When Benjamin Netanyahu was up for re-election in 2015, Obama sent taxpayer money to a left-wing campaign group to help defeat the Israeli Prime Minister.
When Netanyahu was re-elected, Obama was incensed. He did not even want to congratulate Netanyahu by phone. When Obama finally did speak to Netanyahu, he promised that the U.S would change its pro-Israel posture at the UN. In December 2016, Obama made good on that promise.
What a difference two and a half years makes. Prime Minister Netanyahu is no longer forced to tolerate the Jew-hating and anti-Israel President Obama. Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu is working with the pro-Jewish and pro-Israel President Trump.
Trump congratulates Netanyahu on his re-election, by Christina Wilkie, CNBC, April 10, 2019:
President Donald Trump on Wednesday congratulated incumbent Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his apparent win in the country’s elections.
“I’d like to congratulate Bibi Netanyahu, it looks like that race has been won by him,” Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House. “It may be a little early, but it looks like he’s won it in good fashion.”
“He’s been a great ally and he’s a friend,” Trump said. “That was a well thought out race.” Trump later called Netanyahu on the phone to congratulate him, the prime minister’s office said in a statement.
As of Wednesday morning, vote counts appeared to give Netanyahu a historic fifth term in office. His Likud party was deadlocked with the new Blue and White party led by former military chief Benny Gantz with 35 seats each in the 120-member parliament. But Likud and its traditional political allies were in command of a 65-55 majority, according to The Associated Press. Israel’s president, Reuven Rivlin, will consult with party representatives next week before picking the candidate with the best chance of assembling a parliamentary majority, according to AP.
'Everybody said you can't have peace in the Middle East with Israel and the Palestinians. I think we have a chance and I think we have a better chance now that Netanyahu won,' Trump said.📰 Read more HERE: i24ne.ws/M7AY30ooe5b
