Posted on 05/02/2016 2:06:23 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather
Donald Trumps foreign policy speech has created expectations that he will match Marco Rubios pledge to stand by the commitments made by President Bush to Israels Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in Bushs letter dated 14 April 2004.
Rubio made his unequivocal pledge on 3 December 2015 at the Republican Jewish Coalition Presidential Forum during his unsuccessful race to secure the Republican Partys endorsement as its Presidential nominee:
I will revive the common-sense understandings reached in the 2004 Bush-Sharon letter and build on them to help ensure Israel has defensible borders
President Obama and his then former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did everything in their power to wriggle out of those Bush commitments despite their having been overwhelmingly endorsed by the Senate 95-3 on 23 June 2004 and by the House of Representatives 407-9 on 24 June 2004.
Trump clearly had Obama and Clintons betrayal of Israel in his sights when stating:
your friends need to know that you will stick by the agreements that you have with them. Youve made that agreement, you have to stand by it and the world will be a better place.
