Former President Donald Trump lashed out at Binyamin Netanyahu for congratulating President Joe Biden on his victory in last year’s election, Yediot Acharonot reported Friday.
“It was early. OK? Let’s put it this way — he greeted him very early. Earlier than most world leaders. I’ve not spoken to him since. F**k him,” Trump told Israeli journalist Barak Ravid during an April interview which was published by Axios Friday.
In interviews earlier this year with journalist Barak Ravid, Trump expressed fury at a video Netanyahu circulated online in which he congratulated Biden. Trump said he values ‘loyalty’, adding that he never expected Netanyahu to change sides so quickly.
“Nobody did more for Bibi. And I liked Bibi. I still like Bibi,” Trump said, referring to Netanyahu by his nickname, in the remarks published by Yediot. “But I also like loyalty… Bibi could have stayed quiet. He has made a terrible mistake.”
“If you look at the leaders of other countries — like Brazil —he waited months. Putin. Many other leaders. Mexico. All of them also felt that the election was over. But they, too, were waiting. No one did more than me for Bibi. Money too. We gave them a lot of money and gave them soldiers. We did everything.”
Netanyahu congratulated Biden the day after the results were called in his favour on November 8, 2020.
