Oh boy. President Donald Trump is acting like Israel is the 51st state.
He invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to visit Washington in early February during a phone call in which" they discussed the importance of strengthening the U.S.-Israeli relationship," the White House said on Sunday.
In his first call with Netanyahu since taking office on Friday, Trump stressed his "unprecedented commitment to Israel's security."
"The president and the prime minister agreed to continue to closely consult on a range of regional issues, including addressing the threats posed by Iran," the White House said in a statement.
