When Benjamin Netanyahu overtook David Ben-Gurion to become the longest-serving prime minister in Israeli history, his American counterpart and ally was among the first to send congratulations. Arutz Sheva’s Elad Benari reports on Trump trumpeting Netanyahu’s making history, as well as his service to make Israel a better place for all to live:

US President Donald Trump on Sunday congratulated Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for passing David Ben Gurion and becoming the longest serving prime minister in the history of Israel.

Under your leadership, we’ve made the alliance between our two remarkable countries stronger than ever. I know there’s more to come…”
