Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has a positive outlook on the future of US-Israeli relations under President-elect Donald Trump, CNN reports.
In a “60 Minutes” interview Sunday evening, Netanyahu told interviewer Lesley Stahl that he is excited to work with Trump going forward.
“I know Donald Trump. I know him very well. And I think his attitude, his support for Israel is clear,” Netanyahu says. “He feels very warmly about the Jewish state, about the Jewish people and about Jewish people. There’s no question about that.”
On the Iran nuclear deal and Barack Obama:
“I think that suppose we had the greatest of personal chemistry, OK? So, what? You think I wouldn’t stand up against the Iran deal if I thought, as I did, that it endangers the existence of Israel? Of course I would.”
America, he said, is “an irreplaceable ally.”
