Israeli lawmakers urged the government Monday to reopen talks with America on a defense aid deal signed in 2016 in the hope that U.S. President Donald Trump might ease a requirement that American aid money be spent on U.S. equipment. Under the deal signed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and then U.S. President Barack Obama, the U.S. would provide Israel with $38 billion in military assistance over 10 years, the largest such aid package in U.S. history.All the aid will now have to be spent on U.S. equipment by 2026 .
