This Oct. 24, 2016 photo, shows part of the Israeli settlement of Beit El, near the West Bank city of Ramallah. Tax records show the family of U.S. president-elect Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Israeli settlement institutions in the West Bank in recent years. Trump has said Kushner, a top confidant of Trump and an Orthodox Jew, could help broker a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. The donations by Kushner's parents' foundation, co-directed by Kushner, could cast doubt about his ability to serve as a peace negotiator between the parties. (AP Photo/Nasser Nasser)JERUSALEM (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump's son-in-law co-directs a family foundation that has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Jewish settlement organizations in the West Bank, according to tax records.
