Will Israel Finally Have a Friend in The White House with Trump?

I caught a short clip on United with Israel that has Donald Trump say something one doesn't usually hear from American leaders. The Clintons and Obama have been heard to say many times that they'll "stand by Israel" or have its "back," but here Trump says something else:


"We will protect Israel 100%."



There's a big difference between those terms/phrases.

So far it's not official, but there's talk that the Trump team wants to invite Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to the Inauguration. So far it's just talk, but considering the amount of pro-Israel Jews Donald Trump has appointed to important positions, anything is possible.

I wonder how long it will take, if ever, for Trump to seriously reduce the amount of support the American Government gives to the PA-Palestinian Authority.

The Trump team has a lot of work to do to fix things in terms of Israel and our security.

Rest assured that Trumps VERY Jewish advisors, and Hashem Himself will direct Donald Trump every step of the way. He may be uneducated and naive at this point, but that will matter not. These advisors and Hashem himself will enable Trump and the Israeli government to start moving in the correct direction! We will see this happen!
