Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu met with Donald Trump in the Trump Tower for over one an half hours. They discussed Trump’s desire to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel as well as Israel’s successful use of a border fence with their neighbors. Trump made it clear that the onus was on the “Palestinian” Arabs to prove they want peace.
According to statements put out by the Trump campaign, Trump said that he would “finally accept the longstanding congressional mandate to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel.”
The meeting between the two is of particular interest as Trump continues to climb against Clinton making the presidential contest very close. A Trump presidency is seen as having a very positive effect on Israel’s standing and ability to finally break free of the two state paradigm. Trump has been quoted as saying that Israel should “continue to build” in communities in Judea and Samaria, something that renders the “2-State Solution” finished.
Bibi Netanyahu is slated to also meet with Hillary Clinton on his trip.
