Trump scraps planned trip to Israel

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republican Donald Trump has scrapped a planned trip to Israel, saying he will schedule it later -- after becoming president.

The trip had become a headache for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu is viewed as a Republican Party supporter and has a lot in common with Trump, but that's a risky position after Trump called for keeping Muslims from entering the U.S. and making controversial comments to a Jewish group.

Trump tweeted Thursday that he is postponing the trip.
