Peace to Prosperity: A Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People, commonly known as the Trump peace plan, is a proposal by the Trump administration to resolve the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. Donald Trump formally unveiled the plan in a White House press conference alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on January 28, 2020; Palestinian representatives were not invited.[1]

The plan was authored by a team led by Trump's son-in-law, Senior Advisor to the President of the United States Jared Kushner.[2]

Both the West Bank settlers' Yesha Council[3] and the Palestinian leadership rejected the plan, arguing it is too biased in favor of Israel.

The plan is divided into two parts, an economic portion and a political portion. On June 22, 2019, the Trump administration released the economic portion of the plan, titled "Peace to Prosperity". The political portion was released in late January 2020.
