Israeli and American-Jewish leaders congratulated President Donald Trump on his swearing-in Friday, as the new Republican commander-in-chief promised an “America First” agenda in his inaugural speech.
“Congrats to my friend President Trump,” Netanyahu wrote on Twitter. “Look forward to working closely with you to make the alliance between Israel and the United States of America stronger than ever.”
Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon also warmly welcomed Trump, saying, “A true friend of Israel will enter the White House today. Thank you President Trump for your unequivocal support, we look forward to welcoming you to our capital of Jerusalem.”
