Trump taps hard-liner for ambassador to Israel

Hosted by

Liberal American Jewish groups are already working to prevent confirmation of Donald Trump's choice of David Friedman to be America's Ambassador to Israel. Not only does Trump's advisor and former bankruptcy lawyer have no diplomatic experience, he represents a complete departure from decades of US policy toward Israel and the Palestinians.
