Netanyahu Responds to Trump Tweet… Thanks America for “Warm Friendship and Clear Cut Support”


To say that President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu aren’t exactly the best of friends would be a massive understatement, as the two men appear to hold a thinly disguised disdain for each other.

It should be obvious to most why Netanyahu is no fan of Obama’s, given the outgoing U.S. president’s history of embracing the Muslim world at the expense of the Jewish nation, his support for sworn enemies of Israel, his cozying-up to Iran, and of course his recent refusal to veto a harsh anti-Israel resolution in the United Nations.

But by all appearances things will be drastically different once Obama has been replaced by Republican President-elect Donald Trump, as an exchange on social media Wednesday demonstrated.

Trump post a pair of tweets that together read: “We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. They used to have a great friend in the U.S., but … not anymore. The beginning of the end was the horrible Iran deal, and now this (U.N.)! Stay strong Israel, Jan. 20 is fast approaching!”

Two hours later, Netanyahu responded to Trump’s tweets with a post of his own to Facebook, thanking Trump for both his obvious friendship and stated support for Israel.

The Israeli leader wrote back, “President-elect Trump, thank you for your warm friendship and your clear-cut support for Israel!”

The Washington Examiner noted that the social media posts from the two strong leaders came just hours ahead of a planned speech by Secretary of State John Kerry which lambasted Israel for its settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, calling them “flagrant violations” of international law.

For the first time in eight years, Israel feels like they will have a true friend in the White House, and we can only hope and pray that the relationship between the two leaders continues to grow and strengthen.
