When the news media was brought in at the end of his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem today, Pres. Trump took a moment to clear something up about his meeting with Russian diplomats earlier this month.
After a week’s worth of reporting about what was said, and what damage it might have done, Pres. Trump said unequivocally today, “I never mentioned the word or the name Israel, never mentioned it, during that conversation. They were all saying I did. So you had another story wrong.”
