Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump met with Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu earlier this morning at Trump tower; presumably to discuss foreign policy potentialities should Trump be elected to the nation’s highest seat. From all appearances the meeting went well. Netanyahu’s office tweeted out this photo after the conclusion of the meeting:

The Trump campaign also released a statement relating what topics were discussed between the two men.
“Mr. Trump and the Prime Minister discussed the special relationship between America and Israel and the unbreakable bond between the two countries. The topics of military assistance, security and regional stability were addressed.”
According to the campaign, Donald reiterated his promise, upon becoming president, to recognize Jerusalem as “the undivided capital of the State of Israel.” While Jerusalem has been Israel’s official capital since 1950, Trump’s move would be a significant change in long-standing U.S. policy — policy that has never recognized Jerusalem in this way.
