Vice President Mike Pence spoke to the Conservative Political Action Conference Thursday evening, where he laid out the new administration’s top priorities.
Speaking to the GOP’s conservative base, Pence took a very strong position in support of the state of Israel. “I’m proud to stand with the president, who stands with our most important ally, the Jewish state,” Pence told the audience of conservative activists.
“Israel’s fight is our fight, its cause is our cause and her values are our values,” the vice president said to a standing ovation.
The vice president’s comments come a week after President Donald Trump met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Feb. 15.
“I’m looking at two-state and one-state solutions,” the president said during a joint press conference with Netanyahu. Trump has taken a different approach from his predecessors, introducing the idea of a multilateral effort to restore peace.
Trump is scheduled to speak at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time Friday morning at CPAC.
