Earlier today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu personally thanked President-elect Donald Trump for some of Trump’s recent comments regarding the State of Israel.
“President-elect Trump, thank you for your warm friendship and your clear-cut support for Israel!” Netanyahu wrote.
He attached image captures of two tweets Trump wrote earlier today. “We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect,” Trump wrote. “They used to have a great friend in the U.S., but…….not anymore.”
Last week, Egypt introduced a resolution critical of Israeli settlements but postponed it after direct intervention from Trump. Friday’s vote only happened once New Zealand, Malaysia, Senegal and Venezuela sponsored it instead.
