U.S. President Donald Trump called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Tuesday and discussed his upcoming visit to Israel, senior officials told Haaretz on Wednesday morning.
The call, which took place shortly after Trump called Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Tuesday, was not publicized by either the White House or by the Prime Minister’s Office. Netanyahu’s office confirmed the phone call took place.
A senior official noted that the call took place at around 5 P.M. Tuesday Israel time, as Netanyahu was about to enter an event with his finance minister. The call lasted for about twenty minutes. Read more at Ha’Aretz.
