White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner canceled his interview with MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell as he continues to proclaim the historic peace agreement between Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain.
Kushner has hit the media circle since the signing of the Abraham Accords, as he is largely credited with conducting Middle East peace talks on behalf of the Trump administration.
However, Mitchell told his viewers on Wednesday that despite having scheduled his interview on his show days in advance, Kushner canceled just hours before he was set to appear on air.

“We had planned to have White House senior adviser Jared Kushner on our program today, a look that had been booked for several days and widely promoted,” Mitchell began. “This morning, the White House informed us that Mr Kushner’s schedule had been reshuffled and that he had to cancel. It’s unfortunate. I had, of course, planned to ask him about the significant, historic White House breakthrough between Israel and two Arab nations that he helped mediate. ”
NBC News’ foreign affairs chief later suggested, though he briefly stopped for an accusation, that Kushner, who canceled his interview, might have been linked to ABC News town hall, President Trump attended Tuesday night.
However, the canceled interview also followed Mitchell’s reporting of the Abraham agreements on “NBC Nightly News,” which seemed to downplay foreign policy performance.

“With pomp and circumstance, the president heralds the first Arab nations to recognize Israel since 1994,” Mitchell reported. “Both countries have quietly treated Israel for years and shared intelligence against Iran, a common enemy.”
She continued: “But today’s agreements open the doors to trade, travel and tourism. But it is not peace in the Middle East.”
She went on to describe how Palestinians were “abandoned by their Arab neighbors” and how they were left “powerless to do anything but protest.”
Mitchell called Trump and Netanyahu, whom she described as “two fought political leaders,” the “big winners” of the deal.

“And the president can portray himself as a peacemaker, he says worthy of a Nobel Prize 49 days before the election,” Mitchell concluded his report.
The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
