Trump ‘Postpones’ Israel Trip, Until ‘After I Become President’
It could be a very long time until The Donald goes to Israel.
Netanyahu had on Wednesday confirmed he would meet the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination to succeed Barack Obama in the White House despite an international outcry over his suggestion that Muslims should be banned from entering the US.
Several hours after confirming the meeting, Netanyahu’s office tweeted that the prime minister rejected Trump’s comments about Muslims but had agreed to meet any US presidential candidate who visited Israel.
“This policy does not represent an endorsement of any candidate or his or her views. Rather, it is an expression of the importance that PM Netanyahu attributes to the strong alliance between Israel and the United States,” the tweets said.
