Washington: President Barack Obama delivered a well-received speech to the people of Israel and finished the second day of his trip with a State Dinner at the home of Israeli President Shimon Peres on Thursday night.
Obama said that since he was getting pretty good at Hebrew, he would propose a toast—even though his wine was taken away.
According to Politico, Obama also asked for another glass of wine.
His toast, delivered in Hebrew, was translated as ‘until you’re 120 years old’. It ended with ‘L’Chaim’, to life.
After taking a sip, he said that the wine was good, adding that the photograph should be deleted as people would think that he was having too much fun in Israel.
