Referring to a conversation with an Israeli official, Conway said that “if you look at the difference of what’s reported and the reality on the ground in Israel, they feel that these conversations couldn’t even be had without the last three and a half years of President Trump being the best friend to Israel, to quote [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, that Israel has ever had.”
Conway then listed a number of Trump’s pro-Israel moves, saying, “Whether it’s making good on the promise of eight presidents, including President Trump … Republican and Democratic presidents all promised to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and he’s the first one to make good on that promise.”
Trump “also recognized the Golan Heights,” she said, adding, “he has tried to bring peace to the Middle East in many different ways.”
The president “wants to be an agent for peace,” she said.
With regard to the ongoing White House meetings on Israel’s sovereignty bid, Conway said that she’d leave it up to the president to make any announcements on the issue.
“We are having conversations, there are conversations being had. Obviously, the president will have an announcement. He’s talked about this in the past, and I’ll leave it to him to give you a big announcement,” she said.
