Trump appeared to be particularly incensed by a video released by Netanyahu on Jan. 20, the day Biden was inaugurated, in which Netanyahu said he and Biden had a “warm personal friendship going back many decades.”
“I haven’t spoken to him since. F—- him,” Trump was quoted as saying.
“Nobody did more for Bibi. And I liked Bibi. I still like Bibi,” Trump said, referring to Netanyahu by his nickname, in the remarks published by the Yediot Aharonot newspaper. “But I also like loyalty… Bibi could have stayed quiet. He has made a terrible mistake.”
Cue the delusions of grandeur:
“I’ll tell you what — had I not come along I think Israel was going to be destroyed,” Trump said. “I think Israel would have been destroyed maybe by now.”
Most of the world thinks that Israel’s existence is under greater threat now that it is no longer under the treaty that Trump blew up. Worse leaders, greater uranium enrichment-nice job, clownshoe.
