Trump discussed 'Mutual Defense Treaty' between Israel, U.S. with Netanyahu | JPost |

Israel and the United States are discussing a mutual defense pact, US President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday.

Trump's tweet comes three days ahead of Israel's election on Tuesday. Haaretz reported last week that Netanyahu is looking for a dramatic gesture from the US president that would return him to office following the September 17 poll.

Netanyahu responded using the official Prime Minister of Israel twitter account, saying, "Thank you my dear friend President @realDonaldTrump. The Jewish State has never had a greater friend in the White House.

I look forward to our meeting at the UN to advance a historic Defense Treaty between the United States and Israel," he concluded.

While the idea of a US-Israel defense pact has been discussed on and off for several decades, it has re-emerged in recent months.  Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) broached the proposal in June at a dinner hosted by the Endowment for Middle East Truth, saying he wanted Israel to be added to the list of countries with which the US has treaty obligations.
