President Trump very promptly dismissed the bogus story by the Leftist publication Politico. It seems that members of the anti-Israel Obama administration were behind this false story. It is not a coincidence that such a story would leak right before an Israeli election. Obama officials have a history of trying to take down PM Netanyahu on the eve of Israeli elections.
Israelis who are thinking of voting against Netanyahu next week, need to understand who Israel’s enemies are. The anti-Israel Left in the United States will be overjoyed if Netanyahu is defeated on September 17th. That is because Israel will be a much weaker country should Netanyahu lose to the Leftist Blue and White Party.
Trump: ‘I don’t think the Israelis were spying on us’
By Israel Hayom, September 13, 2019:
US President Donald Trump said on Thursday he did not believe Israel was spying on the United States, dismissing a media report claiming Israel was most likely behind cellphone surveillance devices found near the White House and elsewhere in Washington.
Politico reported the miniature surveillance devices, colloquially known as “StingRays,” were discovered and that they were most likely linked to the Israelis. Israel has denied the report.
“I don’t believe the story. I don’t think the Israelis were spying on us, I would find that hard to believe,” Trump told reporters on the White House lawn. “My relationship with Israel has been great. You look at the [recognition of Israeli sovereignty on] the Golan Heights, moving the embassy to Jerusalem, even what’s happening with Iran; Iran is a much different country than it was two and a half years ago. Anything is possible, but I don’t believe it.”
It is unclear when the devices were planted and how the alleged Israeli connection was established. The report was based on two former senior US officials, although it is unclear what administration they worked for.
According to the Politico report, “The devices were likely intended to spy on President Donald Trump, one of the former officials said, as well as his top aides and closest associates – though it’s not clear whether the Israeli efforts were successful.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed the report outright, saying on Thursday that the accusation was an “absolute lie.” Netanyahu’s office has stressed that Israel was in full compliance with its longstanding pledge not to engage in espionage in the United States.
Watch Mark Levin explain the latest plot by former Obama officials to take down PM Netanyahu.

The fake, Obama administration sourced Israel spying story along with the outright stupid "Israel controls Arab leader" story are indications of a major push to destroy the ties @netanyahu has built with @realDonaldTrump and the Arab world through years of hard work…./2
