Positioned on the far right of the Israeli political map Friedman is known for backing Israeli West Bank settlement policies. His appointment is formalised just one week before Trump's expected visit in Israel and following Secretary of State Tillerson's declaration that Trump is weighing how a decision on a US Embassy move to Jerusalem would impact the prospects of an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.
