Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tells the country's largest pro-Israel organization he will pursue a stronger alliance with Israel if elected president, as a protester is escorted from the arena. Rough Cut (no reporter narration)
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump vowed on Monday to pursue a strong U.S. alliance with Israel if elected president in November and said he would resist any attempt by the United Nations to impose its will on the Jewish state. In a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Trump said he would side with Israel, a close U.S. ally, in any negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians. "The Palestinians must come to the table knowing that the bond between the United States and Israel is unbreakable," Trump told the pro-Israel lobbying group. Trump also questioned the role of the United Nations in the peace process, saying any attempt by the international body to impose a Middle East agreement would be a disaster. As he spoke to the group in Washington, D.C., a protester was escorted from the arena, in what has become a regular occurrence at his rallies.
