Yesterday we reported that Donald Trump was headed to Israel to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on December 28.

But according to Trump this morning, the trip is off:

Trump gave no reason for the cancellation, but Netanyahu did criticize Trump’s plan to temporarily band Muslims from the U.S. Could the two be related?

We’ll update as soon as we know more.

Editor’s note: A typo has been corrected in the headline.
