CNN: President Trump Is Striking a Different Tone on Israel in the W.H. than He Did on the Trail

‘President Trump sounds a lot different than candidate Trump’

EXCERPT:

ZELENY (voice-over): President Trump telling Israel, 'Not so fast with settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.' The White House releasing a statement warning Israel that the expansion of existing settlements beyond their current borders may not be helpful in achieving peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Those words sounding similar to the Obama Administration's approach to the settlements."

OBAMA: "They cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land."
[clip ends]
ZELENY (voice-over): "And far different from the tone Mr. Trump took on the campaign trail."
[clip starts]
TRUMP: "Israel, our great friend and the one true democracy in the Middle East has been snubbed and criticized by an administration that lacks moral clarity."
