Donald Trump is offering his support for Israel to continue new construction of settlements in the West Bank.
“[I] think Israel should have, they really have to keep going. They have to keep moving forward,” the Republican presidential candidate said in an interview with the Daily Mail published Tuesday, THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER. “No, I don’t think there should be a pause.”
Trump explained his reasoning had to do with the continued violence by Palestinians.
“Missiles were launched into Israel, and Israel, I think, never was properly treated by our country. I mean, do you know what that is, how devastating that is?” he said in the interview conducted Monday. “Who would put up with that? Who would stand for it?”
