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:
I have decided to postpone my trip to Israel and to schedule my meeting with @Netanyahu at a later date after I become President of the U.S.

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?

So lots of tough talk, but too scared to actually back it up in front of people? I am SHOCKED. https://t.co/GGRrLXjEcz
