President Trump's Helicopter Ride to Jerusalem

(Times of Israel) Raphael Ahren interviews Michael Oren - Donald Trump has never been to Israel. After landing Monday at Ben-Gurion Airport, he is scheduled to fly via helicopter to Jerusalem.

"Seeing the actual dimension of Israel is shocking to people. They understand our security concerns much more. 'Wow, this place is tiny. Wait a minute, that's the West Bank, and that's the sea?
