahrain for the first part of the Trump administration’s highly-anticipated Mideast peace plan for the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Business allies include Tom Barrack, CEO of real estate investment firm Colony Capital; Blackstone CEO Steve Schwarzman, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink and Goldman Sachs’ Dina Powell, who served in the Trump administration as senior counselor to the president for economic initiatives and U.S. deputy national security advisor for strategy, before leaving the White House in January 2018.

“Tom is pleased to be a participant in a well organized forum for the purpose of advancing the peace process in the Middle East,” said Barrack’s spokesperson, Owen Blicksilver. “He has been a lifelong advocate of economic prosperity being a foundation stone of hope for the entire region especially its exploding young and largely unemployed population.”

It is currently unknown if Powell will attend.
