Former Presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney and former Vice Presidential candidate Sen. Joe Lieberman will address the inaugural Israeli American Council (IAC) National Conference in Washington next month.
The IAC’s stated mission is “to build an active and giving Israeli-American community throughout the United States in order to strengthen the State of Israel.” The number of Israeli-Americans is estimated at 500,000-800,000.
The event will mark Romney’s first formal address to the Jewish and Israeli-American community since his loss in the 2012 presidential elections, and it will be Lieberman’s first opportunity to address the Israeli-American community.
Romney has said he will not run in 2016, but not everyone believes him because he has been active on the campaign trail. Just in case he might change his mind, billionaire Donald Trump told Breitbart News, “I don’t think he should run. He had his chance and he blew it.”
One source close to Trump told the Mediate website that Trump figures that if Romney could not beat Barack Obama, he would do even worse against Hillary Clinton, who is considered a shoe-in as Democratic presidential nominee if she runs.
