A return to order is set to transpire under the president elect who is already connecting with foreign leaders allied with the US.
Some of those connections have irked adversaries around the world. Such opposition hasn’t stopped President-elect Donald Trump from furthering bonds he believes benefit US interests.
Long-standing ally Israel is already embracing Trump as he prepares to take the reins as the pre-eminent world leader.
After a rift with the current administration, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is ready for a new beginning with Trump. Watch here:
During a “60 Minutes” interview, Netanyahu said he knows Trump well, and knows that the president-elect’s support for Israel is “clear.”
I think his attitude is support. (Trump) feels very warmly about the Jewish state, about the Jewish people and about Jewish people. There’s no question about that.
He added he is looking for Trump to be instrumental in brokering peace between Israel and Palestine.
“I’d like to have President Trump, when he gets into the White House, help me work on that. I’d like to see if the Arab states can help me achieve that. It’s a new reality. A new possibility,” Netanyahu said.
He acknowledged that he had “differences of opinion” with President Barack Obama, particularly over the Iran nuclear deal.
Netanyahu said the Iran deal threatens the existence of Israel and he stood up to Obama on the issue.
Trump continues to garner support from world leaders as he addresses tough issues facing US security.
The US has supported Israel throughout modern history. Trump plans to continue that legacy while rebuffing Obama’s tepid support for the US ally.
The possibilities for success in the Middle East increase significantly with Trump standing by Netanyahu and all of Israel.
