WASHINGTON — Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, made a rare public appearance on Monday when he spoke at the controversial opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. 

According to a White House source, Kushner was a driving force behind moving the embassy from Tel Aviv, following the administration’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. And his high-profile role at the ceremony seemed to send a clear signal that Kushner remains the face of Mideast policy in spite of a recent downgrade to his status at the White House.
