Asked whether he would remain neutral even after an American West Point graduate was murdered in a terrorist attack in Israel, Trump said he had to remain neutral to broker a peace deal.
 
“I will tell you, I think if we’re ever going to negotiate a peace settlement … I think it would be more helpful is as a negotiator, if I go in and say I’m pro-Israel, but at least have the other side know I’m somewhat neutral to them so that we can maybe get a deal done,” Trump said.
