‏Speaking in the Knesset plenum, Speaker Yuli Edelstein (Likud) gave his congratulations to President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday morning:

"Distinguished Members of Knesset, allow me to congratulate, on behalf of the Knesset and myself, the elected President of the United States of America, Mr. Donald J. Trump and Vice President elect Mr. Mike Pence.

I am confident that the longstanding friendship and alliance between the United States and Israel will remain strong during Mr. Trump's term in office.

We send our best wishes to the American People and are certain that they will remain united in dealing with the challenges facing America and the world today.
‏ Good luck!"
Edelstein gave his address in English, an irregular step for Israeli politicians speaking in the Knesset.
