Trump Would Review Iran Deal Rather Than Cancelling It: Adviser

Detailing the conversation in a Facebook post on Saturday night, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the evening's phone conversation between the two wives as "heartfelt and warm".

A campaign spokesman said at the time that Jerusalem was also discussed and Trump intends to recognize the city as the "undivided capital of the State of Israel".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu congratulated Donald Trump on his presidential victory, calling him a "true friend of the State of Israel".

"I am confident that the longstanding friendship and alliance between the United States and Israel will remain strong during Mr. Trump's term in office". United States foreign policy has been always characterized by a bias in Israel's favor. Where does Donald Trump stand on Israel?

Last month, the U.S. State Department condemned Israeli plans to build 300 additional units in the settlements, saying they "would further damage the prospects for a two-state solution".

For Netanyahu, whose relationship with US President Barack Obama began to sour over continued settlement expansion, Trump's policies could push the reset button on US-Israeli relations and give him the chance to pursue his own agenda while the world looks elsewhere.

Both Palestine and Israel view the city as their capital, and for security reasons USA presidents Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Barack Obama vetoed the measure. "There will be less pressure from Trump, so we should be building much more in our capital", the newspaper quoted Sa'ar as saying. Following the September meetings, the prime minister said "it doesn't matter which of them will be elected, USA support of Israel will remain strong, our pact will remain strong and will even get stronger in the coming years".

Throughout his campaign, Trump consistently attacked the deal signed by President Obama and essentially pledged to cast it aside.

"There are many signs that the Trump administration could be very accommodating when it comes to getting along with the current Israeli government", said Shmuel Rosner, a senior fellow at the Jewish People Policy Institute.

"There are many challenges that lie before you as president - at home and around the world".

President Reuven Rivlin also welcomed Trump's victory.

However, a high-ranking Palestinian official said that "we are anxious because we have here someone who has been completely unpredictable, a loose cannon, and also because this is not an issue just for the Palestinians but for the rest of the world".

"We are also determined to prevent it from bringing about the establishment of Shiite militias, which it is organizing, and of course the arming of Hezbollah with risky weapons aimed at us", he said.
