Bibi Appreciates Trump

This weekend, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sat down with Fox News' Mark Levin for an interview on his relationship with the U.S. administration. The Times of Israel's Eric Cortellessa reports that Netanyahu praised his bond with Donald Trump, saying they have had "a direct and very positive relationship from the get-go":

Netanyahu has consistently trumpeted his close relationship with the US president, whom he met with last week in Washington, highlighting Trump’s willingness to come through on a number of policy shifts, such as recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and a seemingly coordinated stance toward Iran. On Wednesday, he said the two had never had a disagreement.

“There’s a certain chemistry,” Netanyahu told pro-Trump radio host Mark Levin, in an interview aired Sunday on Fox News. “The president likes to cut through, I don’t want to call it noise, but you know, there are two initials in English — he just cuts right through it. It’s refreshing. When we talk about serious things, he gets right to the point.”

Asked to describe his relationship with Trump, which Levin said seemed “very unique, very personal,” the Israeli premier said he had “a direct and very positive relationship from the get-go” with the controversial and incendiary American president.

The bilateral meeting between Netanyahu and Trump Monday at the White House was their fifth bilateral summit since the US president took office in January of 2017...

Throughout his US tour, Netanyahu repeatedly thanked Trump for his decision last year to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and set in motion plans to move the US embassy there from Tel Aviv. He also praised Trump’s ultimatum on the Iran nuclear deal — saying either Congress and America’s European allies would  amend the accord or he would walk away from it.
