Trump’s Message to Israel

President-elect Donald Trump felt compelled to assure Israel that America has not totally abandoned them. On Twitter on Wednesday, he tweeted the following in response to the Obama administration’s unthinkable decision to abstain from a UN vote on Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

President Obama has had a hostile relationship with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu throughout his presidency. The latter repeatedly warned the White House that the Iranian nuclear Deal would spell disaster for Israel and embolden their adversary. Yet, Obama went ahead with the agreement. In one heated meeting between the two leaders in the White House, Obama claimed that Netanyahu lectured him about Israel’s vulnerable status in the Middle East.
