“He is a Pathetic Man” Former Israeli PM Ehud Olmert Lights Into Trump

When Donald Trump became president, he essentially ignored the long-term allies of the United States. Instead, he gave his attention to strong-arm leaders like Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un.

He said Israel holds the Hamas government, and the Hamas leadership in Syria, responsible for the current situation. (Photo by Lior Mizrahi/Getty Images)

One notable exception was Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel. For most of his term, Trump and Netanyahu were on quite friendly terms. When the Israel PM congratulated Joe Biden on his victory, though, he lost Trump’s favor. And this, says former Israel PM Ehud Olmert, makes the former US president a “pathetic man.”

When asked about Trump no longer being on speaking terms with Netanyahu, Olmert responded, “Everyone knows my opinion of Netanyahu. I am not fond of him, I don’t appreciate him, I don’t trust him, I don’t believe in his integrity. The fact that Netanyahu congratulated Biden on his election victory shows that he acted as we should expect the Israeli PM to act – to congratulate the duly elected American president.”

The former Israeli leader continued:

“Trump said that the fact that Netanyahu congratulated Biden is a betrayal of the special relationship between Israel and the US; that is crazy and beyond understanding, he is a pathetic man.”
