She plans to introduce legislation to block Dubai from owning ports in the U.S. Look at this coming from the co-sponsor of the legislation:
"I just don't believe that our ports should be handed over to foreign governments," Mr. Menendez said in an interview. Especially not to Dubai, he added, because it has a "serious and dubious history" as a transit point for terrorism.
He routinely accepts large speaking fees from Dubai and wants to
strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence and pursue racial, ethnic and religious reconciliation. President Clinton hopes and believes that participating students will return to the United States and not only encourage others to experience Dubai and other Arab States, but also share their understanding and knowledge of the Arab world with their communities.
He has spoken to AUD students about "Overcoming Cultural Differences" - unfortunately, I found no report on what he said.

Is there any hope for reconciliation between these two?

My immediate thought when I first heard that Hillary Clinton was getting involved in this, knowing that Bill Clinton had received big fees from the UAE, was that "an honest politician is one who stays bought." Apparently though, the Clinton's aren't purchased as a package.
