Donald Trump met with members of the Jewish media on Thursday, days before he and other candidates vie for the Orthodox vote in the New York presidential primaries.

Trump, the frontrunner in the Republican primary, talked about his AIPAC speech, which he said “got the biggest ovations of the night.”

On Israel, Trump asked his lawyer, Jason Greenblatt, give his opinion. Regarding Yehuda and Shomron, Greenblatt said, “I would not call it ‘occupied territories.’ They are over the Green Line, for sure, they are settlements.”

Asked about a federal tax credit for private-school education, Trump said he’s aware that there’s talk of it in Congress but he’s withholding judgment until the tax code is overhauled. “But I’m a big fan of competition in schools.”
