The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — David Sherfin­ski

Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump of­fi­cially an­nounced Tues­day the ap­point­ment of Ja­son Green­blatt, a top Trump Or­ga­ni­za­tion ex­ec­u­tive, to be Mr. Trump’s spe­cial rep­re­sen­ta­tive for in­ter­na­tional ne­go­ti­a­tions.

Mr. Trump called Mr. Green­blatt, ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent and chief le­gal of­fi­cer of the Trump Or­ga­ni­za­tion, one of his “clos­est and most trusted ad­vis­ers.”

“He has a his­tory of ne­go­ti­at­ing sub­stan­tial, com­plex trans­ac­tions on my be­half, as well as the ex­per­tise to bring par­ties to­gether and build con­sen­sus on dif­fi­cult and sen­si­tive top­ics,” Mr. Trump said.

Mr. Trump said Mr. Green­blatt’s role will en­tail “as­sist­ing on in­ter­na­tional ne­go­ti­a­tions of all types, and trade deals around the world.”

Mr. Green­blatt, who was also one of Mr. Trump’s top ad­vis­ers on U.S.-Is­raeli re­la­tions dur­ing the cam­paign, said it’s “an ex­cep­tional honor” to join Mr. Trump and his team.

“My phi­los­o­phy, in both busi­ness and in life, is that bring­ing peo­ple to­gether and work­ing to unite, rather than to di­vide, is the strong­est path to suc­cess,” Mr. Green­blatt said.
