Trump Adviser Reportedly Meets Senior Israeli Officials in Jerusalem

David Friedman, an adviser to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, visited Jerusalem and met with senior officials from the Prime Minister’s Office.

According to a report in Haaretz, a senior government official told the newspaper that Friedman had sought the meeting and that to maintain balance, an adviser to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had traveled to the United States for meetings with advisers to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Friedman, a Jewish lawyer who has represented the Republican candidate in bankruptcy matters, also reportedly met with members of the Israeli branch of Republicans Overseas, during which he was given an overview of the group’s plan to get Americans living in Israel to vote for Trump in November.

The senior official said that Friedman’s meeting with Netanyahu’s advisers concerned diplomatic and security matters and that he was presented with Israel’s positions on various issues.
