While Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu was on his trip to New York for the United Nations General Assembly meeting, he met with Donald Trump on Sunday morning. The information released by Trump’s campaign is that the two parties had a discussion on “military assistance, security and regional stability.”
The two also “discussed at length Israel’s successful experience with a security fence that helped secure its borders.” This is important because of Trump’s resolve to build a wall between Mexico and the United States.
The statement released by Trump’ campaign reads in part: “Mr. Trump recognized that Israel and its citizens have suffered far too long on the front lines of Islamic terrorism. He agreed with Prime Minister Netanyahu that the Israeli people want a just and lasting peace with their neighbors, but that peace will only come when the Palestinians renounce hatred and violence and accept Israel as a Jewish State.
“Finally, Mr. Trump acknowledged that Jerusalem has been the eternal capital of the Jewish People for over 3000 years, and that the United States, under a Trump administration, will finally accept the long-standing Congressional mandate to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel.”
Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu also discussed Israel’s biotech economy and its cyber-defense advances.
The Israeli Prime Minister was set to meet Hillary Clinton later on Sunday.
