Already in 2013, before becoming a politician, U.S. President-elect Donald Trump stated support for Israel and admiration for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Then famous as a billionaire and entrepreneur, Trump took part in a video showing his support for Netanyahu and the Likud party ahead of Israel’s 2013 general election.
Trump praised Netanyahu as a strong leader, saying that was exactly what Israel needed.
During the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, Netanyahu refused to get involved or to side with any candidate.
Netanyahu was the first world leader to call and congratulate the incoming president on his victory. In return, Trump invited the Israeli premier to Washington.
