US President Donald Trump aimed to make inroads in the politically important Jewish-American vote with a Florida speech where he declared himself the best friend the “Israeli” entity has ever had.

At a conference in Hollywood Saturday, the Republican real estate magnate said Jewish-Americans had been wrong to vote for Democrats under his predecessor Barack Obama.

“So many of you voted for people in the last administration,” he said.

“Someday you’ll have to explain that to me because I don’t think they liked ‘Israel’ too much.”

By contrast, Trump said the "Israeli" entity "has never had a better friend in the White House than your president, Donald J. Trump.”

He was speaking at a meeting of the “Israeli”-American Council, a nonprofit whose funders include billionaire Jewish-American casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam, both of them high-profile Trump supporters.
