Trump supporters drive to U.S. embassy in Jerusalem

Both Republicans and Democrats have been campaigning in Israel for the past several weeks, targeting American-Israelis who live abroad.

Votes everywhere are precious.

Israel is in focus because many dual nationality American-Israelis are registered in swing states such as Florida and Pennsylvania, which could help decide the race.

Republican President Donald Trump has had an outsized influence in Israel during his term in office, delighting many in Israel by recognizing Jerusalem as its capital and moving the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv, a move that angered Palestinians.

The parties' estimates of the number of eligible dual citizens resident in Israel range between 100,000 to 300,000.
