The president also plans to appoint Susan Levine and Martin Oliner, vice president of the American Zionist Movement and president of Religious Zionists of America, to the council.

In 2014, Levine’s family donated $25 million to the USHMM, the largest gift in the museum’s history.

In the past few months, Trump has made numerous appointments to the council, mostly consisting of his allies.
