U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman told The New York Times that Israel has the right to annex parts of the West Bank. In April, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a campaign promise to annex the territory. Before becoming ambassador, Friedman worked as Trump’s bankruptcy lawyer and had no diplomatic experience. His comments came just two days after five Democratic senators, including 2020 hopefuls Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, introduced a resolution condemning an Israeli plan to annex the occupied West Bank.
