The Times of Israel reports: Donald Trump hasn’t ruled out visiting Israel before the election.

Speaking Wednesday at a news conference in Florida, where the Republican presidential nominee is campaigning, Trump responded to a reporter who asked whether he was going to Israel and noted that nominees traditionally take foreign tours between their nomination and the election.

“It’s a tradition, but I’m not traditional,” said Trump, a billionaire developer and reality TV star. But regarding Israel, he said, “I don’t know, I haven’t set my schedule.”

He said he had support from Israel and “I back Israel 100 percent.”

Trump added that “[President] Obama, in my opinion, is the single worst thing politically that could happen to Israel.”
