Change and hope are in the wind. It appears that President-elect Trump’s transition team is seeking to change course in its foreign policy even before Donald J. Trump is inaugurated at 12:00 o’clock on January 20th, 2017.
World Jewish Daily reports:
Advisors to Donald Trump want Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to attend the President-elect inauguration this month.
According to the New York Post, Trump’s son-in-law and top aide Jared Kushner, who is Jewish, is “aggressively courting” Netanyahu in hopes the prime minister will come to the ceremony.
A source within the Trump transition team told the Post that even if Netanyahu does not attend, Trump and the prime minister are in close contact and a meeting between the two men will definitely take place.
“There’s a plan for Trump to meet with Netanyahu. They’re talking all the time. And Netanyahu is talking about possibly going to the inauguration,” the Post quoted the source as saying.
Trump has taken a strongly pro-Israel stance since being elected, including a brutal criticism of President Barack Obama’s recent anti-Israel moves at the U.N.
