(Excerpted from: Friedman: The Media Blew Things out of Proportion)

In an interview published in Hebrew in Israel HaYom today, U.S. Ambassador David Friedman made the following comments:

Regarding Jonathan Pollard, who was released from a US prison after being convicted of spying for Israel, but cannot return home to Israel, Friedman said, "The truth is that I have not yet spoke to Trump about the issue. Personally, I think Pollard has suffered enough. I think we need to allow him to come back to Israel. I think we need to allow him to visit Israel as long as he is healthy enough to do so. But again, I have not spoken with the President about it."
