Netanyahu orders reluctant ministers to greet Trump upon arrival in Israel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday ordered all Israeli government ministers to attend an reception ceremony at Ben-Gurion Airport on Monday for arriving US President Donald Trump.
Netanyahu's order came after he stopped short a meeting of the heads of the coalition on Sunday, after most ministers refused to come to the airport.
The ministers allegedly did not want to attend the event at the airport due to the long hours they would have to wait on the tarmac in the sun.
