GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump was booed by members of the Republican Jewish Coalition in Washington, DC on Thursday, when he failed to commit to recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, The Weekly Standard reported.

“I wanna wait until I meet with Bibi [Netanyahu],” Trump said, when asked if, as president, he would push for this policy.

His answer angered some people in the audience, including a man in the third row whom Trump called a “wise guy,” telling the heckler, “Do me a favor, just relax. Ok? You’ll like me very much, believe me…Don’t worry about it, you’re gonna be very happy.”

Explaining his stance on the topic, Trump said, “If you’re gonna make a deal, you can’t go in with the attitude, ‘We’re gonna shove it down [your throat].’ You gonna go in and get it, and do it and do it nicely so everyone’s happy.”

Earlier, Trump quipped that the audience likes him because his daughter, Ivanka Trump, is Jewish, the Miami Herald reported. He added, “The only bad news is that I can’t get her on Saturday,” referring to her observance of the Sabbath.

    Give the man a break. It’s either Trump or Hillary and Hummus the jihadist. That would not be much different than Obama and Valerie. Trumps Jewish daughter will calm him down and you can most certainly be guaranteed Jerusalem will be Israels capital. It will probably be one of the first things he does as President. If the Jews in America turn against Trump it will not be long before they have knifes at their throats and will fear going out to restaurants. I do not think the Jews in America realize the left has created a subculture which is now becoming main stream who have the same attitude towards Jews as the Nazis, if not worse when you combine it with Islam. If things do not change in America it will not besafe for Jews to walk the streets. So boo Trump at your own risk, it will be your last stupid act of defiance before facing Obamas shadow warriors.

    The problem with Triump (besides his general manner and UN-preparedness), is he is as the 1960’s song lyric by Bob Dylan goes……”the answer my friend , is blowin’ in the wind”….
