State Department: Israel aid won't be reduced

The U.S. State Department clarified on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s proposed budget for the 2018 fiscal year would not reduce aid to Israel, but added that assistance levels to other nations, including Egypt and Jordan, were still being evaluated.

“Our assistance to Israel is … guaranteed and that reflects obviously our strong commitment to one of our strongest partners and allies,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner said, according to Reuters.
