Trump urges Israel to 'get their act together' amid election turmoil

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump, voicing impatience with close ally Israel, said on Sunday outside the White House that he was not happy about electoral upheaval there and urged the Israelis to "get their act together." Israeli lawmakers voted to dissolve parliament on Thursday, paving the way for a new election on Sept.

17 after veteran Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to form a government before a midnight deadline.

(Full Story) Trump is expected to keep up his support for Netanyahu, a right-wing leader who has forged close ties with the U.S. president over their tough stances on the Palestinians and Israel's arch-foe Iran.

He also floated the idea of a swift post-Brexit trade deal with the UK as he departed for Britain for a state visit laden with diplomatic peril, having already humiliated outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May over Brexit and challenged her to be tougher in dealing with China's Huawei.
