Netanyahu, Trump May Meet Before Israel Election, Newspaper Says

(Bloomberg) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may meet with U.S. President Donald Trump at the end of the March, about two weeks before Israeli elections, Israel Hayom newspaper reported Wednesday.

Netanyahu is expected to travel to Washington at that time for the annual meeting of AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, where he traditionally speaks, the newspaper said. While people close to the prime minister said the meeting with Trump isn’t certain, if it does take place, it would be held at the White House, the newspaper said.

Netanyahu and Trump may also meet this month at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the newspaper said.

The White House had no comment for the newspaper.
