Hoping things will work out with Israel’s coalition formation and Bibi and I can continue to make the alliance between America and Israel stronger than ever. A lot more to do!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 27, 2019
“In an unprecedented move, President Trump publicly intervened in the domestic political crisis in Israel and backed Prime Minister Netanyahu’s efforts to form a coalition 48 hours before the deadline for putting together a new government.
Why it matters: Trump’s move is unprecedented because it is an intervention in coalition negotiations in a different country in order to help one the political players, and more so because it is done publicly. …
Flashback: Netanyahu is one of Trump’s main allies around the world. During the last election in Israel, Trump intervened in favor of Netanyahu and Netanyahu used Trump in his TV ads and on billboards around Israel.
Two weeks before the election, Trump recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel. This decision was a huge win for Netanyahu and had an influence on Israeli public opinion.
The bottom line: Netanyahu, who is facing indictments for bribes, breach of trust and fraud, is facing a big political crisis these days. …
Update (1:30pm EST): Netanyahu referred to Trump’s tweet in a statement that was broadcasted live on all the television channels.
Netanyahu thanked Trump for his tweet and said: “Trump is right – we still have a lot of work to do.”
The foreign policy of the United States is a joke around the world.
This is a statement of fact. It is not “anti-Semitic” to say this. It is obvious to everyone now that Israel has established total control over American foreign policy. It has gotten so bad that Blompf recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights to help Bibi win reelection.
