PolitiFact Florida: Would Donald Trump be 'neutral' between Israel and enemies as pro-Marco Rubio PAC says?



A political action committee supporting Marco Rubio portrays Donald Trump as not being in the Israel fan club.

In a TV ad running in Florida, a screen shot shows a man wearing a bandana featuring what appears to be Arabic letters holding a rocket-propelled grenade.

Trump "says he would be neutral between Israel and its enemies," says the Conservative Solutions PAC ad.

Is that accurate?

Trump did make a statement about being "neutral" in negotiations between Israel and Palestinians, but the ad omits other statements Trump made in support of Israel.

See what PolitiFact Florida found and here are the Truth-O-Meter records for Rubio and Trump.
