The GOP May Not Like Trump’s Stance On The Palestine-Israel Conflict

Donald Trump, already a nuisance for Republicans, just opposed one of the most important foreign policy positions of the party.

Things have now reached to point where the Republican Party would actually be relieved to watch Donald Trump lose.

The lack of support doesn’t come after what he said about Mexicans, African Americans, Muslims, women or the disabled. It comes after Trump called former Republican president George W. Bush a “liar.”

Now, the media mogul has crossed yet another line by stating his “neutral” stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"It is a very, very tough agreement to make," Trump told "Morning Joe" moderators Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. "But I will give it one hell of a shot. That I can tell you.”

When asked which side, according to him, was to blame for the decades-old mess, Trump offered the most Trump answer ever, initially saying he wouldn’t want to comment in order maintain the element of "surprise" in future negotiations — once, and if ever, he is president.

“I don't want to get into it for a different reason, Joe,” Trump said. “Because if I do win, there has to be a certain amount of surprise, unpredictability; our country has no unpredictability. If I win, I don't want to be in a position where ... the other side now says, 'We don't want Trump involved.' ... Let me be sort of a neutral guy.”

From his answer, one this is clear: Trump has no idea, whatsoever, as to how to handle the Middle East issue. However, by taking a neutral stance, he has gone against the GOP’s undying support for the State of Israel.

And that’s going to be a problem for his campaign.
