Trump lobbied Kerry to be Mideast envoy – ‘I’d solve Arab-Israeli conflict in 2 weeks’

Donald Trump, the Republican presidential hopeful, lobbied then-candidate John Kerry to be his envoy to the Middle East during the latter’s failed bid for the White House in 2004, according to the Internet site BuzzFeed.

According to a Trump biography, the real estate mogul, who has taken the lead in polling among GOP voters by running a controversial campaign that some have accused of anti-immigrant race-baiting, bragged to Kerry that it would take him just two weeks to resolve the Israeli-Arab conflict.

"You know how to negotiate. You’d be the best person to settle the Arab-Israeli conflict,” Kerry is said to have told Trump in the book No Such Thing as Over-Exposure: Inside the Life and Celebrity of Donald Trump.
