Trump Will Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital If Elected

Washington, – US Republican nominee Donald Trump has pledged to recognize Jerusalem as the “undivided capital” of Israel if elected president as he met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in New York.

Trump and Netanyahu met on Sunday at Trump’s residence behind closed doors. After the 90-minute meeting at Trump Tower, Netanyahu also paid a visit to the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, who is staying at the W New York Hotel in Union Square.

While the media was not allowed in to the Trump-Netanyahu meeting, the Republican’s campaign issued a statement, saying that Trump pledged to develop “extraordinary strategic, technological, military and intelligence cooperation between the two countries” if elected president.

Apparently, to cement the “unbreakable bond” and “special relationship” that Israel and US enjoy, Trump said he would seek to revise the US official stance on the status of Jerusalem.
