The security delegation was organized by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and was led by National Security Council head Yaakov Nagel. The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer was also present during meetings.” From Politico via Ynet.  Though the Politico head is "MOSSAD chief and TRUMP huddle," the Forward says the delegation met wih Trump's staff.
