U.S. President Donald Trump wants to bring feuding Gulf leaders to Camp David for a show of solidarity with the United States.A potential summit of the six-country Gulf Cooperation Council in May at the prestigious presidential retreat in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains will be scuttled unless Qatar and neighbors Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are on track to resolve the nearly yearlong spat.It's not clear that the Gulf countries even want to attend such a summit, which would require leaders who have spent the last eight months bashing Qatar to put all of that aside and pose for friendly group photo ops. But if there's one trait that unifies Qatar and its neighbors, it's an unwavering desire to show they're simpatico with Trump.The countries vowed to isolate Qatar economically until it heeds their demands, but Qatar has insisted it can survive indefinitely on its own.When that failed, the U.S. stepped back, and has largely left it to Kuwait – another GCC country – to mediate.
