Pastor John Hagee, who founded CUFI in 2006, praised the Trump administration in a statement.

“We are deeply honored that the vice president will be joining us at our Washington Summit this summer,” Hagee said. “From the day President Trump took office, and each day since, the US-Israel relationship has grown stronger and more vibrant. We are extremely grateful for the Trump Administration’s strong support of the Jewish state.”
