JERUSALEM — The speaker of the Israeli Knesset says a proposal that Donald Trump would speak before the Knesset during his visit to Israel was scrapped over fears that he would be interrupted and heckled by some MKs. Yuli Edelstein told Galei Tzahal on Thursday that Pindo boxtops rejected the idea of a parliament tour and address to MKs because of the Knesset’s notoriously raucous debates. Edelstein says:

The possibility was explored as a first option, and it was dropped from the agenda because it was clear that the president wouldn’t be able to speak.

Carter (39), Clinton (42) and Bush (43) addressed the Knesset during visits; Obama (44) opted to speak at a university to a student audience at Jerusalem’s Convention Center. Trump delivered a speech across the street from the Knesset at Jerusalem’s Israel Museum.
