Israel, where Trump wanted to land his helicopter atop Masada..

Trump couldn't land his helicopter on Israel's ancient fortress—so he canceled his visit, refusing to take cable car https://t.co/51lw5z8nPr pic.twitter.com/CIGUB9Bwx9

Unlike former presidents who have made the trip, such as George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Trump declined to land the helicopter at a base of the historic site and then take the cable car up, preferring to cancel the visit altogether.

It's fuckin Masada. Even IDF doesn't land choppers on the top. ihttps://t.co/MBzPQEUDq7

And the Western Wall is in the West Bank?

All in all, one might wish there were a Will McCants to proffer speechwriting advice — or, hey, write speeches — for Saudi, Israel, NATO, the vatican, onwards…
