Trump: The Republican platform is most pro-Israel of all time [View all]

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4828377,00.html

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has referred to the new Republican Party platform, set to be adopted at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next week, as the “most pro-Israel of all time!”

Trump made this statement on Thursday via his Twitter account. He has additionally announced that he will make his choice of running mate known on Friday. Former Speaker of the House of Representative Newt Gingrich and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie are among the candidates to run as Trump’s VP.

The new platform, which has been approved by representatives of the Republican Party, has been amended to take out the party’s support of a two-state solution. A mention of Palestine has also been taken out, according to CNN, which managed to get hold of a copy of the platform’s draft. In addition, the new platform mentions an undivided Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.


Will Nothingyahoo side with the Republicans again like he did last time?
