The Republican governor of South Dakota signed an executive order on Tuesday prohibiting state offices from conducting business with companies boycotting Israel.Note, it was Noem's first order of business.
President Trump signed a similar executive order in December to make Jews on college campuses a "protected class" so the federal government could pull funding from colleges which aren't sufficiently pro-Israel.

Politico reported in September 2019 that the US government concluded that Israel appears to have placed stingray cell phone spying devices near the White House and throughout Washington DC to spy on the president and congress.
