United States President Donald Trump is expected to visit Israel at the end of May, a delegation of 25 American officials to arrive tomorrow, Thursday, in Israel to prepare for the president’s visit.
Reports were released on Wednesday confirming that President Trump will travel to Israel with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner who serves as Trump’s special advisor on the Middle East.
While the specific days for the president’s visit have not been provided or officially confirmed by the White House, Trump is expected to participate in the annual NATO summit to be held on May 25th in Brussels.
Reports also confirmed that United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, will visit Israel in June. It has not been confirmed whether her visit will come directly following President Trumps.
