This week, Trump did an interview with some rather surprising comments about former Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Netanyahu was among the first of the world leaders to extend congratulations to Biden after the election was finalized.
This drew the ire of Trump, and now Netanyahu has decided to take a less in-your-face approach to respond.
I Appreciate You
When Trump dropped an F-bomb regarding Netanyahu, most of us were pretty stunned.
Netanyahu was doing what was expected of him with a new White House occupant coming into office.
However, he did go a bit overboard, gushing over his “old friend,” Joe Biden.
I am sure that is what got to Trump more than everything, especially when you consider how much Trump did to help Israel when he was in office.
It was not that I was surprised so much that it upset Trump as I was regarding the language he used.
Netanyahu seemed to take it all in stride, however.
After hearing Trump’s comments, he stated, “It was important for me to congratulate the incoming president.
“I highly appreciate President Trump’s big contribution to Israel and its security.
“I also appreciate the importance of the strong alliance between Israel and the U.S.”
Democrats have always applied pressure to Israel, so we could not have expected Netanyahu to get controversial right out of the gate.
If Netanyahu finds his way back to power and Trump wins in 2024, I would fully expect this to be water under the bridge.
Do you think Trump and Netanyahu will look past these comments if they both come back to office?
