In December, Trump announced that Jason Greenblatt will be his “special representative for international negotiations.”
He is believed to be Trump’s negotiator for all matters Cuba. Greenblatt has worked with Trump as the executive vice president and chief legal officer for all of the president’s businesses for at least the past two decades.
Greenblatt said in the statement, “My philosophy, in both business and in life, is that bringing people together and working to unite, rather than to divide, is the strongest path to success. I truly believe that this approach is one that can yield results for the United States in matters all over the world.”
According to a report in BuzzFeed, Greenblatt and his family run both Triplets4ACause.com and InspireConversation.com. Last April, the Triplets4ACause site posted an article calling for teens in US and Cuba to come together. “We are of Cuban heritage – our grandfather was born and raised there — and we are seeking to form deeper connections with Cuban teens by communicating, sharing experiences and bonding,” the post reads.
And in 2014, InspireConversation asked readers to watch President Obama’s speech announcing the restoration of ties with Cuba, referring it as part of a “fascinating time in history.”
Greenblatt himself traveled to Cuba between 2012 and 2013, Businessweek reported in July, to scout future investment potentials for Trump’s company.
Mr. Greenblatt received his J. D. degree in 1992 from the New York University School of Law. Following law school, Jason worked for Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson before joining the Trump Organization. Jason is a frequent lecturer and public speaker about a variety of topics. Jason has been an Adjunct Professor of Management at Yeshiva University where he taught a course entitled “Real Estate 101: The Anatomy of a Real Estate Deal.”
