Netanyahu: Trump Feels ‘Very Warmly’ About Israel, Jews
US President-elect Donald Trump feels “very warmly” about Israel and the Jewish people, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes. In an excerpt from the interview, the Israeli leader said: “I know Donald Trump. I know him very well … his support for Israel is clear. He feels very warmly about the Jewish state, about the Jewish people and about Jewish people. There’s no question about that.”
Asked if he expected a better relationship with Washington after the tumultuous years of Barack Obama’s administration, Netanyahu admitted that he had had differences of opinion with Obama, particularly on the US-led nuclear accord with Iran. But he insisted that the matter was never personal.
