Yesterday before leaving on the week long trip, Netanyahu said said his trip to the United States is “a very important visit,” prior to boarding his plane.
“I am going there on behalf of all citizens of Israel, as I understand it, to achieve three goals: Security, peace and economic prosperity for all citizens of Israel, for our country,” Netanyahu said.
“I will meet with a very great friend of Israel, and my personal friend, U.S. President Donald Trump. First of all, I will thank him for the historic decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem on Independence Day. This is a very big present for our country,” Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu said he will discuss several issues with Trump, the most important being Iran: “its aggression, its nuclear aspirations, and its aggressive actions in the Middle East in general and on our borders, all of them, in particular.”
