WATCH: Trump proclaims ‘ancient and eternal’ Jewish ties to the Holy Land

President Donald Trump, speaking at a joint press conference with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem Tuesday, proclaimed the historical connection of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel, invoking the reign of King David.

Trump then continued with his theme of demanding that Muslim leaders stop supporting terror, assuring Jewish leaders that he is firmly committed to “halting” Iran’s support of terrorists and militias, in a clear reference to the Iranian government’s arming and funding of Hezbollah and Hamas.
