U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today issued the below statement on David Friedman, President Trump's nominee to serve as U.S. Ambassador to Israel.

"I've heard from many Ohioans with deep concerns about David Friedman, President Trump's nominee to be ambassador to Israel," said Brown. "Our ambassador to Israel must represent the broad American support for a two-state solution and be a passionate advocate for peace. Mr. Friedman's past comments, temperament, and lack of experience give me serious doubts that he can fulfill America's commitment to Israel's security and values."
