Trump upbeat on Israel's economy
US real estate tycoon Donald Trump, who plans to erect the tallest building in Israel in Ramat Gan, has praised the country's strong economic potential.
"Israel is one of my favorite places in the world, it is a great country," the billionaire said in a videophone interview at Saturday night's opening session of the annual Globes Israel Business Conference in Tel Aviv. "I am a good businessman and I have tremendous confidence in the strength and potential of the Israeli economy, although I know the country has had to go through a lot in recent months."
Trump has teamed up with Crescent Heights Investments to replace the historic Elite candy factory in Ramat Gan with the 70-story luxury Trump Plaza Tower.
Trump is also planning to erect a luxury hotel bearing his name on a seaside cliff in Netanya.
"In real estate, everything is a matter of timing," said Donald Trump Jr., the Trump organization's vice president, who also took part in the videophone interview together with his sister Ivanka. "Binyamin Netanyahu's reforms and economic policies set a precedent for the economy, which gave the real estate market a big boost."
Ivanka Trump, vice president of the Trump organization, said the Trumps saw great potential in the Israeli real estate market. "We think Israel is a good investment. We see a lot of potential in the real estate market and are planning to increase our investments here," she said.
Ivanka Trump and Trump Jr. said they would be coming to Israel in about two months to see their projects. "I will be coming to Israel shortly afterward. I love Israel and I will be coming to Israel a lot," said Donald Trump.
It's all in the timing...
lol, yep its all about timing the market

Trump's gotta casino in Atlantic city he wants ta buyback
the trump organization thinks Israel is a winner...only the anitsemetic a-holes like jimmah carter and james baker don't!!!!
also...how is it that ivanka is so hot ...after all she is the spawn of the donald....must be her mother's genes!!!!
This one really surprises me- Not sure what nationality Trump is, but being liberal (I beleive he is?) I'd think he'd adopt the "Israel is the cause of all the world's problems" mantra- I guess it's possible Trump praises Israel, because he's profitting over there-
Don't you mean religion? Must be a secret Jew. Or controlled by Jews. Or being blackmailed by Jews.
The same for Warren Buffett.
yeah that's what I mwenat- thought of it after I posted lol- Yeah, them evil Jews- manipulating powerful people like trump who apparently are too stupid to think for themselves & make money- Trump may be a lib, and he may be workjing in Israel, BUT he is a very smart/ruthless business man who makes sound descions all on hiws own
But of course Jew-Hatred will always accuse anyoen succesful of being pawns of the Jews.
Trump's people made a sizeable contribution to technical education scholarship funds in Israel to ingratiate themselves with the businesses and employees in the technology industrial park in Ramat Gan.
But in the end we know what this is all about, Ivana Trump is building the most luxurious skyscraper in Beirut right now, and Donald had to go join the Israelis and make an even bigger and more luxurious skyscraper in Israel to make sure Ivana knows who the boss is.
War of the Trumps!
The funny part is this is a family feud between Ivana and Donald,
check out Ivana's building in Beirut:
One must ponder how heavily this tallest building in Israel will be insured? Further, how big a killing can be made through such insurance policies? Obviously it will have a great big bullseye put on every terrorist map exactly where this building is placed.
