President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were very positive and happy when they met together in Jerusalem.
President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu put their chummy relationship on public display Monday during joint remarks from Jerusalem.
Netanyahu, who had a frosty relationship with former President Obama, grinned throughout the press conference while swiping at Trump’s predecessor.
“We understand each other and so much of the things we wish to accomplish for both of our countries,” Netanyahu said.
He thanked Trump for his “deep commitment to Israel’s future” and, taking a shot at Obama, said he appreciated “the reassertion of American leadership in the Middle East.”
He said that he and Trump are so at ease they could “quote each other,” and that they passed the day discussing their shared visions on everything from deregulation to economics.
Trump repeated his vow to bring peace to the Middle East.
“I believe a new level of partnership is possible and will happen and will bring greater safety to this region, greater security to the U.S., and greater prosperity to the world,” Trump said.
“This includes a renewed effort at peace between the Israelis and Palestinians, and I thank the prime minister for his commitment to he peace process. He’s working very hard at it — it’s not easy. I’ve heard its one of the toughest deals of all, but I have a feeling we’ll get there eventually, I hope.”
