Trump Cabinet News: Mike Huckabee May Be Named Ambassador To Israel After Anti-Semitic Controversy – Earlier this week, Huckabee posted a Conservative Tribune story on Facebook, falsely accusing liberal Jews of defacing a church at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, in reaction to Trump’s election. The incident actually took place in March. Neither of the two men charged in the incident was Jewish. Huckabee later apologized…U.S.-Israel relations have been strained. U.S. President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu never had a close relationship, and it was frayed further when Netanyahu accepted an invitation from then-House Speaker John Boehner to address Congress in 2015 about the Iran nuclear deal without checking with the White House first. Israel strongly opposed it. Netanyahu also made clear during the 2012 presidential race that he favored Republican Mitt Romney.
