Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton both said they would improve relations with Israel while formally announcing their presidential runs.

“I will rebuild our vital friendships,” Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, said Miami in Monday, formally launching his bid for the Republican nomination. “That starts by standing with the brave, democratic State of Israel.”


Republicans accuse President Barack Obama of distancing the United States from Israel.


Bush has garnered many of the Jewish donors who backed his brother, President George W. Bush.


Clinton, speaking Sunday in Des Moines, Iowa, on the day after her formal launch in New York, also suggested more could be done to improve relations with allies, although she did not mention Obama.
