U.S. President Donald Trump with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, May 23, 2017.

US President Donald Trump and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this weekend discussed the possibility of a mutual defense pact.

Trump made the announcement in a tweet – as he often does – on Saturday morning.


Netanyahu responded by thanking the president – likewise via Twitter – on Saturday night after the conclusion of the Sabbath in Israel. In a second, follow up tweet, he wrote: “Together, we will continue full steam ahead with our common battle against terrorism,” adding, “Congratulations on your latest success against Bin Laden’s son. God Bless America. God bless Israel.”

The two men are expected to further discuss the matter on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly later this month.
