Trump greets embattled Netanyahu, signs Golan Heights proclamation

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump provided Benjamin Netanyahu both temporary refuge from ongoing scandal and a de facto campaign venue at the White House when he hosted the embattled Israeli prime minister for talks Monday.

Cementing the sense he was providing a gift to Netanyahu as his election nears, Trump signed a proclamation formally recognizing the contested Golan Heights — considered Israeli-occupied territory by the international community — as part of the state of Israel.
Trump had previewed that decision last week in a tweet, but Monday’s move formalized the policy.
