This would be a slap in the face to President Obama who attacked Israel and Netanyahu throughout his presidency.
Jerusalem Post reported:
US President-elect Donald Trump’s team has “aggressively courted” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to attend the incoming president’s January 20 inauguration, according to a report on Saturday by the New York Post.
President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team, led by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, has been pushing for Netanyahu to attend the January 20th festivities and for the two world leaders to meet before then, a source told the Post.
“There’s a plan for Trump to meet with Netanyahu,” said the source. “They’re talking all the time. And Netanyahu is talking about possibly going to the inauguration.”
Netanyahu thanked Donald Trump for his support this weekend.
