Trump Receives Standing Ovations During Speech at Israel Museum


President Donald Trump received multiple standing ovations during a speech on Tuesday at the Israel Museum.

Trump spoke before the crowd with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu next to him.

Trump gave his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives Monday night in the bombing in Manchester, England. He then vowed that the United States will continue to support Israel.

"I make this promise to you: my administration will always stand with Israel," Trump said to applause.

Trump also called out terrorist groups in the Middle East who oppose Israel, as well as Iran.

"Iran's leaders routinely call for Israel's destruction," Trump said. "Not with Donald J. Trump, believe me."

Netanyahu nodded during the ovation and could be seen saying something to Trump.

Trump additionally spoke of working for peace between Israelis and Palestinians and praised Netanyahu. As has happened throughout Trump's trip to Israel and speaking appearances with Netanyahu, the leaders referred to each other by their first names as a sign of the friendship and closeness between the two leaders.

"My meeting with my very good friend, Benjamin, I can tell you also that he is reaching for peace. He wants peace," Trump said.
