White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner canceled his interview with MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell as he continues to publicize the historic peace agreement between Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain.
Kushner entered the media circuit following the signing of the Abraham Agreements, as he was widely credited for leading the Middle East peace talks on behalf of the Trump administration.
However, Mitchell told his viewers Wednesday that, despite having scheduled his interview on his show days earlier, Kushner canceled hours before he appeared on the air.

“We had planned to have White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner on our schedule today, an apparition that was booked for several days and widely promoted,” Mitchell began. “This morning, the White House informed us that Mr. Kushner’s program was reshuffled and had to cancel. This is unfortunate. Of course I was going to ask him about the significant and historic breakthrough of the White House between Israel and two Arab nations he has helped. to mediate “.
NBC News’ principal foreign affairs correspondent later suggested, albeit halting before an allegation, that Kushner’s cancellation of his interview may have been linked to the ABC News town hall that President Trump attended Tuesday evening. .
However, the canceled interview also followed Mitchell’s report on Abraham’s agreements on “NBC Nightly News” which seemed to downplay the foreign policy results.

“With pomp and circumstance, the president announces the first Arab nations to recognize Israel since 1994,” Mitchell said. “Both countries have been dealing in silence with Israel for years, sharing information against Iran, a common enemy.”
He continued: “But today’s agreements open the doors to trade, travel and tourism. But it is not peace in the Middle East.”
He went on to describe how Palestinians were “abandoned by their Arab neighbors” and how they were left “unable to do anything but protest”.
Mitchell called Trump and Netanyahu, whom he called “two conflicting political leaders” as the “big winners” of the deal.

The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
