Trump to host Netanyahu at White House

Combined Shape

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump will host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (neh-ten-YAH’-hoo) at the White House next week.

The president will welcome Netanyahu for his third White House visit since Trump took office, the White house said Wednesday. They will discuss Middle East issues in a meeting March 25 and Trump will host Netanyahu for dinner March 26.

Trump and Netanyahu have enjoyed a close relationship and Trump has been applauded in Israel for recognizing Jerusalem as their capital and moving the U.S. Embassy there. His administration has been working on a Middle East peace plan, but has yet to release details.

The prime minister is visiting the United States weeks before elections in Israel. His poll numbers have sagged since the announcement of a pending indictment on corruption charges.
