This is disturbing. He’s going to let foreign nations govern the decisions for the USA? CRIMINAL.
Ynetnews has reported that President-elect Donald Trump’s team met with the head of Israel’s intelligence agency, Mossad.
Yosef “Yossi” Cohen, the leader of Mossad, secretly traveled to the U.S. in order to meet with Trump and discuss issues such as the Iran nuclear deal and the ongoing civil war in Syria. They also discussed an upcoming conference in Egypt and a pending U.N. resolution submitted by New Zealand and the people of Palestine.
Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway has said that the President-elect intends to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
It was also reported that Israeli officials have asked the President-elect to speak out against President Obama and to veto a U.N. proposal that would label Israeli settlements in Palestine illegal and encourage other nations to boycott Israel until the occupation is addressed.
The meeting was reportedly organized by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Ron Dermer, who serves as Israel’s ambassador to the United States, was also present at the meeting.
Meetings between the President-elect and heads of state are fairly common. What is less common is for a President-elect, or his staff, to secretly meet with another nation’s intelligence agency. It is especially odd considering that Trump is not even willing to receive daily intelligence reports from the U.S. intelligence community.
This is far from the first time Trump has violated protocol in terms of meetings with foreign leaders. In November, he faced widespread criticism for allowing his daughter Ivanka to sit in on a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Ivanka and her husband’s presence was only discovered due to pictures taken by Japanese press outlets.
Jared Kushner was also there (and Gen. Flynn) https://t.co/480y1rWy2A pic.twitter.com/mC2tTu95i6

Shortly after that meeting, Trump met with three of his Indian business partners. The three men are building a Trump-branded apartment complex in India. The Trump children, who will manage their father’s real estate empire, were also present during the meeting.
Perhaps the most well-known and certainly controversial of Trump’s foreign ties is his relationship with Russia. Throughout the course of his campaign, Trump praised Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and has recently dismissed reports that Russia interfered in the election to help Trump.
