Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to visit President Trump in the White House next week. This comes just two weeks before Israel's elections, where the Prime Minister is in a contentious re-election bid that is said to be an extremely tight race. The two leaders will discuss United States recognition of the Golan Heights as well as a host of security issues, as tensions with Gaza flare up.
The Prime Minister has come under investigation by Israel's Attorney General for a series of bribery and corruption charges. It was announced by the Attorney General in late February that Netanyahu would be indicted, the first time in Israeli history that a sitting Prime Minister has been indicted. Netanyahu may be facing another corruption investigation in the coming weeks. He has called the investigation a "witch hunt" and maintained his innocence.
