    Hayat Museimi said that she expects US President-elect Donald Trump to increase the US support for Israel upon reaching the White House.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Member of Jordanian parliament Hayat Museimi told Sputnik Thursday that she expects US President-elect Donald Trump to increase the US support for Israel upon reaching the White House.

    "I predict an increasing support to the Zionist entity after Trump's arrival to the White House," Museimi said.

    She added that both the Democratic and Republican parties share a similar policy toward the Arab region and the policy in general is not in the favor of the region itself.

    Museimi also expressed concerns on the repercussion of Trump's election on the status of Arabs and Muslims in the United States and hoped that sensible people inside the new administration would be able to adjust the rhythm of the new President.

    Trump won an unexpected victory during the 2016 election with 290 electoral votes, while his rival Hillary Clinton received 232 votes despite winning the popular vote by a margin of over 200,000. The inauguration is due on January 20.
