There are believed to be thousands of American Israelis who are eligible to vote in the US election, according to Israeli news reports. Many come from states with a high number of electoral votes, such as New York and California, or from swing states such as Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Republicans hope to draw in those voters in an effort to put the swing states in Trump’s column.
