Report: Trump to Visit Israel in May

Posted by Andrew Friedman/TPS on April 26, 2017

US President Donald J. Trump has scheduled a visit to Israel next month, according to a report by Israel’s Channel Two.

The visit would be Trump’s first to the Holy Land and the first presidential visit since President Barack Obama visited in March, 2013. It would also be a change to a relatively recent presidential trend–Presidents Obama and George W. Bush both visited Israel during their second terms in office, whereas Trump will have been in office for less than six months.

Trump will be the sixth sitting US president to visit Israel. Presidents Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter each held talks in Jerusalem during the 1970s, while President Bill Clinton came a record four times, and Obama visited twice, including for the funeral of the late President Shimon Peres.
