Former US President Donald Trump swore at former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for congratulating Joe Biden on his election to his current post, and also accused the ex-Prime Minister of disloyalty, Axios reported.
Trump made the swearings in interviews with journalist Barak Ravid for a book “Trump's peace: The Abraham Accords and the Reshaping of the Middle East.”
"The first person that congratulated [Biden] was Bibi Netanyahu, the man that I did more for than any other person I dealt with. Bibi could have stayed quiet. He has made a terrible mistake. I haven’t spoken to him since. F**k him," Donald Trump said.
Congratulations @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris. Joe, weâve had a long & warm personal relationship for nearly 40 years, and I know you as a great friend of Israel. I look forward to working with both of you to further strengthen the special alliance between the U.S. and Israel.
Trump stressed that he "liked and still likes Netanyahu," but he also values loyalty. The ex-President of the United States didn't like the fact that the former Israeli prime minister also recorded congratulations on a video that his wife Melania showed him.
Trump said that Netanyahu was allegedly the first to congratulate Biden, but according to Axios reporters, in reality, this was not the case: he waited more than 12 hours and expressed his congratulations after American television announced the official election results.
Netanyahu was dismissed from office in June after he failed to form a government following deadlocked elections.
In the interviews given in April and July, Trump also expressed his belief that he managed to save Israel from destruction.
The former American President Trump announced that the Israeli settlements in the disputed territory were not illegal back in 2019, putting the US out of step with the UN, and recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Syrian Golan Heights.
Netanyahu reported that Israel was planning to build a new settlement and called it Trump Height.
