President Trump isn’t the only person within his administration sending out an unfiltered stream of messages on Twitter. Middle East adviser Jason Greenblatt seems to be following his lead, live-tweeting updates from a trip to Israel and the Palestinian territories this week.

Greenblatt’s social media presence didn’t win praise from everyone - among them the West Bank settlement leader David Ha’ivri. “Stop by for a couple of days, meet with some names.

Others critiqued his choice of kosher food options.
