Last week, Trump unveiled an Israel policy that expressed skepticism of a two-state solution between Israel and Palestinians and pushed for the U.S. to exceed its memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Israel.
"Further, Congress will not be limited to give support greater than that provided by the MOU if it chooses to do so. Israel and the United States benefit tremendously from what each country brings to the table — the relationship is a two way street," the policy stated.
The billionaire has repeatedly criticized President Obama regarding the administration's current relationship with Israel.
Trump has also voiced his opposition to the nuclear agreement reached between Iran, the United States and international powers in 2015. He has vowed to reverse the deal upon entering the White House.
