Her first meeting was with President Rueven Rivlin who thanks Haley. “With you, Israel is no longer alone at the UN, and no longer the UN’s punching bag,” Rivlin said.

Haley also met with PM Benjamin Netanyahu where Netanyahu said, “President Trump and you, I think, have changed the discourse, have drawn new standards, and everybody’s taking up, and that’s great,” Netanyahu said. “Again, I felt that the UN would collapse, you know, that whole scaffolding of lies would just collapse. I think you’ve put in that simple word, truth.”

A special section created for Haley’s trip to the Western Wall

During her trip Haley visited the Western Wall where she was escorted by Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, the Rabbi of the Western Wall.

Of the Western Wall, Haley has said it is Judaism’s holiest site and located in the Old City or Jerusalem and should be part of Israel.

“I believe the Western Wall is part of Israel and I think that that is how we’ve always seen it and that’s how we should pursue it,” Haley told the media prior to Trump’s arrival to Israel. “We’ve always thought the Western Wall was part of Israel.”


Haley is also scheduled to visit Tel Aviv, the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in Jerusalem, and tour Israel’s borders with Syria and Gaza while being accompanied by IDF officials.

This trip is Haley’s first time in Israel. Haley a former Republican governor from South Carolina, has been speaking out forcefully in support of the Israel and has legislation in place to target the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement.
