During the first joint press conference between President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Trump looked right into Netanyahu’s eyes and commanded him to halt the illegal expansion of Israeli borders into Palestine.

In response to a question by a reporter, President Trump, while peering straight into Netanyahu’s soul, said: “I’d like to see you hold back on settlements for a little bit.” You could feel the tension in the room when he said that.

The look of fear and surprise in Netanyahu’s face said it all, there’s a new Sheriff in town, and his name is President Trump.
