"If I can help mediate between Qatar and, in particular, the UAE and Saudi Arabia, I would be willing to do so, and I think you would have a deal worked out very quickly", Trump said at a joint news conference with Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah.
This is the Kuwaiti Amir's first visit to the United States during Trump's presidency and comes after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates cut relations with Qatar in June 2017, accusing the country of supporting extremism.
Mr Trump boasted about increased counter-terrorism and intelligence-sharing operations between the two countries, and praised the "tremendous investments" he said Kuwait had made in the US.
"Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt are all essential USA partners in this effort".
They say it is the world's most complex and hard deal, you know that.
"And there may be no solution, but it's one of the problem sets that the president asked us to focus on", Kushner said. In July, however, Kushner said that finding a peace deal might not be possible. "The hope has not ended yet". "Any dialogue on meeting their demands should not be preceded by any prior conditions", they said in a statement that was an unusual, personal rebuke in the clubby world of Gulf Arab states.
Special counsel Robert Mueller and the House and Senate intelligence committees are also investigating the meeting, which was attended by Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and then-campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.
Trump's call to Qatar's Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani on Thursday came after he met the emir of Kuwait, whom he thanked for his vigorous yet thus far unsuccessful mediation.
In a tweet through his official Twitter page, Trump wrote, "Together, we will show the world that the forces of destruction and extremism are NO MATCH for the BLESSINGS of PROSPERITY and PEACE!" "I think it's something that's going to get solved fairly easily", Trump said. I think the Palestinians would like to see it happen. Today, Kuwait hosts some 13,500 American troops, many at Camp Arifjan south of Kuwait City, which also is home to the forward command of U.S. Army Central.
