In interviews with Israeli political journalist, Barak Ravid for a book, former President Donald Trump revealed that his relationship with then Israel’s leader Benjamin Netanyahu deteriorated after Bibi congratulated Joe Biden on his victory over a year ago. Apparently, facing reality means you fall out of Trump’s good graces.
Leading up to the election and particularly after Joe Biden was announced as the next President, Trump has consistently insisted and propagated election fraud without evidence, claiming the results were inaccurate and that the election was rigged. The twice-impeached one-term President’s narcissistic brain is so flawed that he can’t accept his loss to Biden.
“I haven’t spoken to him since,” Trump said of the former Israeli prime minister. “F**k him,” the former President said, according to Axios.
“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,” Trump falsely said for the interview for Ravid’s book “Trump’s Peace: The Abraham Accords and the Reshaping of the Middle East.”

“I liked Bibi. I still like Bibi. But I also like loyalty. The first person to congratulate Biden was Bibi. And not only did he congratulate him, he did it on tape,” Trump told Ravid.
Melania Trump shared Netanyahu’s congratulatory video with her husband, and he said, “He was very early — like, earlier than most. I haven’t spoken to him since. F**k him.”
“For Bibi Netanyahu, before the ink was even dry, to do a message, and not only a message, to do a tape to Joe Biden talking about their great, great friendship — they didn’t have a friendship, because if they did, [the Obama administration] wouldn’t have done the Iran deal,” the former President said, according to Axios. “And guess what, now they’re going to do it again.”
When Trump “held an on-camera call with Netanyahu 10 days before the U.S. election to mark the normalization agreement between Israel and Sudan, Trump asked Netanyahu whether “Sleepy Joe” could have cut such a deal,” Ravid writes for Axios.
“Mr. President, one thing I can tell you is we appreciate the help for peace from anyone in America,” Netanyahu replied cautiously. Trump, however, bristled.
Trump said, “I can tell you that people were very angry with him when he was the first one to congratulate Biden.”
“The video was almost like he’s begging for love,” the former ‘resident said. “And I said, ‘My, my how things change.’ So, you know, I was disappointed. That hurt him badly with the people of Israel. As you know, I’m very popular in Israel. I think it hurt him very badly.”
What an incredibly flawed human being.
