How They Do It–Israel Releases ‘Trump File’: The U.S. President’s Little-known 1989 Visit to the Jewish State

If confirmed, Trump’s upcoming visit to Israel won’t be his first. In 1989, the future U.S. president took a dive in Eilat and showed an interest in building a casino in the southern resort

ed note–although presented in a harmless, matter-of-fact manner, nevertheless this is Judea, Inc’s way of setting the stage for the release of all sorts of embarrassing information they plan to use against Trump in getting him to buckle to their demands, and particularly with the entire ‘Greater Israel’ project which he is not inclined to support. Furthermore, what it shows is that Israel was keeping an eye on him decades ago in the event that someone with his money and type-A personality decided to venture into the political realm.


I guess it is all just some harmless news item being presented in a matter-of-fact manner then, my bad.


Amid discussions between Israel and the White House on a possible visit by President Donald Trump, the state archives released a file Thursday detailing the president’s little-known first visit to the Jewish state almost 30 years ago, in 1989.

The so-called “Trump File” reveals that the Foreign Ministry attached great importance to the billionaire tycoon’s upcoming visit, even though there were no signs that could predict that he would be president one day.

Referring to Trump, a Foreign Ministry document from early July, 1989 states that “he is only willing to come at the invitation of the Prime Minister or Foreign Minister.” The ministry wanted to find out from the Israeli embassy in Washington if Trump had received an official invitation, and if so, in whose name and in what words.

The year was 1989 and Israel was celebrating 41 years of independence. Leading the country were Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir and President Chaim Herzog, Yitzhak Rabin was defense minister and Moshe Arens held the foreign affairs portfolio.

Ahead of the visit, the Foreign Ministry was asked to prepare a schedule that would make Trump’s visit enjoyable, while including efforts to interest him in investing in the country.

Among the projects that Trump showed an interest in during his visit was building a casino in Eilat. In the Trump file, one of the documents notes that this was the “practical reason” for Trump’s visit, “since that is Mr. Trump’s field.”

Trump, who was 43 at the time, arrived in Israel on July 29, 1989 on his private jet.  An unnamed deputy minister – probably Yossi Beilin, then-Finance Minister Shimon Peres’s deputy – welcomed the tycoon at the airport.

The next morning Trump had breakfast with Beilin and Teddy Kollek, the mayor of Jerusalem. They then went on a tour of Jerusalem’s Old City, several museums and Bethlehem, which was under full Israeli control at that time, before the establishment of the Palestinian Authority.

After lunch Trump flew to the Dead Sea, accompanied by Peres, where the billionaire was presented with a development project. He then flew to an area in the northern Negev desert that had been constructed for people who had been evacuated seven years earlier from the Israeli settlement of Yamit in Sinai. Trump also visited a moshav and a kibbutz and asked to see a playground he had donated to the Jewish National Fund.

Trump then traveled to Mitzpe Ramon in the Negev desert and visited the Ramon military base. He finished the day in Eilat, where he watched the sunset and dined at the Neptune Hotel, followed by a nighttime tour of the Red Sea resort town.

According to plan, Trump started his second day with a dive at the coral reef reserve in Eilat. He then attended to business, visiting several potential sites for investment – including an airport – and examined opportunities for investing in Tel Aviv and Herzliya. After meeting with then-Prime Minister Shamir, Trump returned to the U.S. by the end of the day.

The documents kept in the state archive’s Trump file also include quotes sent to the Foreign Ministry by different upscale hotels competing for the opportunity to host Trump. Hyatt Regency in Jerusalem, boasting a deluxe 5-star rating, offered a “room facing Jerusalem’s magnificent views, a fruit basket and a daily newspaper.” Ultimately, however, another hotel had the honor of hosting the billionaire. A letter to the Foreign Ministry from the Laromme Hotel confirms the reservation for the corresponding dates. 

The hotel made some concessions to its guests, saying that it would only charge Peres the rates for a regular room while giving him a suite. This implies that Trump and Peres slept at the same hotel during the businessman’s visit.

The question of who invited Trump and why is answered in a letter by journalist Mira Avrech, also kept in the archives. Three people claimed to have initiated the invitation: former Prime Minister Shamir, former Finance Minister Peres and former Eilat Mayor Rafi Hochman. According to Avrech, all three are correct since they indeed all invited Trump, albeit on different occasions. Considering purchasing El Al, Trump was keen to visit. Due to his concerns about internal Israeli politics, however, he requested an official invitation. The invitation was signed by Israel’s then-ambassador to the U.S., Moshe Arad, in the name of the prime minister and his substitute.

    You don’t own me
    I’m not just one of your many toys
    You don’t own me
    Don’t say I can’t go with other boys
    Don’t tell me what to do
    And don’t tell me what to say
    Please, when I go out with you
    Don’t put me on display

    Ah yes, how very nice that, amidst discussions re a possible visit by now President Trumpmeister, state archives releases a file detailing his first visit to the Jews-Only state in 1989. Albeit for the ethical purpose of casing the joint for a possible casino venture.

    So what could be the significance of this, ahem, disclosure in the pubic interest? That they’ve got the dope on him should he choose not to play footsies? But Trump must know this. After all, he wasn’t great mates with well-known Mossad agent and child-procurer Jeffrey Epstein for nuthin. You know, them cosy, cuddly, heavy-breathing weekends down at Epstein’s Mossad-financed Caribbean island (known in polite circles as ‘Orgy Island’), when the world was young, fun-loving, and carefree?

    But even kiddie fiddling might be tolerated if Trump would deliver on his promise to PUT AMERIKA FIRST. The good thing about Trump is that, unlike O’Bungler, the former’s support base is not likely to keep supporting him like a bunch of clowns should he fail in that endeavor. They’re not ideological in that sense. Then again, American tax payers have been suckered into wars they don’t want for so long, why stop now?

    Even if nothing of condemnation was revealed by Trump’s visit, the very fact that they can use his presence in their surroundings to create contrived lies of many issues makes it a problem. The kings of lies and manipulations create circumstances that appear controversial to the detriment of the politician. No politician can trust anyone in their arena, especially the Jewish arena of devils.
