Outside Influencers: Salem and Rima Al-Sabah

by Editorial

Salem Al-Sabah, Ambassador of Kuwait
Rima Al-Sabah, Goodwill Ambassador, U.N. High Commission for Refugees
It was hardly surprising that President Trump’s first – and, so far, only – social visit to a foreign embassy would be to attend an event hosted by the Al-Sabahs. The affable ambassador, who has been at his post since 2001, has proven his longevity across both sides of the aisle. Rima Al-Sabah, a former journalist and goodwill ambassador for the U.N. Refugee Agency, is without question a leading Washington hostess. Further solidifying their ties to the man in the White House, the Embassy of Kuwait has held its national day celebration at the Trump Hotel in Washington for two years running.
