Donald Trump Campaign Opens Third Israeli Office
JERUSALEM — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump opened a campaign office near Tel Aviv, his third in Israel.
The Ramat Gan office opened Wednesday near the city’s diamond district will serve central Israel, in the Gush Dan and Sharon regions, Israel National News reported Thursday.
It joins offices in Jerusalem and Modiin. A fourth office is scheduled to be opened in the West Bank, according to the report.
“Offices are being opened, but more importantly we are getting dozens of inquiries from Americans and Israelis eager to join in the campaign,” Republicans Overseas Israel said late Wednesday in a post on its Facebook page.
The Trump campaign plans to expand its operations in Israel, with up to five campaign offices throughout the country, according to the report.
There are believed to be hundreds of thousands of American Israelis who are eligible to vote in the U.S. election, according to Israeli news reports. Many come from states with a high number of electoral votes or from swing states such as Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and California.
Republican officials estimate that 85 percent of American voters living in Israel will vote for Trump, according to reports.
A Hebrew-language Trump campaign poster released earlier this month reads “Trump: In Israel’s interest.”
