Extreme incompetence! This is what happens when you hire your airhead son in law to run foreign policy.

You might as well drink the real thing than something aged in its barrels.

Now it begins to looks like it may not just be incompetence. Jared Kushner was trying to get a loan from Qataris to his family business to bail him out of a horrible real estate deal he made to buy 666 Fifth Avenue. Apparently the Qataris didn't give him the money.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-07-11/kushner-cos-sought-qatar-funds-as-jared-advised-trump

A few months before President Donald Trump encouraged Saudi Arabia and others to blockade Qatar, the real estate business owned by the family of his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, sought a substantial investment from one of the Gulf State country’s wealthiest and most politically influential figures, according to a spokesman for Kushner Cos.

The talks were about a possible cash infusion of $500 million for the Kushners’ financially challenged high rise at 666 Fifth Ave. in Manhattan. The Intercept first reported the negotiations, which were later confirmed by the Kushner spokesman.

The two sides had tentatively agreed on a deal that would have provided Kushner Cos. $500 million in return for a stake in the building, which was slated to be renovated and expanded, but that planned investment was contingent on other financing, the Intercept reported. In March, when Chinese insurance company Anbang Insurance Group Co. ended discussions about a potential investment in 666 Fifth Ave., negotiations with Al Thani also stalled.



So put the two pieces together: Kushner's loan from Qatar falls through, and Kushner pushes Trump to take a hard line on Qatar, going against his Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense. This is corruption of the India variety.
