GOP frontrunner Donald Trump to visit Israel
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has announced plans to visit Israel.
In a rally in Manassas, Virginia on Wednesday he announced that he will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He is expected to visit at the end of December, the Jerusalem Post reported.
“I love Israel,” Trump said. “Israel is our real strong supporter.”
Trump has expressed his support of Israel and applauded its “successful” apartheid wall. During the fourth GOP debate, Trump used the apartheid wall as a prime example of a wall that “works.”
“We will have a wall, the wall will be built, the wall will be successful. And if you don’t think walls work all you have to do is ask Israel. The wall works, believe me. Properly done. Believe me” Trump said.
Trump also called out President Barack Obama for his “lack of support” for Israel. Trump accused Obama of “hating Israel” and providing “absolutely no support” to the PM.
Trump, along with other Republican presidential candidates will be speaking at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s Presidential forum on Thursday in Washington.
