Netanyahu to Meet Separately With Trump and Clinton on Sunday


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet separately with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on Sunday, several sources with knowledge of the meetings told CNN.

The meetings were arranged in the last 24 hours and will take place in New York City, one of the sources told CNN. This source added that the meeting with Trump came to fruition following a phone call between the GOP nominee’s representatives and Netanyahu’s office after it was clear that a similar meeting was going to take place with Clinton.

Another source disputed that account, saying Trump’s camp reached an agreement with Netanyahu’s office first.

Additional details about the meetings, including what will be discussed, were not immediately disclosed.

Clinton and Trump, the respective Democratic and Republican candidates for president, are set to face off in their first debate Monday night.
