Former US President Donald Trump on Thursday passed a group of Jews on a golf course in Miami, Florida, and told them that he gave Israel the Golan Heights.

Noticing the group and their excitement to see him, Trump turned and waved.

"Golan Heights, I gave you Golan Heights," Trump told them. "We gave you Golan Heights, remember that. Have a good day."

In response, one of the group can be heard saying, "Yes, you're the best."

In March 2019, Trump signed an order recognizing the Golan Heights as sovereign Israeli territory.

As he sat down to sign the order, Trump said that the act was "a long time in the making. It should have taken place many decades ago," and emphasized that the US-Israel alliance "has never been stronger."

"Israel is an inspiration, a trusted ally, and a cherished friend. The United States will always stand by its side," he said at the time.
