Daniel explains that a new leader will emerge in the United States, as King of the North.

The one who comes against him will do as he pleases, and no one will be able to stand against him; he will also stand in the Glorious Land, but with destruction in his hand (Dan 11:16).
This powerful leader who destroys ISIS will fully commit himself to supporting Israel. Unlike previous leaders who have tried to be fair to both sides, he will be totally committed to supporting Israel. He does what he pleases, ignoring pressure from other nations and flouting the decisions of international organisations. Donald Trump’s decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is an expression of this resolve. Daniel explains that this political leader will achieve two main things for Israel.
