Trump pledges to be 'neutral guy' in Israel-Palestinian negotiations

Source: CNN

In an exchange about the potential for a peace agreement, anchor Joe Scarborough asked the Republican front-runner, "Whose fault do you think it is?"

"I don't want to get into it for a different reason, Joe, because if I do win, there has to be a certain amount of surprise, unpredictability," he said at a town hall Wednesday, adding that by declining to tip his hand, he would be in a better position to negotiate.

"Let me be sort of a neutral guy, let's see what -- I'm going to give it a shot. It would be so great," Trump said.

The remark contrasts with the many Republicans -- and some Democrats -- who often pledge unequivocal support for Israel.

6. He's already considered weak there

 

He was pro-choice a few years ago, and probably still is.

5. I have come full circle and now believe Trump is running one of the most genius

 

campaigns I've ever seen. He is a master troll. He trolled the heck out of liberals early, he's recently started trolling the heck out of conservatives, and somehow its working for him... this guy may actually be the next president, at which point I fully expect him to troll at the international level. I have to admit the thought of him trolling Kim Jong Un is pretty funny (just please don't fuck with Putin)
