Not His Usual Rally

U.S. President Donald Trump gave up on addressing the Knesset because he was concerned that lawmakers would heckle him, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein revealed on Tuesday.


"You should take into account that because of five, six, seven members, who care more about 20 seconds of mock fame than about the honor of the Knesset, our parliament and of Israel, this didn't happen," Edelstein said, speaking at the nearly empty Knesset plenum.

According to the speaker, the plans first called for Trump to indeed address the Knesset, but once it was made clear that the Israeli hosts could not ensure that he would not be interrupted, this was taken off the table.

Will he have to hold a rally in Trumpland when he gets back to rebalance his bruised ego?

...but hey, do what you want...you will anyway.
