President Donald Trump spoke with Jewish leaders on his “High Holy Day Conference Call,” an annual phone call tradition started by President Obama before Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
During the call, the president highlighted his accomplishments over the past year, including upholding his promise to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Yerushalayim, the deportation of Nazi war criminal Jakiw Palij, withdrawing the US from the United Nations Human Rights Council – citing its anti-Israel bias – and pulling out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
Trump also noted his administration’s decision to withhold funds earmarked for the Palestinian Authority until PA chief Mahmoud Abbas agrees to renew negotiations with Israel.
During the call President Trump also mentioned his family ties to Judaism, telling the Rabbis, “I have a personal connection to Judaism: Ivanka, Jared, and their kids.”
