I’m for Israel First’: Trump Backs Military Aid for Israel
Former president Donald Trump said he supports increasing U.S. military aid to Israel for the war in Gaza and said that Jerusalem “cannot even think about losing” the fight.
In an interview with the Washington Free Beacon on Saturday, Trump also said he has a “very good relationship” with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu — whom Trump had criticized in a recent speech.
Earlier on Saturday, Trump gave a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition forum in Las Vegas, vowing that he would “defend Western civilization from the barbarians and savages and fascists that you see now trying to do harm to our beautiful Israel.”
Trump declined to elaborate on how he would approach Iran, saying it could put him in a “bad negotiating position later on”.
Additionally, Trump told the Free Beacon that he would put aside any grievances with Netanyahu if reelected next year.
