He will then spend a week racing against the clock to finalize the preparations for Trump’s visit, on May 22.
This week, Friedman met with Trump to receive the president’s final instructions and his best wishes for his new job.
Friedman’s own views differ utterly from the president’s on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, but the new ambassador, whose loyalty to Trump is unassailable, intends to leave his personal opinions back home in America.
