JERUSALEM (JTA) — Two former campaign aides for President Donald Trump, including campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, are visiting Israel this week to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The Jewish Insider news website first reported the visit on Tuesday by Lewandowski and David Bossie, who served Trump as a deputy campaign manager. They are being considered to join Netanyahu’s campaign for a likely national election in March, Israel’s third vote in less than a year.

Netanyahu reportedly is revamping his strategy team.

McLaughlin is currently working for the Trump re-election campaign.
