Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is optimistic about his country’s future with incoming President Donald Trump.
“I know Donald Trump,” Netanyahu said in a CBS “60 Minutes” interview that aired on Sunday. “And I think his attitude, his support for Israel is clear. He feels very warmly about the Jewish state, about the Jewish people. There’s no question about that.”
Israel and the U.S. faced tense relations under President Obama’s administration, a fact the prime minister attributes partly to the different opinions the two leaders had.
“I had differences of opinion with President Obama,” he said, “the most well-known, of course, is Iran.”
Author Joel Rosenberg noted that the Israeli prime minister is “supremely optimistic” about the future of his nation, speaking to Fox News on Sunday. Rosenberg, who lives in Israel, said Netanyahu is looking at a Republican friend in the White House for the first time since he has been prime minister.
He added that 83 percent of Israelis also believe that Trump will be pro-Israel and the president-elect’s cabinet picks are setting up an administration that will seriously take on the threat of international terror.
