Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President-elect Donald Trump had a bit of a “bromance” moment on Twitter yesterday.
Following Israel’s shameful treatment in recent days at the hands of the outgoing Obama Administration, Trump urged the Jewish state to hold strong.
“We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. They used to have a great friend in the US…” Trump wrote.
Trump again vowed that once he is in office, things will look very different. “Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!” he posted in reference to his inauguration day later next month.
Less than an hour later, Netanyahu responded:
“President-elect Trump, thank you for your warm friendship and your clear-cut support for Israel!”
Many have speculated that once Trump is in office, these two leaders are likely to see the situation as them against the world.
