Netanyahu was on Capitol Hill on Tuesday during his visit to Washington for the 2018 American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). 

The prime minister praised the president in his AIPAC address on Tuesday. 

"It is always great to be here, but as I told President Trump yesterday, it's especially great to be in America's capital now that he has recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital," the prime minister said. "Thank you, President Trump, for that historic decision."

Trump met with Netanyahu on Monday and revealed that he was considering traveling to Israel for the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in May. 

Netanyahu's visit to Washington comes as he grapples with a corruption probe back in Israel.

The prime minister is accused of accepting bribes and of attempting to persuade Israel’s second largest newspaper to give him positive coverage in exchange for damaging a rival paper.
