Speaking at the Economic Club of Washington DC, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the ongoing investigations involving him and said he has “no issues” with US President Donald Trump.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke on Wednesday at the Economic Club of Washington. He addressed Israel’s economic situation, his relationship with US President Donald Trump and the multiple investigations involving him.
“I have fewer disagreements with Trump,” Netanyahu said. “Actually, I still haven’t found any issues with Trump.” He added that he believes Trump will go down in history as one of the most significant figures for Israel. “We’ll remember Trump as the president who recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moved the embassy there,” he said.
When asked about his favorite part of being prime minister, Netanyahu said, jokingly, “The investigations.” He then stressed that the multiple police investigations into corruption allegations against him do not distract him from doing his job.
Netanyahu also addressed the ongoing coalition crisis in Israel over a bill to exempt yeshiva students from serving in the army. “What I want is to be able to complete the term of this government,” he said. “If all parties of this coalition … agree, then that’s what we’ll do. If not, we’ll go to elections now.”
