Netanyahu said, “President Trump has led a very important effort in the past few weeks, in pointing out Iran’s violations.” He pointed out that Iran writes directly on their missiles, “Death to Israel,” and said it is vitally important to roll back Iran’s ability to launch nuclear weapons.
Netanyahu said Israel and the United States have always been strong allies, but said to Trump, “Under your leadership, I am confident the relationship will get even stronger.”
