Netanyahu on Trump: 'His Support for Israel Is Clear'
After a rift with the Obama administration, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is ready for a new beginning with President-elect Donald Trump.
During a "60 Minutes" interview, Netanyahu said that he knows Trump well and knows that the president-elect's support for Israel is "clear."
“He feels very warmly about the Jewish state, about the Jewish people and about Jewish people. There’s no question about that,” Netanyahu said.
He added that 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 Obama, particularly over the Iran nuclear deal.
