This is a HUGE change of direction from the stiff-arming Obama was giving him.
THE. LEFT. WILL. HATE. IT.
A Trump administration would signal a clear return to America’s traditionally strong support of the State of Israel.
(Make America’s relationship with Israel great again!)
He met with Prime Minister Netanyahu at Trump Tower.
Looking forward to my meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu in Trump Tower at 10:00 A.M.

This signals a turning away from the endless finger-wagging they’ve been getting for the last 8 years from politicians with a (D) after their name.
What did they discuss? According to the press release:
Mr. Trump agreed that the military assistance provided to Israel and missile defense cooperation with Israel are an excellent investment for America. Mr. Trump said that under a Trump administration, there will be extraordinary strategic, technological, military and intelligence cooperation between the two countries. Mr. Trump recognized Israel as a vital partner of the United States in the global war against radical Islamic terrorism.
They discussed at length the nuclear deal with Iran, the battle against ISIS and many other regional security concerns.
Mr. Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu discussed at length Israel’s successful experience with a security fence that helped secure its borders. They discussed Israel’s burgeoning hi-tech and biotech economy and how it has made stunning advances improving and saving lives around the world. In particular, Mr. Trump noted Israel’s emergence as a world leader in cyber defense and security and its cooperation with the United States in this regard.
…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. [emphasis added]
That sound you hear is the Left collectively crapping their pants.
Stronger together, Hillary? You mean … like America and Israel?
Yeah, we’ll take Trump, thanks.
