His speech, marked the first time in his race for the White House that the New York billionaire read from a prepared speech and used a teleprompter. Over the course of his campaign, Trump has repeatedly vowed not to use a teleprompter, saying last August that the technology should be outlawed “for anybody running for President.”

"We will send a clear signal that there is no daylight between America and our most reliable ally, the state of Israel,” he said.
