After eight years of President Obama, Donald Trump’s inauguration could be a bottom dollar affair with little hoopla and even little celebrity appearance, and conservatives would still be cheering.
Really, most in the conservative camp are just happy to see Obama go – there’s enough there to celebrate without having to add any party distractions at all.
But Trump just dropped a name of a hoped-for guest that has grabbed plenty of ears. And not only would this guest be amazing from a media coverage perspective. He’d also be terrific from a political perspective; the message he would bring is simply this: To Israel, from America, you’ve got a friend in me.
Done guessing about the guest?
“President-elect Donald Trump’s advisers want to invite Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu to the inauguration or arrange a meeting of the two leaders before then, a source close to the transition said,” the New York Post reported, as Allen B. West picked up.
Imagine: After eight years of Obama’s disrespect and outright hostility to Israel, Trump’s message, from Day One, would resonate not just in the Jewish state, but around the world.
Again, on Allen B. West’s blog:
“‘Transition leaders led by Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner have been aggressively courting Netanyahu and want him to attend the Jan. 20 festivities, the source said.
‘There’s a plan for Trump to meet with Netanyahu,’ the source said. ‘They’re talking all the time. And Netanyahu is talking about possibly going to the inauguration.'”
Trump really couldn’t do better than that.
Obama and the Democrats can keep their Beyonce. Trump could very well ring in his presidency with one of the world’s most important political figures, and certainly America’s most crucial political allies.
Still waiting confirmation, but even extending the invitation is a sign of only good things to come from Trump’s administration.
