Ex-Donald Rumsfeld Aide to Land Middle East Policy Job in Trump Administration

A former adviser to neoconservative darling Donald Rumsfeld is slated to become one of the highest ranking policy officials for Middle Eastern affairs in US President Donald Trump’s administration, according to a new report.

David Schenker, a director at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, is expected to be named assistant secretary of state for near eastern affairs, the Hill reported Thursday, citing senior administration officials. Schenker was an adviser to former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld from 2002 to 2006, when the US began its years-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
