“I love Israel and honor and respect the Jewish tradition, and it’s important we have a president who feels the same way,” Trump said in a minute-long video message.

“My administration will stand side-by-side with the Jewish people and Israel’s leaders to continue strengthening the bridges that connect, not only Jewish Americans and Israelis, but also all Americans and Israelis,” he added. “Together we will stand up to enemies, like Iran, bent on destroying Israel and her people. Together we will make America and Israel safe again.”

Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, also recorded a video message for the event, and spoke about the common threats Israel and the US face.

“Donald Trump and I stand with Israel because Israel’s fight is our fight, because Israel’s cause is our case,” Pence said. “Like the US, Israel is hated by terrorists and the failed states that support them. She is hated by too many progressives because she is successful and her people are free.”
